    Malware error on conceptart.org

    I was using google chrome and got the below error on page 100 of "the cheer me up thread".

    I know i could just switch browsers but it still seemed relevant to let it be known. if there is in fact malware creeping in to one of the threads somehow, it could cause problems down the road or something.
    "I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain."
    --- Frank Herbert, Dune - Bene Gesserit Litany Against Fear

    I wonder if someone hosted something on imageflock and hotlinked it here. In any case, I've always thought Randis was pretty dangerous.

    That has happened to me before, when I was on a totally legit site with no chance of having harmful content. It only happens on Chrome, I think it's some kind of glitch, though it certainly does pop up more on shady websites.

    I remember looking it up awhile ago and while I forget the explained cause, I know it didn't have to do with the site having harmful content.
