Welll when I tried to go on TheSmartOne's profile to start a conversation Google Chrome told me it was infected by malware. -.-

It might be an ad or an image on the page. It happens often.
EDIT: It is an image. I have ads disabled for faster browsing and I still get that error.

It's just the gif she posted in her blog (since her blog is displayed in her profile):
sunyshore *.* com/scrap/dentomaggyowhoowhoo.gif

(a * so you don't get a virus warning here)

If she reuploads it to something like imgur, then the virus warning will disappear.

The answer becomes simple: it's not malware on PC. It's a filter warning you that we've got content (an image in this case) from a suspect site.

It's simply the way Chrome handles suspect content. If you find such a page, simply PM the member or a staff member and ask them to remove the image tag.
