Malware on PC...?

Is this just Google Chrome being stupid? Or has this happened to anyone else?

It only happens when I go on the thread "Easter Eggs" in the B2/W2 forum....

JayD November 11th, 2012 11:44 AM

Nope, it's happening to me too.
I'm not taking any chances and just not go on that thread lol.
(I don't even have BW2 so it doesn't really affect me^^)

There's no danger in going to the threads, it's just because people have posted images from sites that activate Chrome's malware warning, and it's something you'll run into from time to time if you use Google Chrome. It doesn't happen that often, so it shouldn't really be that much of a problem, but there's no danger in going to the threads, just as long as you don't go to the websites where the images are hosted.

As a Chrome user, I'm receiving this message too. I really wanted to see the latest post there and now I can't, not to mention I visit the Black 2 and White 2 forum frequently.

I read that it posted pictures that triggered the malware warning or something.

There is something wrong with Pokejungle and a user who is in the thread you want to read is hotlinking an image from Pokejungle. It'll clear itself up overtime as this was an issue with Pokebeach images from MRAS' signature last week.

Found the user that triggered the Notice and sent him a PM asking him to remove the image. Though it he doesn't I can't really do anymore than that as its a browser issue not an actual viral/malicious threat. We can only wait for Pokejungle to sort out the issue themselves.

I got the same message last night, but I already knew about the malware warning, since I had seen it on other forums across the years.

Lord Varion November 11th, 2012 12:34 PM

I got the message too.
But it let me proceed at my own free will, so it can't be that bad. Normally when there's malware google chrome won't allow me to enter sites at all.

Captain Fabio November 11th, 2012 12:38 PM

As said above, it is normally due to someone posting a picture from a site that could have malware or some form of virus floating around, but Chrome is extra sensitive when it comes to these things.

Best thing to do is inform the boards moderator or a higher member of staff and they can get the problem resolved as quickly as possible!

Thank you for letting us know, when you do, as I am sure they are annoying.

The image must have been removed because I'm not seeing this error any longer (I too am a Chrome user) on the mentioned thread above. (although the last post was 90 minutes ago)

I get a similar error when I visit certain threads like in the trading corner for example but instead of pokejungle it says pokemon marriland.

Rukario November 11th, 2012 8:17 PM

it was someone hot-linking a image from pokejungle - in this case, pokemontrainer_samuel. I've removed the image link and that warning should, for that thread, go away.

The same warning appears for the newest page of ''Pokémon Lightning Yellow'' in Games Showcase.

All times are UTC -8. The time now is 3:22 AM.
