    View Thanks = "The Site Ahead Contains Malware" (Chrome)

    Hi,

    I get this warning from Chrome every time I view my new thanked posts under Notifications. Viewing new quotes doesn't do this, only the thanks. Any ideas what could be going on?

    Thanks!

    The site ahead contains malware

    Attackers currently on gfx.glittergraphicsnow.com might attempt to install dangerous programs on your computer that steal or delete your information (for example, photos, passwords, messages, and credit cards).

    (Under DETAILS, I can ignore the warning and everything works as it should.)

    Does the page have any pictures or ads? If you are referring to your "likes" I don't believe there are any and it sounds like you might have something going on in the background. I would suggest a scan to be sure.

    It happens both at work and at home, and I figure the odds of both PCs having a problem that causes this are pretty low. FireFox doesn't give the warning, only Chrome. It looks to me like the "thanked posts" page uses images from gfx.glittergraphicsnow.com and Chrome has that URL blacklisted for some reason.
