    Same here with Chrome. It seems specific to this particular member, as viewing the OPs profile does not give the warning.

    The offending site is not Casinomeister either, but an unrelated site. It suggests that this member has "funkified" their profile in a way that causes Chrome to trigger this warning.

    Seeing how would require overriding the warning and visiting that profile in Chrome, or trying in a different browser and seeing if that too, or the anti virus, also triggers.

    Diagnosis complete.


    Bingo T linked a birthday card from this site flagged by Chrome into booo73's profile comments back in 2012, and this is what seems to be triggering the Chrome alert. Other birthday cards were from photobucket, and Chrome does not seem to mind that. IE doesn't give a toss, neither does my firewall nor anti virus. The image appears to be an animated GIF, and Chrome seems to be overly sensitive in giving such alerts. It's normally my anti virus that is overly sensitive in warning me about dangerous websites, so it was a bit of a surprise it didn't go off for booo73's profile.

    Of course, it could be that Bingo T is actually working for the NSA, and has infected all Casinomeister members' machines with the "Kitty Glitter" virus, and all our computers will turn into soft, warm, balls of fur on All Hallows Eve.:)

    An NSA guy walks into a bar and orders a drink. While making the drink the bartender says "Hey, I got a new joke for you."

    The NSA guy says "I already heard it." :p

    It's probably nothing to do with the image you posted, more likely that the site itself has been used to host malware. If you copied the picture and uploaded it direct, rather than linked it, Chrome probably wouldn't issue the warning. Even using photobucket instead doesn't seem to be a problem.
