    I'm getting it on all threads which cxcanh posted on. I did not get this when he first posted the pictures so I suspect something has changed on the server he uses to store pictures.

    I haven't seen that. I just tried a couple of cxcanh's threads and didn't get it on any of them. I'm on a Mac.

    I'm on Windows XP and tried it with Chrome, IE and Firefox. No warning on IE or Firefox. If I turn the phishing and Malware protection off in Chrome it doesn't display a warning. I have tried turning it on in Firefox and IE but will.

    His images are stored on that site. The easiest solution is for users to host images on OI instead of a third-party server. That said, images do not, and cannot, contain viruses. If you don't click on any links or images on sites external to OI, you'll be fine.
