Teapearls thread, malware warning

by Drax » Feb 23rd, '13, 11:26

So, when I try to go to the teapearls thread, Chrome freaks out, goes to a warning page instead, and says something about qplog-dot-net and being a known distributor or malware and recommends that I don't precede. I've never seen a warning like that before... who posted what in that thread...??

I opened in IE, FF, and GC without receiving any warnings.

Regardless, I did remove the qplog image for the time being.

[EDIT] I did find warnings when googling for qplog dot net, so I will leave the image out.

Thanks for taking a look at it, Chip. I had never gotten a warning like that before, maybe I have some different security setting on or something...?

No BH. Nothing "mal" about your tea pearls!

Drax, although viewing the img image in question on TeaChat is not likely to cause you any problems, going on that site could.
