    I don't think so, the most of them are hosted at gbatemp.net or Photobucket.

    No problem. But I still don't see what it could be.

    My Chrome doesn't say anything about malware, but I probably don't have the latest version, so it's not really reliable.

    Got it; Multimania appears to be connected to Lycos, the problem image is the avatar of the user chetzboy (first post on the page).

    Firefox doesn't like it either, but just skips loading the image instead of throwing an error. You have load the image itself in the address bar to get a warning screen up.

    Probably for a mod to delete the offending image and stop malware alerts in Chrome.
