    well i think i heard one time that gbatemp was detected to have viruses becuase of someone's signature.
    I guess that happened again.

    Whereabouts on the site was the message showing up? Was it the homepage or were you going into a particular thread? Some more details would help in hunting the problem down.

    wow no one is listening to me, i clicked on my favorites tab that has the homepage of gbatemp.net

    i did not use or see any topics i went straight to gbatemp.net homepage, that is where google gave me the message of a security breach

    idk i didnt checkback for quite some time since the error, so idk if no one else is reporting issues on gbatemp then i guess i was seeing things, but costello what happened over at filetrip? i wonder though if that same bug somehow got in onto gbatemp and once you solved the bug on filetrip it got rid of the one on gbatemp

    yeah nothing serious.
    if you get the problem again on gbatemp or filetrip (filetrip is flagged now so we have to wait a couple days for it to be unflagged) just send me a PM, i'll close the thread now
