    Hi, since yesterday I get randomly appearing warnings from my antivirus software kaspersky during browsing this site. It says there is a phishing address around. I included the address for security reasons in a spoiler, but I havent been able to locate the source.

    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    Maybe my antivirus is just f*cking with me, but maybe not. I thought it is a good idea to let everyone know.

    Well it seems that a gbatemp member put the address on his/her signature on purpose. [​IMG]

    It's just an error page.

    It may be setting off your AV because of the CGI folder (which is some rarely-publicly-used-anymore programming gateway thing).

    I still get the warning for example on this thread: http://gbatemp.net/t261184-golden-sun-dark...meplay-trailers PAGE 1 and PAGE 3

    EDIT: I think I have located the source. It seems to be the gbatemp user SignZ. I get on every thread he posted a warning from my antivirus.

    are you still getting this problem?

    SignZ's signature is this:
    Code:
    [url="http://shoptemp.com/?ref=2325"][img]http://shoptemp.com/images/st.gif[/img][/url][b][color="#008000"][i]Thou shalt not ignore God'z SignZ[/i][/color][/b]
    [img]http://gamenow.asia/card/SignZ.png[/img]
    i don't see any problem with it...

    edit: the gamenow.asia picture is faulty. I'll remove it.

    Thanks Costello, now I am not getting these warnings anymore. There was indeed a problem with the picture.

    I see, so it was my signature... Well, sorry that I didn't remove my Menudo gamercard link while gamenow.asia is down, but who should/could know that some AV doesn't like it.

    But, well, sorry for the inconvenience(?)..

    No problem. I think this topic can now be closed.
