It probably has something to do with the new ads on the forum.
I did inform google that it's not malicious at all tho.

For now i have disabled the ads,so the warning should go away.

Too bad,as the ads helps to pay for the hosting.

It will take a few days to clear the alerts @ the antivirus makers.
There really is nothing strange going on on this forum.

The ads which seemed to cause this are not used anymore.

You can help to clear this problem by reporting this site as not malicious to the virusscanner.
Most of them can sent reports to the makers :)

Edit: somehow the plugin we use to upload images to postimg.org is flagged by some antivirus makers.
I cannot change that,as we will lose a lot of pictures in the topics.
(Unless i manually edit every post that uses it...)

Yes, i know...

The problem seems to be the picture upload plugin we use to save a lot of space on the server.
I cannot remove that,as that will require me to edit all topics by hand to get the pictures working again.

Best thing to do is report the site as not malicious to the antivirus makers.

I've taken the forum down, to be able to sort this out.

There were some strange things going on, so i cleaned everything up.

So, it should be good to go from now on  :thumbsup:
