Default Malware warning from OT thread

Just had this message pop up when I clicked on the Game Of Thrones thread in OT:

This happened to me the other day and it was really frustrating and happened on 3 out of every 4 web sites including AT.

I manually updated Windows 7, Chrome, Flash and Java ... eventually it stopped happening and I regained my sanity.

More likely it's an inline image. People keep using crappy image hosts.

In any case, I need to know the exact page (approximate post # if possible). There are 100+ pages in the GoT thread.

Edit: Got it. http://forums.anandtech.com/showpost...postcount=2578

It was page #26 (@ 100 posts/ page) and must have been somewhere between post #2585 and the most recent post...#2597. I know I read that thread within the past two days and did not get that warning. Also, I have never had that warning before, ever, with any other thread or webpage for that matter. Shortly after I posted the OP, I tried the thread again, and again received the same warning. But just now, I am able to access the page without any problems. So I don't know if someone edited out an image link that was causing the trouble, or if it was, in fact, a rogue add.

Edit Ahh, looks like you got it while I was typing my reply! Looks like I was off a few posts too in my estimate. Thanks.
