    I too am getting this, would pm the appropriate mod, but I don't know who the D&D mods are and I'm too scared to check. :P

    I got it on the main page first, then in D&D.

    This typically happens when an avatar is being hosted on a site, and said site gets flagged for malware content. The specifics of that side of it can be anything.

    Just to let people know what's going on. Now the hunt begins to find out whose avatar it is!

    I've done a search of all avatars and all discussion and comment bodies for that address and turned up nothing. Its possible that the "zoidberg.wz.cz" address is the final destination after one or more redirects, and the actual content in the avatar or discussion/comment is different. What would have really helped is if one of you guys could have downloaded a copy of the page's HTML when this was happening (using cURL or wget or something). As it stands, with the information provided, I have no way to find the offending content in a reasonable amount of time.

    Someone contacted @Jacobkosh in the D&D chat thread shortly after this thread was made, when they discovered what avatar it was this time and he handled it.

    How much of a problem would it be to just relocate all avatars to host off our own forum database?

    I get something very similar occasionally on the mobile site. "Warning: something's not right here! Chrome is unable to verify that the URL for this site is correct. You cannot proceed because the website operator has requested heightened security for this domain."

    This happens sometimes when loading My Bookmarks, which doesn't show avatars, so I'm not sure if it is the same or a different issue
