    Ok from work it's easier for me to find the offending links because work just blocks them instead of the whole page.

    The OP is what is apparently causing the problem here, as there are two hotlinked screencaps from koolbirks dot com

    It's harder for me to tell which of the images is the problem in the musicals thread, but it's one or the other of the inlined poster images, not a sig.

    And now I join the club! Appear to be getting it on the forums in general, got the malware warning and the red crossed out https: bit, but with an added twist! My scroll bars are broken and I'm looking at the forums through a tiny window. Sup with this?

    Every other tab here displays fine, just the PA forums getting minimized. Halp?

    You want http instead of https. I just tried the latter and got a warning as well.

    Basically the browser is warning you the page isn't secure despite having the https prefix, which is for secure http connections.

    I got a malware alert off of forums.penny-arcade.com/discussion/50566/let-s-play-the-legends-of-zelda-wind-waker-x-2/p1. Don't know what it's about.

    The image in the OP is hosted on a known malware site. People should just stop fucking hotlinking. Imgur exists.
