Title: Google Chrome makes weird warnings about AGS forum links
Post by: Crimson Wizard on 24 Dec 2017, 02:16
Sorry, that is kind of weird, what started very recently when I click on some forum links in posts leading to old threads (from 2011 - 2012), Google Chrome shows that red danger screen, and sais that -
"www. shuugouteki. net" is a dangerous site that may install malicious software. I have no idea what this site even is, because link clearly is pointing to http://www.adventuregamestudio.co.uk/forums/***.

Going onto these threads step by step from the main forum page works well nevertheless.

What may this be?

Can you give an example thread? Also, what kinds of plugins do you use?

As suddenly as it started, it suddenly stopped :S. EDIT: and started again.
This is really random, sometimes it works well, and sometimes displays a warning.

Example thread was this: http://www.adventuregamestudio.co.uk/forums/index.php?topic=43383.0

Plugins I use are: Adblock Plus and FriGate.

I can confirm this for the very same link earlier today with Chrome on my smartphone.
Currently, it does not do that anymore.

Maybe there's a picture/link in one of the posts that is linking to such a site? Or an add crap (and thus only showing up ocasionaly)?
Just putting out possibilities, I haven't experienced it.
Maybe if next time you open one of those links that is displaying that warning, open the page source code and look if anything might be pointing there? (not sure if it'll help anything, but can't hurt...)

That's exactly what it is. subspark is hosting his forum avatar and signature on a site called shuugouteki dot net, which seems to be malicious (probably abandoned and taken over by some malware people).

I've set subspark's avatar to blank, so this hopefully should go away.
