I was going to visit the first page in the thread "Truly great moments in sport" (page 4 in Off Topic) and I got this warning of chrome:



It says it's got malware from hardlyproductive dot com and that if you access it it is likely that your computer will get infected

this and that

Back when I used to participate in illegal music file sharing, I had about 37 malware programs that infested my computer, which I had to flush out periodically (I think I got them from Morpheus or KaZAA, or something like that).

But as I recall they were only a minor nuisance.

ahh kazaa, I remember when I downloaded albums song by song... and how long it took

I wonder how they instert it in a page, in a forum, where there are only posts by no strange users. And why is it in that lost thread? Maybe it's a wrong warning. I don't know

Maybe the malware is just in one of the links on that page. Suspect

At the time, I had a program called Ad-Aware that eliminated malware quickly and thoroughly.

It worked good at the time, but that was 10 years ago: http://www.lavasoft.com/
