I got a message this morning that Google Chrome had blocked this site because of Malware. I have strong anti-malware software on my machine so I over rode the block and came here anyway. I just wanted to let you guys know. Here's the detail page from Google Chrome:

I've noticed that on a few forums that I visit. I don't know what caused it, but they'll figure it out and fix it.

I don't know if this is a problem at my end only, or a problem with the 3FC site. However, for the past two days, whenever I go to do something on this site (reply to a post, read a post, etc.), I'm constantly being automatically redirected to a website with the address "", which seems to be some sort of advertising website. Am I the only one having this problem?

the past 2 days i have been told by my virus software protector that this website contains dangerous pages that can cause malware or something like that.. and that website you listed was on the list of dangerous pages on here..

Reported to tech.

Yes, I get sent to that website too Tuscany.

I have a question. I tried to go to 3fc through my main laptop, and it said the website ahead contains malware! Has anyone else come across this?

Posting from my phone at the moment. Can take a picture if it would help. Not sure what to do.

Mine says the same thing while using google chrome. I'm on internet explorer and it's not saying anything. However I HATE internet explorere. Wonder if I should just click "proceed at your own risk".

That's what I did... Not dead yet. -fingers crossed- :lol:

There's a post about it in the "Announcements" forum, so they are at least aware.

06-17-2013, 01:58 AM
Yeah - the same message happened on both of my computers (one Mac and one PC).

06-17-2013, 02:54 AM
Happened to me too. Came here anyways. I'm sure they'll figure it out and my computer is checked often.

06-17-2013, 08:14 AM
Yes, this has been reported and being looked at. It may happen that when google did a check, they traversed some ad banners and found something that way.

Should be resolved as of yesterday -- please let me know if you see it again :)
