I received an alarm from my antivirus saying this section of the forum is dangerous... this never happened before.
It's just something related to the Ads on this site or what?

Often people get these notifications when someone is wearing an avatar or signature with a dodgy host. It wouldn't be our adverts or the forum itself.

Turn that sh*t off. Nothing wrong with these forums. At least nothing that will harm your computer.

Yes. This very often happens when someone has an avatar that's hosted by a site that has been blacklisted for malware or other potential internet security threats. In the GTA V subforum, there is no downloadable material hosted (yet), so an avatar hosted by a blacklisted site would most likely be the cause. It has happened many times before and shouldn't pose any immediate threats.
