Hey. I'm not trolling. I get this warning whenever I open a topic. Avast shows the warning(mostly) when I open the "Michael Famous" thread. I don't know if I am the one who is facing this... Do you also get this warning, guys?

As long as you don't open any "Saints Row" related topics, you should be safe from infection.

I opened a thread yesterday and got the same warning. I was wondering what was going on, it was this thread, but no warnings show up for me now. It was probably somebody using an image in their signature or avatar that's linked from a site that could contain or link to malware.

This reminds me of a popup I received around the time I joined:

"This Connection is Untrusted. You have asked Firefox to connect securely to gtaforums.com but we can't confirm that your connection is secure. Normally, when you try to connect securely, sites will present trusted identification to prove that you are going to the right place. However, this site's identity can't be verified. If you usually connect to this site without problems, this error could mean that someone is trying to impersonate the site, and you shouldn't continue."

Someone must have posted an url that is marked as harmful by Avast. It's a false positive. There's no reason to worry.
