    @Andrew Waples In no way did I mean to infer you were the cause of the virus alert. So sorry..

    Some time ago my antivirus was triggered on Cantina too and I figured there must have been an embedded image from a suspicious source somewhere. Or something like that. I got a notification every time a particular thread appeared in the "featured" section on the main page, so it definitely was a matter of a specific thread.

    But I don't know, it might be something different in this case. I don't get anything when I click Andrew's profile.

    Brilliant movie, by the way. ;)

    It was a suspicious ad from another site because someone shared a picture from it - it triggered my Antivirus too. We had to find what it was and manually erase it.

    @Andrew Waples Have you or someone else shared a link - probably image link - in your profile?

    I have, but it's been a while. On other people's profile pages, but I had no idea they were malicious sites.

    Hmmm, I am not getting anything. In the previous case, it was enough to see the thread featured, and it will give you an alert.

    @Lock_S_Foils If this happens again, we'll consult @Viral Hide, because I am not getting anything.
