Hi gang!

We've received reports that certain pages of this site are triggering certain anti-virus programs. So we know that Avast is generating virus alerts, but I cannot seem to replicate the issue as a BitDefender user. All I know is that the source of the issue seems to stem from a website known as HugeDomains, but we are in no way affiliated with this company.

If anyone has encountered a virus, malware, or related warning as a result of browsing the site please respond to this thread with any information that you might have available. If you can remember which pages triggered the alert, please link me to them; and if you can confirm whether or nor you were signed into or out of your account would help me track down the issue too.

Thanks for reading, and hope to get this issue squashed soon.

And as quickly as it materialised, the issue has now been resolved. Cheers to @Dark Drakan for tracking down the source. I had initially thought that perhaps I'd screwed something up in the backend somehow, but it turns out that it was down to a signature image that was hosted on a HugeDomains server was the cause of the issue.

The image has been removed and you should no longer receive the anti-virus trigger warnings.
