Anyone else getting a malware warning from Google Chrome when trying to access the "NRA blames media, music and more for culture of violence" thread?

$1:

Somebody put an unsafe link in there?

I can access it too, but I had the same with a certain page on the fuck thread not too long ago. Any other page was fine, just not that one.

There must be a link on the page to Internet Movie Firearms Database (IMFDB.org). It a site for info on guns in movies, TV, and video. I just went directly to that site to check it out, and got a malware warning from Firefox. That's what Chrome is picking up on the CKA thread, I think.

Here's Googles diagnostic page for IMFDB.org.

http://www.google.com/safebrowsing/diag ... 6845&hl=en

Sometimes what happens is there's an ad on the linked site with malware attached. The site can appear clean one moment, and dirty when the ad cycles through.

This one at IMFDB though, seems to link to something called RLTK.us. I wonder if that might be Real Tech. Apparently there's malware that spoofs Real Tech.

Personally I suspect it's an infected popup ad on IMFDB.

Thanks for the responses.

These warnings when they pop up always sound so dire and may be crying wolf. But I don't click through them.
