Default Google chrome keeps blocking pages

I don't think this would be your fault but for some reason certain topics have links to 'heresy online' and this means that the pages block themselves for malicious software.
Any ideas where these links might be because they seem a bit rando as half of them are on topics I was already viewing a couple of days ago.

edit: it is those little demon things in people siggys that are doing it.

Go to your profile and the "Look and Layout" tab under Modify Profile. Check the box that says "Don't show users' signatures." See if that helps?

I've noticed this as well, although it may also be links & linked pictures from HO, ergo I reported it to FT via PM with a screen shot, it may be a possibility that HO has been hacked.

There is indeed a possibility that Heresy Online was hacked and had malicious content placed on their server.

What this means for us is that anything that links to Heresy Online (like those creature images and certain topics that have images hosted over there) are being treated as suspicious.

If your surfing Tau Online, then you are perfectly safe because the types of threats that may be affecting HO are so-called "Drive-by virus downloaders" which only really become effective on web pages, not linked images.

If one pops up on Tau Online, please ignore it and continue what you were doing/reading. And if they're bugging you that much, you could surf with another browser like Firefox or even IE because the popup window only appears in Google Chrome.
