Malware False Positive Attack -

  • There is a bug with the post editor. Images pasted from other websites from your clipboard will automatically use the [img] tag instead of uploading a copy as an attachment. Please manually save the image, upload it to the site, and then insert it as a thumbnail instead if you experience this.

    The [img] should essentially never be used outside of chat. It does not save disk space on the server because we use an image proxy to protect your IP address and to ensure people do not rely on bad third party services like Imgur for image hosting. I hope to have a fix from XF soon.

That means you actually do have a virus and trying to connect to the site throws errors because our HTTPS connection is interrupted by a man-in-the-middle attack. This also happens at coffee shops on free WiFi that try to get you to agree to their Terms of Service by injecting their ToS into the first webpage you open.


Also, as JGOTI said, AVG is hostile to the community. Please select better software. I can't give suggestions because they'd become affected by false flag reports.

In other words, if we have this, we're now permanently barred from the site? There's no workaround? I can connect just fine on my laptop. Desktop, not happening.

For the record, I do not have AVG.

Huh. Tonight was the first time in quite a while that I could access the site through my laptop or desktop without a dozen Kaspersky alerts informing me about, and then blocking a link purported to be malware. Looks like they finally got the message that Kiwi Farms is not toxic.

I just got hit with a malware warning, and even after I told my computer to ignore it, the site looks like this on Chrome:

Is this just an AVG thing? I run AdNauseum in Opera but made an exception for this site so the bitcoin miner can work.

I've tried in Firefox to see if it will work without a white list and the site comes up with no issues. No malware alerts at all.
