    Does anyone know what is with the malicious software warning popping up in Safari for the site? I am using Firefox right now, because when I tried to open the site in Safari a google warning popped up telling me the site contains malware, with some details about trojans and other bugaboos present inside the site. So I did the logical head in the sand thing and opened it in firefox, since if I don't get a warning I assume the problem goes away. Like not looking at the monster under the bed. Has anyone else experienced this, do the mods know if there is anything to worry about? Thanks

    I've only had a malware warning once, and that was because of a picture linked to a bad site that someone posted in a thread. It blocked the picture and that was that. I've never seen any problem with TPF itself.

    More than likely it was a server issue, not the site itself - and it's appeared to have self-resolved. A few folks have reported seeing this earlier today, but it seems to be working fine now.

    If anyone continues to see this message, please report it here. Thanks!

    This issue has been fixed and is a problem with a plugin for vBulletin.
