The heart of the site is the forum area, including:
Got this alert a couple of minutes ago when I tried to click on "LAST 50" tab.
Maliciousness on ARRSE? Absurd!
Just got a malware warning, refreshed and I could get on the site as normal. Must be one of the ads.
Yesterday I periodically got a warning message that the site 'certificate' had expired and was asked to accept or refuse. I always refused & the page loaded correctly so I assumed it was something to do with one of the ads.
It can sometimes happen with img code links.
Thanks for the heads up. I found mention of this on two other forums this morning, but I can't find eqads in google's control panel where we can choose which networks can use us. I'm therefore a bit stumped. I will spend some time on the site this morning and try to get the same thing.
That sounds like an SSL certificate warning - the padlock that you get at the top of the page when you use online banking, email and so on. We have never used SSL connections, and you can't connect at all to the site on an https:// URL. So I'm really surprised to hear about that error. Can you take a screenshot the next time it happens? Or at least a note of the URL?
OK, so far it hasn't happened today.
Just had the malware warning on the self-taken photo page. egad again
I have scriptsafe running on chrome to prevent scripts automatically running on a page. Currently on this page (and all others i've been to on arrse today) its blocking hundreds of scripts being served by www.arrowpushengine.com. this is not normal behavior !
www.arrowpushengine.com is some sort of live chat engine that seems to be trying to execute xml scripts. something is wrong with this. after 1 minute on a page i'm blocking 1000 scripts
Could this be a function of the new chat with 130+ people logged onto it, according to the new button at the bottom of the page?
Yes i've just seen the new chat feature mentioned on another thread. it seems to be whats generating the scripts.
i get a bit ******* paranoid when stuff like this happens
If your paranoia needs feeding, you could worry whether arrowpushengine is a MI5 cover...

This does however sound quite extreme and thanks for flagging it up. For most people, most of the time, a chat package is not wanted. Having a constant data flow without even using it just seems wrong. I will therefore do some digging - I won't modify anything yet as I don't know if it's staying, but will look in to it.
