Malware

When I try to go into the '.223 won't chamber' thread in the handloading forum I get a message from Chrome saying there is Malware from fluidlight . com there and my computer will be infected.

Actually, if you google that site, you will see that there is a page that goes to what the message actually says: "This site may harm your computer" notification - Search Help

So it appears that there may be something there, but google doesn't know what it actually is. It is merely warning you. What is on the thread you received the warning from, is a picture that is hosted at that site. It is from the very first post of the thread.

Is there actually some type of malware there? Very possible. Yet I would hazard a guess that it isn't the picture involved in the thread, else more people would be reporting this.

I am getting the same thing from the same thread, but not other threads.

McAfee doesn't seem to have a problem with it, but Google Chrome does not like it at all.

For reference, as Al noted, the offending object is a photo in the OP showing the cases that wouldn't chamber. The pictures are hosted on fluidlight.
