Not sure why, but my ESET keeps blocking links (gives me the blocked URL popup) when I enter nearly any thread. Theres a couple that have popped up, but I wasn't able to write them down. I'll just list the ones I was able to see, and keep updating the thread if I see more. Is there any reason these links are showing up in various threads?

Blocked URLs:

$$$$$$$$$$$$$$/fifa
$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$/qwertyui
$$$$$$$$$$$$$$/deals


UPDATE:

More popped up:

ehgbz.co.cc/wattt

My first thought was signature files but those links seem weird. Is it possible you already have a virus on your machine?

I'm 100% shocked that books still exist in today's day and age. I thought they'd be out by now. They make up like 1% of today's entertainment and unless you're 60 or older, stray away from books and start emersing yourself with real entertainment.

No, I run weekly scans and I only get the popups when I enter threads on CAG. Doesn't happen on every thread, but maybe 1 out of every 5 I view. Also, it typically happens in the Video Game Deals section, haven't really noticed it in other parts of the forums. It's been happening for at least 3 days.

I tried all those links myself in a sandboxed google chrome, and they all redirect to a blank image on postimage.org
