  • #2

    My browser (chromium) also gave me a warning.

  • #3

    someone being cute i guess and trying to imbed something

    In all likelihood this is some sort of XSS hack that Google can't do anything but warn us about.

  • #5

    just submit a ticket to the "tech" guys.

  • #6

    so our tech guys can't really do anything about it except to remove that thread  ?

  • #7

    there should be a way to delete the post and ban the user (it cannt be unintentional to do something like that) deleating the whole thread is overkill 

  • #8

    According to Chrome, the issue is not chess.com but some random website forum, which indicates that chess.com is probably passing along waaay too much information from linked-to websites (thus tripping up antivirus), or it's an XSS (Cross-Site Scripting) hack and the web developers need to get their act together.
