When I visit this SF question, Chrome warns me of malware because of several (perfectly innocent) images from imgurl.Filetac.com a user embedded in it:

I assume this is sorted now that it's no longer possible to hotlink external images in SF questions, but to let you know in case this is somehow relevant.

  • It is still possible to hotlink external images, you just have to write the Markdown yourself rather than using the button for it.

  • Odd, I don't receive that error on v6.0.472.55 for Windows. What are you security settings at?

  • @gWaldo I think that's because @splattne replaced them (see his answer below)

I'm note sure about answers, but profiles allow adding external images on all stack-exchange sites.. oh & here too ==>


Just for the record: I've replaced the images on Joseph Kern's answer with imgur.com URLs.

I think - even if it's not justified - no SF page should ever trigger a browser's malware warning.

  • Yup, I agree with that.
