Hi, uhm im getting a warning with Google chrome when i try to open my guestbook:

Warning: Something's Not Right Here!

www.zedge.net contains content from friends18.com, a site known to distribute malware. Your computer might catch a virus if you visit this site.
Google has found malicious software may be installed onto your computer if you proceed. If you've visited this site in the past or you trust this site, it's possible that it has just recently been compromised by a hacker. You should not proceed, and perhaps try again tomorrow or go somewhere else.
We have already notified friends18.com that we found malware on the site. For more about the problems found on friends18.com, visit the Google Safe Browsing diagnostic page.

uhm what should i do in a situation like this ? i didn't want to take a risk and open my GB..

Try firefox and see whether the warning still shows up or not. You can also install sandboxie and run google chrome in sandboxed mode which will be safer and it won't affect your system.

This is not a zedge site problem. you get this warning because someone post a image in your guestbook from friends18.com
that image a malware detected item. better solution is delete that post then you won't get this warning again!
Note: friends18.com this site is full of virus. so be careful and don't post that site images!

Here's an answer by Admin "bigbluechief" to a similar issue in another forum. This should clear things out -

Quote of user: bigbluechief

I've checked the user's profile and Google Chrome is warning you because somebody posted a link to an image on a website that Google Chrome believe might host malware. There is however nothing wrong with the images.

As a general rule; if you use a browser (e.g. Chrome) that warns you about potential security problems you're yourself responsible for deciding if you want to ignore the warning or go back.


We however appreciate it if Zedgers inform us when they encounter such security warnings - we'll then check and see if it is correct or not.
