.. When I tried to go into a thread titled 'Game of Fabulous' in the Spam/Testing board. I went into the thread anyways, as I thought Google was just screwed up.. Though nothing has happened in the last fifteen-twenty-five minutes, should I be worried?

I would say it's not the thread itself, but one of the websites an image is hosted on might had been flagged as hosting malware. I'm not sure if Chrome will warn users going to an external site with an image hotlinked from that malicious one or not, but if so then that could be the case here. I'll head up to my PC and see if Firefox also says the same.

Correct.  I don't use Chrome, I don't even have it installed, but if anyone can tell me which image host is causing this error, I'll remove the offending post and that should clear it up.

Deleted, thanks!  Let me know if anything else causes an error like this in Chrome.
