    MALWARE THREAT in "Type Whatever if" thread

    Whenever I click the link in this "General Discussion" thread titled:
    .

    Type whatever if ! Would be nice if,
    .
    My Malware virus threat blockers turn on and block access to rest of thread due to a malware attempt to access my computer.
    This thread should be deleted and or blocked.
    It did not do this at the point I posted a reply. But, somewhere after my post, someone added something into their post that attempts to attack others.

    I'm not sure, but it might be BobbinT's signature.

    Well that's good, that means your security software is doing its job and it means someone needs to have their signature deleted.

    Hey, I was just guessing, since it for some reason, appears on Firefox but not on Edge. Something is a little fishy, though idk what. Btw I'm not trying to say he's doing anything intentionally.

    Edit: Looks like xivsigs.net 404s and xivpads.com just has a placeholder page. I'd bet something fishy is going on with xivpads.com.

    Edge might not even be reading the relevant script, I wouldn't take it to mean that it's putting you at risk.

    I suspect it may be bobbinT, whose sig is some domain name website. Giving benefit of the doubt and assuming the situation was unintentional, so this isn't meant to be a name-shame.
