    In the above topic there are links to a site that has been hacked (candycornstudios.com) and a malicious frame added linking to a Russian malware site (unclesammm.com).
    Unfortunately I was browsing with internet explorer concurrently with firefox (testing a few things) and I got a windows defender pop up that altered me.

    Regards

    The very first post has the link. It is candycornstudios DOT com/ArtistAlley.

    They're not links. Just text that you can paste into a browser.

    Of course it is a link. What you mean to say is that it is not a hyperlink. Which meant you couldn't see it with a lazy scan of the topic.

    The point stands that if you follow the link in this topic you will get infected from a well known malware site, which has compromised the above website, so the topic should be removed in an effort to prevent fellow users from becoming infected.

    View the page source of candycornstudios DOT com (with NoScript or equivalent enabled) and you will see it.

    There are no links on that page. Partial urls, yes - but no links. It is not the general policy to edit or delete forum posts. Doubly so when it's a six year old topic.

    And I would ask you to please remain civil. You have no idea what I did (or didn't) do when I checked that topic.
