You have overly sensitive anti-virus software, then... I can access that site via that link with no trouble... Nothing bad happened to my computer, no malware... I guess it's because it's a foreign based site. Maybe some virus-protection software will mistake foreign links for viruses because they can't process the language, so it thinks something's wrong?
Nope. Many sites get injected with malware or ads that install many kinds of harmful software. For example, Java had to implement an emergency update because hackers started installing keyloggers without the owner's permissions on many sites that people tend to consider safe. All you need is for an advertisement to be hijacked and you're in trouble. I'd rather have an alert that lets me watch out and be careful than just having a weak ineffective Antivirus/Firewall.
Well, that's all true, I guess. But, all I mean is that I, personally, was able to access the site with no problem, my anti-virus software didn't go nuts on me, and I didn't get any virus or malware. I wasn't hacked, I'm certain everything is fine. You're right, it is better to be safe than sorry, but as far as I've seen, nothing's wrong with the site. Most of the viruses I have gotten, I've gotten from things I downloaded knowingly from questionable sources, and I have gotten rid of them all myself. I was able to delete a Trojan virus from my own computer with no loss of data and no trouble. You can usually trust your antivirus software, but ultimately, it's up to you to click and download everything that ends up on your computer (with the exception of hackers, but they'd need your IP address and your computer to be hooked up to the internet in order to hack you...) All I meant was that I could get to the site without any problems. Perhaps the site has malware, but I was not attacked by any harmful virus, not even a pop-up ad. If people want to go to that site, that's their choice. If the thought of malware possibly infecting their computer is a deterrent, then so be it. But malware and viruses can attack you from anywhere on the internet. It was nice of them to warn others that there might be harmful content on that site, but I didn't experience any, and was just suggesting it might be a false alert. Actually, the most harmful viruses I've ever gotten were triggered by ads here on DeviantArt. But I still come here and enjoy myself. Viruses aren't something to be afraid of if you know how to deal with them. Antivirus software can help protect you, but it isn't failsafe and it can make mistakes. Viruses are always evolving, hackers are always learning how to bypass security. The best thing you can do is be smart, prepare for the worst, and be careful.
I'm sorry if I seemed like I was advising people to throw caution out the door and click whatever they please, regardless of warnings. You're absolutely correct. It's better to be vigilant and be warned of possible danger, even if there isn't any, than to be unaware and unprotected when you really need it. I was just saying that maybe it was a false alarm. I've had that many times before with my old anti-virus software; it was saying everything was a virus, even sites I knew were safe. But the same software also allowed a Trojan to infect my computer. All I meant was that internet security is a tricky thing, with lots of grey area. It's the owner's responsibility to take care of their computer and do the best they can to protect it. Antivirus is a good tool, but not something to rely on as a guaranteed protection. Like auto-correct, it can help or hurt you; you have to make sure that you're getting what you want in the end, in all situations. That's all I really meant. But thank you for looking out for me and the others out there.
