    Seriously, this was amazing! Google, you just lost reputation :wtf:
    But it is not tech, it is just a post inside a thread, don't get scared!

    Same with me. What's happening?
    Happens when I click on the news with Office 365.

    I have had this pop up in other places as well today not just TPU so it is just a generic Chrome issue I would assume.

    IE 10 is more secure anyway.

    Google has flagged the CPU-Z validation site as malware (valid.canardpc.com).

    Since people have CPU-Z validations in their signatures, showing here on the forums, it triggers the malware alert.

    I removed all signatures that contained such images and also disabled new ones to be created for that site.
     
    Crap Daddy and sneekypeet say thanks.
