    Default Malicious URL alerts being created for emoticons on old posts

    In this thread http://www.candlepowerforums.com/vb/...-C808M-Charger avast is giving an alert for URL:Mal (Malicious URL) on an emoticon in the signature line of post 19. According to the alert, this image is being pulled from the cpfmarketplace.com domain. I have added a screenshot of the alert.

    It actually wasn't un-safe. It is an old (very old!) google remnant that was erroneously reported. CPFMarketPlace.com has been scanned several times and it is perfectly safe. But there is no point in having old links around that might make people think it is not...

    I am also getting a similar warning from the welcome banner (that I am seeing on the top of the page as my postcount is less than 3).
    The specific .gif I am getting a warning from is http://www.cpfmarketplace.com/mp/ima...es/welcome.gif
