Warning!! about imagebam.com
Having you clicked on an imagebam link and magically been taken to a pdf.php page?

That page is trying to install a trojan on your system.

I would not click on any imagebam link unless you are fully protected and even then... fashionspot should ban imagebam links to avoid infecting users.

Oh man, that sucks! Thanks for the heads up. I'm on a Mac, so I'm not worried about myself, but I do upload loads of photos there for others!

Thank you for sharing this information with our members. It's very important to be aware of this.

Re; Banning ImageBam hosted images

That is not possible ... it's only one of 2 sites that will allow members to host nude and semi nude images ... which we do allow here and we need it for that purpose. Also, we would be unable to remove every imagbam hosted image in this forum ... there are thousands and thousands of them. We don't have enough volunteer manpower (moderators) to check every image, advise members who have imagebam hosted images posted, and to ask them to provide us with replacement photos hosted on another site and then .... for us to replace them all. We would need to do that ... not just delete these images, or all of our forums would be seriously disrupted and the archives would be severely depleted. Also, going forward, it would be impossible to monitor every image posted .... all it would take is one click on one of the many that we would miss ....

But we constantly remind members who are having any issues, to install a good virus protection app and keep it updated. And if you are not well protected, check the properties of any thumbnails and don't open the imagebam hosted images.

Thank you, MMA! I'm going to copy this to the "porn ads" thread ... if you have not already posted it there.

I've been using it regularly now & it's been working out fine... no long waits for multiple image uploads. I'm just praying that it doesn't go the way of imageshadow
