Internet attack on this site?

Tried to link to this thread from my email inbox message:
"http://www.alfaowner.com/Forum/rant-room/76090-parking-in-disabled-bays-new-post.html"
and Kaspersky Antivirus blocked a phishing attack.
"http://members.lycos.co.uk/trollman/banners/joey.gif"
Tried another link and that was ok, Has the forum been attacked or something my end.
Cheers

Re: Internet attack on this site?

I doubt it's an attack.

I'm guessing somebody attached a "signtaure" graphic that is hosted on an outside, dubious site, and that site has software that your anti-virus software doesn't like. Probably for good reason.

I should say add that lycos is a site that often gives anti-virus software the vapours. I'm not sure how deserved that reaction is, but when I saw the lycos bit of the message I wasn't surprised.

From the address given, I'd guess it's Mrs. Trolls signature (since I remember it having 'Joey' written across it)
