You won't actually get a virus from an image file. Your antivirus has just flagged the site that the image is being hosted on as malicious. Nothing will actually come of it though.

I've gone ahead and PM'd the user who's avy is causing the issue with an alternate link, and webby will likely take down the image if it's not dealt with by the time he sees it, just so there's no confusion about what the warning means.

I believe that's malware... and I've gotten it too. I was just about to PM Webby about it.

Yeah, kept getting it too, just ignored it since it wasn't a spammer or anything, just an image. Found the user, but didn't think much of it for some reason. Laughing
