Phishing and Virus Warnings on the Chow Site

  • 2

I recently install Webroot antivirus program, about two months ago and just recently, last couple of days, it block this site with a warning about potentially dangerous issues concerning something called "http://images.boomtrain.com/580/http%......" It comes in several forms, but "Boomtrain" is in each one.

Does anyone know what this is?

  1. I got that too (yesterday), also using Webroot. It happened a couple of times, then stopped happening.

    1. Hey guys, thanks for the report. We work with Boomtrain and will make sure there are no security issues ASAP.
