It comes from *malware domain*
my guess is someone has used a site to host files that Google doesn't like

Good spot

[edit] It's actually a linked image and comes from the signature of neo158

This is the link from his sig (the cpu-z image), which chrome also blocks. WARNING: http://valid.canardp....php?id=1817044
"Content from *malware domain*, a known malware distributor, has been inserted into this web page. Visiting this page now is very likely to infect your computer with malware."

However, despite that on this page http://safebrowsing....chrome&hl=en-GB Google says this site is not listed as suspicious and has not hosted malware in the past 90 days

Also, here is 35 scans of the URL by virus total, only Google list it as unsafe. https://www.virustot...d78b3/analysis/
