    Is BearInsider.com infecting my computer with malware?

    I have been using BearInsider for a good while now, and today I am using a Mac and GoogleChrome as my browser. Today is the first time I got this alert when trying to access a page. It looks like this, but I have pasted the exact text below. It is referencing specifically BI and "ourhonordefend".

    Any answers from BI would be great!

    That was because someone posted a picture that was hosted at that site in one of their posts
