Malware on macrumors?

I was just browsing the post your last purchase thread and chrome seems to be blocking page 27

I didn't want to proceed just in case but here's what I got shown:

Just thought I'd post it here in case it's a real problem.

A user must have posted in there with a URL that leads to a malicious site. We'll have to review the thread for it.

Same here actually - a quick forum search for "**********" shows up 2 threads, the purchase thread and "is your wallpaper the same on all devices"

plus this thread now I would imagine.

Seems a little weird overall but I thought I'd put it on here nonetheless.
