Had the same problem with my laptop about 2 - 3 weeks ago, right after I loaded up the full-bore continuous-scanning Malware Bytes, it gave a warning that this site ( any of the sub-forums ) had a Trojan. No issues if I visited kiteforum on a Mac Ipad or my Android phone, so I turned off the continuous-scanning feature of Malware Bytes, problem solved, no more warning when perusing kiteforum.

I think the problem is with Malware Bytes, as to what that problem is exactly, not my area of expertise.

U can contact malware bytes, tell them they have registered a false positive ( well hopefully! Lol)

It's possible someone reported it and they just added it to their list which is sad, because it makes them lazy a$$hiles like Fb insta and other site.. they dont even bother checking... just believe anything told to them until told otherwise... they only care about $ if they trust people to do their work.. they save $ . Lowlifes

Use a mac (osx updated)and a simple firewall, keep your browser updated ( Firefox/brave browser).. a good security start.

Does malwarebytes give any more info? Like which file exactly on this forum is being blocked? Some *.js file?
