Looks interesting but the URL looks, well, suspicious. Has anyone been to this site? Don't know why, but it makes my malware-radar go off.

On edit. Some of the sites on webhostapp apparently are associated with malware. Proceed with caution if one visits this URL.

Cheers

That's where Cabido hosts his Board Game map mod.

It's perfectly safe, just a free web host. Other hosts on the domain may be unsafe but no-one's asking you to visit those are they [:D]

If your antivirus triggers on the domain only it should be replaced with something less paranoid [;)]

But I agree it does look a bit "shady". On a general basis one should be wary of visiting any unknown URL, especially one with "numbers" in them, or *anything* from .ch, .ru, .su, ro...

Use of the word "stuff" is another indicator. It is interesting how the malware peddlers tend to out themselves like the clowns who write phishing emails.

Too paranoid? Don't know about that. The internet is full of scams, malware, spyware, and who-knows-what.

BTW, I think you meant .cn vice .ch ... the Swiss are usually okay [:D]

Thanks for the reply!

Cheers

No the Swiss are the worst, man - the worst! [:D]
