Well I just logged into Facebook... And I get a screamer from Opera...
"Malware warning... Opera strongly discourages visiting this page..." With a big AVG logo underneath the message...

It only happens on http://www.facebook.com/?ref=logo it doesn't seem to pop up anywhere else?
Reckon Opera is just getting paranoid?

I would probably get rid of AVG.

I'm using opera and haven't receive message like that.

Opera can't detect malware . Its avg thats causing your problem

I don't use AVG or any other anti virus for that matter, seems like a waste of time for me. But opera is giving me that malware message at that specific url on Facebook, nowhere else.

Edit: And I'm not getting it anymore.... WTF?

Lol. No idea.

Opera is just a browser I don't see how it can display malware message unless perhaps you have malware on your pc?

maybe take a pic next time for us to see?

Antivirus might safe your life one day

Firefox can detect unsafe pages - there's no reason that Opera hasn't also built that functionality into their browser...

As to why Facebook - who knows? But they haven't had the best of records for privacy lately....

I know Facebook is harmful in what it does to your head and makes you an antisocial sh*t but I didn't know it fracks up your puter too.

True . I forgotten. Opera does detect unsafe pages but for it to say malware seems a bit odd to me.

Tried FF doesn't say anything?

And I know Chrome doesn't because I've tried it. Maybe Opera just doesn't like Facebook - and who can really blame them?? :)

that was 6 weeks ago, but prob is related...

probably the malware warning was because of this

and Opera has a multipart protection if it is enabled - malware, phishing etc

Dont have a facebook account! To many muppets out there liable to use any information you think is secure and private. The internet is the least secure place I can think of open to anyone especially social network and forums.

Actually not true I do have a facebook account just not in my real name date of birth location etc. I planted some stuff on it and proved my point how insecure it was when I found information posted as private shared to open public view by another facebook member.

To many people willing to put out to much on the internet, I learned things about people I know that they have never told me.
