Greetings,

Don't know if the topic exists.

I've got an (false?) alert against a .gif on Tumblr...  hxxp://pixel.quantserve.com/pixel/p-19UtqE8ngoZbM.gif


Regards.

Hi Drooooom,

No false positive; quantserve is known for hosting malware.

Ah ok! damn  :o
It was just a simple Tumblr of a friend.

Thank you!

I've checked the URL at Virus Total. Almost all anti-virus doesn't label it as a malware.
