Every time I get on SodaHead I get a message that tells me SodaHead is an unsafe site and contains stuff that will compromise my computer or personal information and it is not a recommended site?

    Sodahead IS unsafe. I've received at least 10 death threats in the past 9 months. Take your computer's advice - walk away. Just walk away.

    There are many hate filled liberals here. Some of them know enough about computer programming to be dangerous. When they feel disgraced they attack opposing points of view from a hiding place.

    My computer has been attacked directly a few times here. I stayed away for awhile because of this. Addictions are hard to break so I came back;-} I reported it but never heard back from SH.

    I avoid areas where the attacks crept from.

    Maybe it is maybe it isn't but that's why you buy an antivirus program like Northon or McAfee that will help detect and remove all that crap =P

    Some times it is the comment pictures that are being used, so where they are from that site is unsafe, not SH.

    I believe it has to do with the adware.

    Sodahead is unsafe cause there are threats that people make towards each other and there are different virus like malware,trojans and someone could hack on to your system.

    The site is unsafe. Many Trojans have tried hacking my computer while on sodahead. My antivirus picks them up, so i stay. They don't have a secure network, so that makes us vulnerable.

    The ad-rotation software used by the site isn't exactly all that strict when it comes to checking advertisers for malware or other possible threats. Also, some images can have malware encoded into them. The latter is rare, but possible. The ad-rotation software is likely the culprit.

    I heard someone say that it's due to the massive amount of pictures people post from all over the internet. Sounds like a plausible theory to me.

    Your info is saved for further references and sometime when someone is angry enough at your opinion, they can implant a virus in your computer. Many nasty people use this site.

    Sodahead doesn't allow for the sort of coding necessary to make that happen to be embedded into any of their posts. Their ad-rotation software is likely to blame.

    CA says it's because the owner of the site hides their identity.

    I've learned, the hard way, that some of the links do lead to viruses. I was actually downloading one that my daughter managed to catch in time! I never knew!

    Because the links here are unsafe. Some links used here are links from sites that had viruses and malwares. Photo links to be exact. When you add a photo in your answer, some photos searched from the net are unsafe.

    I don't know... I mostly use Google Chrome and I get a Malware Warning sometimes when I am on here. Not always, but sometimes. I still haven't figured out why. I scan everyday and have never gotten a virus, just the warning

    Seems like it has been happening more and more since February 2nd. Odd coincidence.....

    Actually, I think it might be because some of the embedded pictures are from sites that are not safe because people aren't looking at the site they grab an image from. The software you use may see the link in a post and recognize that it is not a safe site and throw the warning.

    Maybe a virus and if you use internet explorer...like myself..I really gotta get rid of it
