I think the Imageshack virus is sentient, and it sent Image Shack and 4kdust to infect us all.
Imageshack uses .us not .comThey own the url imageshack .com, but it auto redirects to .us
*.us is the US's country code top-level domain. You must have a US presence to use it. *.com is one of the original TLDs, and it still more popular because it is more familiar.
/shrug. I'll wait for the Wowhead team to respond saying they're alright. Hopefully soon too, I kinda dislike Photobucket.
I've had no issues with posting Imageshack links since this whole thing started.Not sure if Wowhead is filtering or not.
Imageshack has managed to make matter worse. Now they demand all 3rd referrer sites to verify/register or w/e it is, in order to load pictures hosted by them.It just make imageshack looks more evil than ever and I guess this ban will be very unlikely to be lifted.
Why would other image hosts be any safer? Any ad-supported website is subject to this risk. What resources are available to webmasters to police their ad suppliers for malware? Is there something like an anti-virus for websites that can load all possible ads and check them before serving them to visitors?
Imageshack is terrible. Use imgur or abload.de.
serves people right for still using imageshack in 2011
