    For the most part, you have to open the thread in order to delete the offending posts. When you open the thread, it causes the malware code to get executed, which is why it was important to take it down quickly. There are a few places in the VBulletin interface where you can get visibility to posts in a thread without the code being launched, like through the "recent posts" view under a particular user but that assumes you know who posted the offending image or whatever.

    If you know a better way, I'm all ears.

    Move the thread to a hidden subforum, then delete it directly from the database. Or delete it while your browser is set to not show pictures.

    @highlander what if some ahole posts another one of those malware infected pics in another active thread; will the only option be to delete the thread?

    That's quite unfortunate.

    Same here.

    It happened/started getting the warnings after the poster who posted after YWIR made a post (which was probably her last in that thread).

    I can remember Look Alive_Sunshine thanking someone which appeared on iSpy and when I tried to view the thread I got the warning.

    Whodunit?

    You hem me in -- behind and before;
    you have laid your hand upon me.
    Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,
    too lofty for me to attain.

    The thread is fully restored now. @Nicodemus was kind enough to suggest a way to remove the malware infected image which allowed me to undelete and restore the entire thread.

    As an aside, malware infected images within spoiler tags still gives you the warning. You don't have to click on the spoiler tag. I'm not sure if the code within the image executes even if you don't click on the tag, but generally when you open a thread page that has an infected image, the code executes.

    ^

    Who was it?

    you should add a new rule: any idiot who posts a pic/link infected with malware gets banned for a month.

    Malware is obviously more of a threat than trolling.
