I was browsing through the funny pictures and video forums and I clicked on a picture in one of the posts...

The picture took me to another website and my anti-virus software went absolutely crazy... my internet explorer froze and my anti-virus software kept popping up that bloodhound.exploit.196 has been blocked.

It was in my internet files... and the only other website I was on was TFS.

Picoodle is owned by the same person that owns this site, it wasn't picoodle. However, sometimes images are used as a means of infecting computers, so I'd have to assume it was the image, not Picoodle itself. It is possible that Picoodle's server has been hacked, but only el_tino would be able to find that out I think.

For some strange reason my Adobe tried to open itself up... and the file that was blocked was a PDF.

Tino owns Picoodle?
I didn't know that.

If your antivirus picked it up then there is no need to worry.
