It's very unlikely that it's an actual virus/worm as LucasForums only serves ads from a few reputable servers, two of which are Google and UGO. Although the UGO ads are sometimes a bit lame and we strive to remove them (eg: the mosquito buzzing one), malicious code is a whole other ballpark.

Some anti-virus software blocks certain ads because they can interfere with your experience, such as the aforementioned mosquito ad which produces a loud buzzing sound as soon as you load the page. It could be that or a similar ad which was blocked to prevent you having to go through that annoyance.
