Warning - virus in ads.

AVG Anti-Virus just reported a virus in one of the ads. It blocked and closed the window before I could write down what the virus was. something like "netspoit" or whatever. Anyway... someone who knows more about these things should make sure other members aren't getting a virus from the site.

I didnt catch the ad either, but AVG listed it as "Phoenix Exploit Kit (type 1112)"

I'll try refreshing a few times to see if it comes back and find out what ad it was.

Just happened. I clicked on "new posts", it loaded the first bit up until the ads, then AVG started crying bloody murder.

I didn't click on anything. I logged in and as the main forums page loaded, my computer flipped me the bird and Symantec threatened to kick me in the balls.

I think it's that little ad that floats across the screen. I tried to close it last week and accidentally clicked it (because it's moving). My computer started acting really weird after that (re routing my browser to advertisement pages constantly) and I ended up doing a restore to fix it. If it's what I think it is, it's someone abusing a pay-per-click agreement, buy loading malware onto other users’ computers that essentially makes them rack up ad clicks for the creator of the virus.

no idea which ad, but i've not been able to access the site using Chrome on my home computer since Friday.
It loads and the refreshes about 15 seconds later. As soon as it refreshes, igoogle opens instead.

Works just fine in IE still.

FYI, i've never clicked on a banner ad here.

I only click on vendor ads that I am specifically looking for and can't remember the address to. Meh.
