While browsing the form today, i had a window pop up about my machine being virused.
My guess is one of the served adds is infected. Someone should check this out.

It’s more than one. I’ve gotten rid of a lot of ads popping up because I’ve altered the hosts file in Windows. The problem with the BS “your machine is infected“ or the “FBI scam“ is that they continue to change servers and IP addresses.

I miss being on an OC48 where I could do a DDOS attack and put them off-line while I contacted their hosts or provider .

Hey guys,

The next time you get this pop up can you try to grab its URL and post it here? We'll send it to our ad opts team to get blocked. I've sent the above example to our ad opts team.

Thank you,

I have sent that to the techs.
Also, moving forward, the next time you encounter this, can you provide us with all the following info?

- How are you accessing this site? Desktop View, Mobile View, or Enhanced Mobile View?
- What browser/device are you using?
- What operating system and version are you on?
- Full URL of the pop-up
- Screenshots of the pop-up

This will help the techs narrow down the issue.
