It is one of those pop up virus scan things, it happened to me on the home page.

What do you mean? The ad looked like a popup virus scanner? Or just your virus protection popped up? What ad was being served?

It was some popup that looked like a virus scanner. Not sure what product it was pushing, I always close those things asap.

That is odd because popup ads should be disabled. I hate those things.

Does anyone know for sure that it actually tried to install a virus on your system? Or was it just one of those scare tactic ads?

Scare tactic pop up.

Ah. I have seen those. Yeah, even though we have popup ads disabled, they do actually show up every now and then. But it is rare. So it seems that it is not an actual virus then. Just a scare tactic ad that is popping up.

Also, I just ran a SiteAdvisor report and everything came out clean. You can check out the report here:

I run Safari on my Netbook which is protected by AVG, PC Mechanic AND Spyware Blaster.

I haven't seen any of this stuff either. Not that it isn't happening but from what it sounds like from all the different locations that have been reported, it's a specific ad.

If I run across it I'll make note of it and pass it along to the Mod who is on.

See my previous post. It seems it is just a scare tactic ad and not an actual virus. Nothing more.

Well I trust you guys too. So if anyone does actually get a virus/trojan/whatever installed on their system from this site, please let us know ASAP and let us know what ads were on the page.

But from what I can tell, there is no actual virus. Just a scare tactic popup ad that snuck in and looked like a virus. Probably one of those "Oh no, you haz a virus. Click here and you can haz free scan" ads.

I believe a mod hid it. I'll let them know things appear to be all clear.
