Thread: Don't click on any Banner Ads and you shouldn't get a virus

  1. Default Don't click on any Banner Ads and you shouldn't get a virus

    I wanted everyone to see this but evertime I tried coming here my anti virus would pop up telling me this site is dangerous. Anyone else getting this?

    I was wondering the same thing. I haven't posted here (or even logged in) since forever but today when I wanted to read up on the forums, for the first time ever I got a notice from Avast that MMA News' forums section (not the home page) was flagged as a site for malicious software. I was here a few days ago before today and didn't get this warning, though...so...I dunno.

    Supe posted the diagnostic report he got from google chrome on the site. I believe some of the links on the banner ads have been infected with malware by a third party.

    So does that mean we are at risk by being on the page with the infected banner ad or only if you click the link?

    Yeah I clicked the link to this site in my favourites bar and FireFox said this site has been flagged as an attack site.
