    I keep getting messages from my AntiVirus that says it's blocking malicious attacks while I'm surfing RJ. Is anyone else getting these messages? I'm not sure if the attacks are coming directly from RJ or if they are coming from the ads. It's happened a number of times over the last few days.

    I'm wondering if we need to alert the admins to take action.

    It's happened to me before, it's usually when someone posts a pic from a site known to distribute malware, well, that's what Chrome said.

    That's what I thought too, but I've had warnings from the main page too.

    Maybe your antivirus software has a virus. icon_razz.gif

    Maybe false positives from your anti-virus software? It's just easier to use Firefox and AdBlock extension. It's pretty common these days for malware to be delivered through ads.

    I thought about installing AdBlock. I didn't know if RJ gets credit for ads they display or just ones that get clicked on. I didn't want to screw them over with a free site, but if I keep getting these messages, I'll have to install it.

    I just got it again on the main page. It's the image below the "Spread the RJ Love" banner on the left column. It could be a false positive, but I'm not taking any chances.
