Mods and Site Owners,

Every time I go onto the site I am getting tons of unsolicited pop up ads. Its only happening when I am on LG.

If this is something you are aware of, please fix it. This is seriously annoying and many of the pop up ads are showing "vulnerable" here at my employer.

Please help fix this. Like I said, its ONLY happening on LG.

Hmmm. Not seeing them. Can you let me know if you can click on the AdChoices button what network/ad it is. Or if it doesn't have that if it says Clicksor on it?

I keep getting a pop-up (recently) that is *.lakersground.net

Then I get messages that my security setting blocked a site (there are several) one is chosefashion.comC2/Generic-A
another was 99shopbuy.comC2/Generic-A and others.

Don't know if that helps any or if it the same issue anth2000 is experiencing. Started happening for me over last several days, both at work and home. Using Explorer as browser in both cases.

I am getting VULNERABLE links. Just on this site so your site is infected. Our IT department said it was as well.

I am getting PersonalLoans.com, MacKeeper, etc. All coming up with warnings. I am not clicking on anything.

Been a member of this site for 16 years so this is a first.

I am on a Mac and using Safari browser if that helps.

We just added a new ad network into the mix a few days ago, so I'm going to assume it's related to that. I'll pause it and let's see if the issues go away.

Okay, just turned that network off. It may take a couple hours to clear out. Let me know if you see it then. It could just be a setting I need to turn on that I haven't so the more info you have, the better. Thanks.
