Malware

Yesterday when I pulled up this site on Google Chrome I got a Google Chrome warning saying that HR.com was attempting to load MALWARE on my computer. It identified it as um.eqads.com which is a known MALWARE distributor. Today its not doing it. Whats up with that? Nolan

It is a Google Ad issue that is coming from multiple networks. It's something that is affecting "hundreds of publishers" according to them some virus network trying to infect their publisher users and they keep changing the domain name/url of the ad. It is still on going battle for Google to resolve this for the past 2 weeks. We were aware of the warning most of our sites received yesterday. Google shut down vibrant and admeld’s networks for about 30 mins because of malware so it’s not only our network that is experiencing this.

Unfortunately this is out of our hands and all we can do is report these to Google as the come in.

Are you still experiencing this issue? We reported the error yesterday to Google Ads and should have been blocked since.

It not happening now; but it was literally every thread I looked at that day through hotrodders.com.
I was mostly in the tech section; and usually I read every thread thats new since 5pm the day before (in Tech and browse sporadically through the Lounge etc) .
