Anyone keep getting a virus warning when looking at your first thread of the day?

Recommended Posts

When I get on everyday for the first time I keep getting this virus warning?  I am running a MacBook and was curious.

 

 

Thanks

Oh, it's really bad, Matt. @BowhunterNJ

It's the same toxic add with a chain of redirects.  The redirects are randomized.  Here are some screen shots from this AM a few minutes ago.

The Flash player one creates an in-browser dialog that looks like a system dialog, which it is not.  This is pretty good social engineering.  But it's the same URL doing the redirects.  The only thing that will stop this is an ad blocker.  That's why I never see it on my iMac Pro.

Your ad network really needs to step up their game.  This is ridiculous.
