Thread: Mod My I Ads...Fake AV Attacks?

    Default Mod My I Ads...Fake AV Attacks?
    I've had this happen hit or miss ever since the new format of the site was intrduced a while back. I get fake Antivirus Attacks probably 4-5 times a week when visiting MMI. Norton 360 catches them every time, but it has happened more and more lately.
    There is no virus on my computer that would just randomly pop it up and it only happens when I visit MMI and only when the page first opens. My question is.... would there be a maliciuos Ad on the side that loads from time to time trying to run and active X.

    This is a work computer so there are NO sites visited that are bad (porn lol) to get anything and no downloads or torrents either.
    I have a MBA at home and theres never been an attack on Mac OS just My windows CPU at work.

    Anyone have the same issue?

    I'm not aware of one. Also don't have a windows box. If you can tell us specifically which ad it is we'll get rid of it.

    To report a problem ad please refer to this post:
