    Default Three days in a row, AVG has indicated threats on MMI
    For three days, my AVG antivirus program, on two different computers, has been indicating threats present on MMI's homepage when I first come to the site. A picture will be attached to this message.

    What the heck is going on?

    Internet explorer, that's what's going on. LOL. Try firefox or google chrome and see what happens. Not all active x scripts are bad.

    Okay...but I figured that the specific ones being indicated by AVG must have been added to their threat database for them to be flagged.

    That's odd. I never had this problem when I was in Bootcamp. But, I am using FireFox. DON'T USE INTERNET EXPLORER!! It sucks!

    It seems like a false positive.

    I wonder if it's detecting the skipwords I've noticed lately.

    If you guys are having this issue, it might be best to add an exception to that script, but I'm against that idea. Let's see what can Cody or Kyle do.

    whoever gets this would you mind providing the "imp history" from the cookie log (found at http://ad.yieldmanager.com/cookie) after you see the error?

    WOT (Web of Trust) Firefox add-on finds the link untrustworthy.

    I've been noticing lately that upon first arriving at modmyi, the page hangs for up to a minute, and the status bar shows I'm waiting for something from solidduck.ru. Figuring that anything coming from Russia on the web is potentially bad news, I searched and found the following:

    Malekal's forum • http://solidduck.ru/home/49ad2996aec215f5acb9fe29110e6e64.ph : Remontées d'infection : fichiers infectieux, liens infectieux etc.

    It seems that Trend Micro classifies solidduck as a disease vector.

    Cody, is one of your advertisers throwing in something nasty into the mix?
