    Default SS Forums sets of Malware with Google Chrome

    I get the following message from my Chrome browser when trying to send PM's:

    "Danger: Malware Ahead!

    Content from cm.netseer.com, a known malware distributor, has been inserted into this web page. Visiting this page now is very likely to infect your computer with malware.

    Just making the admin's aware,

    Hey Bruce,

    Although it might not make the owners of the Forum happy, I suggest you use the AdBlock application which is available for Google Chrome. It's likely an add confusing the browser.

    Yes, it's usually the embedded ads that cause this (at least on other forums I frequent).

    The malware was coming from NetSeer which is a third party network coming through DFP and is affecting a good chunk of the internet at the moment. Issue was resolved late yesterday afternoon and all networks (google, net shelter, etc) have blacklisted Netseer
