Introducing Discussionist: A new forum by the creators of DU

I am getting a Google alert for malware on the post on Norovirus

I can't even click the link on DU when the warning comes up, so can't paste the link here.

But I can post the link to the reply I made in the thread.

This is what the Google Chrome warning shows.

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

3. I don't get any warning when I open that in Chrome (or FireFox - my default browser).

I can't find any reference to erotixxxi.ru in the source code either. It seems unlikely that Google ads would be consistent in what post it serves a particular ad for (if some ad is causing the issue).

Perhaps it's time for an anti-virus and anti-malware scan...

4. I run one of each regularly - first time I've ever seen anything like that happen...will re-do it.

thanks!
