    Default Malware in Advert on T-S

    If you see this advert in on T-S, DO NOT click on it,

    If you do click on it, you will load a Malware program that will take over your Internet Browser. By take over I mean you cannot view any other web sites and when you close and reopen your browser it will ONLY open the malware site.
    Visit this URL on Microsoft.com to see what your browser screen will look like once the Malware loads and to find out how to get rid of it if using Microsoft Edge:

    Thanks Charles. It looks like an AdChoices advert. They've been a problem for several years now.

    This must be the one Norton stopped for me yesterday, suddenly here on the site music started playing then the Norton Pop-Up saying it had found something and corrected it.

    May become a problem? come to think of it, all the English words suddenly changed to Chinese looking characters as well as the music.

    On a related note, don't think this ad is entirely appropriate for a "family" site:

    This on the laptop with virus checker and malware protection bang up to date.

    And, without going into too much detail, it's not a product that I would have any need to search for or similar on line to generate an entry in a cookie.

    If/when you find one of these, the best thing to do is to copy the link that
    the ad is pointing to. Usually right click, copy and send it in an email in text
    mode to [email protected] and we will forward it to the ad vendors. You can
    remove the "htt" in your message to take its teeth out.

    Regards,
    Rick
