    Initially I closed the browser and it seemed to do the trick but it's doing it again, although it seems to be a blank file name this time. Like before though it's repeatedly trying to download a file with the warning "This file appears malicious." Guess I will take a break from PAL until this gets sorted out, last thing I want is my computer getting fucked up.

    Strange, we haven't done anything different on the site or made any recent changes. If you guys haver additional details please post them up here. I am going to get with Gydian now and make sure this gets taken care of immediately. Thanks for posting this.

    I haven't gotten this yet myself either. Here is what we heard back from the hosting company:

    Hello,

    I've checked pokeraffiliatelistings.com in Chrome, and have been unable to
    duplicate any issue. I receive no prompt to download. I've also checked "view
    source" on the page loaded, and see not references to any .exe files at all.

    It is possible this is the result of an already compromised workstation. It is
    fairly common for members of online communities to share infection, which
    would explain why multiple users have it.

    To be sure, I have run your site through an external third-party scanner:


    Sucuri SiteCheck - Free Website Malware Scanner.
    php

    The results return clean, no indication of malware.
    If anyone is still getting this, please post here as well as what you are seeing so we can continue to investigate this further and determine if it is coming from a plugin. Thanks and apologies for this.

    Now things are getting weirder. I think this file has infected my computer even though I didn't download the file.

    I was working on sites and I am seeing advertisments that look similar to ads on YouTube videos but instead of on video it's on images.

    The ads are for onlinetrading.com mobile4free.com obv some ad network that has compromised my system.

    Hmmm, is anyone else having this problem. I'd like to isolate if this did come from a PAL plugin or this site. It does sound like one of those shitty ad network toolbar or pop-up viruses though.

    I should also state the problem seems to be isolated to Chrome for me, which is what I was using when it tried downloading the file.

    It does seem like some shitty ad network malware/virus but pretty sure this forum caused it.

    I have Malwarebytes which obv hasn't worked great - what's everyone else using?

    Seems I am not the only one with this problem.

    WordPress › Support » Unwanted Ads Suddently Overlaying My Images

    The problem seems to be browser-independent and spreading the spyware/adware via browser extensions.

    After disabling the Fast Save v1.1 extension in Chrome I am no longer seeing the ads.
