Malware?

I clicked the TT managers thread just now and a security message popped up on my computer.

It says that the site contains content from a certain webng.com site, which has malware.

Can any mods check this out please? Thanks.

Re: Malware?

I reported this through to the team, they said they would look into it. I haven't had an update in the last few days, I will send an email to chase it up for you...

Re: Malware?

Google chrome just gave me it's malware warning:

I was attempting to go to pg 7 of the "John Tomic allegedly arrested..." thread on GM.
http://www.menstennisforums.com/show...2#post15026442

I didn't proceed, but went back to the MTF main page, and then re-entered that thread and it was fine, I didn't get the warning again. so I think it's not anything permanently on that page (like an image someone posted) but one of the ads (I guess it wasn't there the second time I visited the thread).

EDIT: I'm getting it all the time now. main GM page, First page of Dolgo/Haase match thread... can't use the site at all.
It could be nothing, but I've never gotten it before while using MTF.

but I couldn't take it anymore and put adblock on my laptop. Both for this problem and the other one (horizontal ads).

I use Safari at work (which doesn't show me any malware alerts -- but who cares? there are I.T. guys there whose job it is to worry about that ). If I use my old computer with Chrome (currently w/out adblock), that's the only way I'll see any of it again.

I'm sorry that it happened in the first place.
