Website Issue

Tried to log in from my Mac this morning and I got this warning:

"Danger: Malware Ahead!
Google Chrome has blocked access to this page on www.skyroadster.com.
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 Mac with malware.
Malware is malicious software that causes things like identity theft, financial loss, and permanent file deletion"

Could just be that netseer go put on the naughty boy list for no reason, or could be a real issue.

One of the Moderators may want to send a note to the host company.

These things are usually items that are a part of the google advertising.

The administrators can block the individual ad that is causing the problem if they can isolate it.

You must be using the Google Chrome browser and I believe this is a security feature being added to the browser. Malware is basically anything that might get installed on your laptop or PC which tracks information and sends this information back. It sounds like some of the advertisers on this site are using some third party sites to distribute the ads, which are black-flagged by Google as known sources for Malware.

Keep in mind, these are not viruses, so anti-virus software won't detect it, especially if you are using a MAC which most likely won't have anti-virus software installed anyway. It is most likely false-positives being detected, but on a site like this where there are a lot of advertisers, it is more common.
