While visiting SFF, is anyone being redirected to a page saying that flash has to be installed? The external page then automatically downloads setup.exe onto their PC?

 

I only use Google Adsense, McBookie and Betfair adverts on SFF. It is definitely not McBookie, because that is only a static image file. They are all trusted providers. I suspect that it's Google that is providing the dodgy advert. If anyone else confirms they are experiencing this, I might turn off adverts in the short term, or narrow down by turning them off one by one.

My google home page has gone a bit funny too! Seems to open up anew tab now when I click on page links?

Good.

 

I am surprised that google adsense have allowed an advert like this to sneak through. Hopefully they have caught it and have disabled it.

I'm not sure, think it may have actually been when I was doing work stuff. But exactly what you describe above happened and had me bamboozled for a while!

 

Clearly nothing to do will all the dodgy websites I visit........lol
