One of the advertisements is malicious (I cannot specify which at this moment).  Multiple of my users, when they connect to forumer, get a warning that their Java is out of date (which it is not) and then the ad PUSHES setup.exe to their download folder.  As soon as I get more information, I will share it.  We are discontinuing use until this is identified and corrected.

THIS IS A CRITICAL ISSUE!

Further information, IE warns of the malicious attack and blocks it, Chrome merrily brings down setup.exe.

Hello,

Thanks for the report. In order to pin this down quickly, I need a little more information.

Approximate location of the viewers who experience this (state, country), as well as the *exact* time this happened.

Thanks so much.

Having issues pasting a pic...

Any progress with this critical issue? This malware makes forumer non-functional for non-paying guests, and there is no way anyone would pay for a service that introduces itself with malware. The seizure inducing advertisements are bad enough.

Sorry, we are trying to find it. I am in the East as well, but haven't seen it today. As soon as we see it, we'll know where it's coming from, but we have to see it.
