Hope that is a 'false positive' and not true! So far, my AVG has sent up no warning flags.. and it does check for malicious sites.

Other sites are also reporting the same thing

http://forums.hexus.net/general-discuss ... re-ad.html

Looks to be a Malware Ad that's been injected into mobo.org and other sites. Hopefully not too damaging, one of the mods should PM Doc, I don't think he keeps a close eye on things these days.

Avira hasn't said anything yet either. Do you remember what ad it is specifically? It's hard to see in your image.

there definitely was something before - it attempted to auto execute an .exe on some website.

didn't have much time to look into it, google returned a bunch of german-based websites discussing it.

Well, I can verify it's not the ad, I've had that ad twice now today with no issues. Probably something injected in between ads before it hit Motherboards.

Now Firefox is treating this site as "badware"
