    im getting the attack site page on firefox when clicking the PPC COACH link under the first post of every thread...

    Code:
    Reported Attack Site!

    Attack sites try to install programs that steal private information, use your computer to attack others, or damage your system.
    
    Some attack sites intentionally distribute harmful software, but many are compromised without the knowledge or permission of their owners.

    It's an affiliate re-direct... not sure why it's showing up an attack. I just changed it let me know if you still get the same message.

    If you're getting that, it's your computer that is infected. It's a redirect from google to some chinese site that tries to install a bunch of crap on your computer. Get "hijack this", run a report and send me the log file and I'll help you find the adware or parasite ware that your anti virus can't see.

    I'm not really interested in infecting users computers. Not good business sense and wouldn't happen.

    Strange I am getting it to but I run a Mac with Safari which apparently is immune to this kind of thing?

    Is it an advert here or bug? It looks like a normal ad to me.

    Weird

    :confused:
