Icon13 Forbes site accidentally forces users to accept malware

http://www.extremetech.com/internet/...serves-malware

Yet another reason to keep up with anti-adware, ant-spyware, and privacy tools.

It's a pretty good noteworthy article.
Personally, I think the whole paradigm of advertising is flawed, but that's a sociological and philosophical point rather than technological.

Please read the article if you have the time.

Re: Forbes site accidentally forces users to accept malware

Yeh this was in the news recently. I once got linked to their site and was denied access because I had ad blocking in place. I decided I would rather not connect. At the time I didn't know about the issues but chuckled a bit when it started appearing in the news shortly afterwards.

On a completely unrelated note; we're gonna have to ask everyone on IDMf to stop using ad-block software. no reason at all. just stop. nothing nefarious.
