    Well, considering that URL comes from clicking any of these ad's on the website...and I consider all, and I quote, "ALL" ad's on any website a potential virus/trojan/malware/ect. This could easily be true without knowledge of the website administrator. So, maybe it is, but that does not effect me as I never click on ads, no matter the location.

    So, for everyone safety, take these precautions; as a student in Computer Science, I suggest never click on an ad. If you find something interesting, watch the ad for identifying names or subjects and search for it in a safe manner.

    This is my opinion on the subject matter and I can not fully support that my claims are true.

    So you detected malware? Why the heck are you using Internet Explorer?! Firefox automaticly blocks all that off.

    Hmm. That is very odd. If this is the case, then its not this site. Something is worming itself through your system, because I haven't been hit with anything after being on this site for months.

    OP I have never been hit by malware on this site either and I have always used firefox. Currently using firefox 3 with adblock plus.

    I am gonna have to agree with the person I quoted. It seems you already had an infection.

    He probably has a rootkit. This site is free of malicious software.

    If you can provide a screen shot of the ads on the page when this occurs please send it to ben@mmorpg.com and I will take care of it immediately.

     

    UPDATE:  I retrieved the .swf from gameads directly and scanned it locally using Avast and it came up clean.  Unfortuntely this probably means you've got problems locally on your machine.
