MOTM & malware warning

Thursday, 12 May 2011

When I click on the MOTM poll, I get a warning in my browser about the site containing malware. This is because the poll site puts adverts on the results page. Those adverts come from another website called servedbyadbutler. This site is known to contain bad stuff, hence the warning. However, since you are not visiting servedbyadbutler.com directly, you shouldn't be in any danger.

Also, don't actually click on the ads. In fact, you might want to hide them by using a browser extension to hide all ads which makes the web look a much nicer place.

The other option is to spend $10/month to upgrade the polls to hide the ads which we're not going to do so I'll look into another poll provider.
