    For the past few days when I visit this site I have been getting a full page pop-up / redirect . Appears it is some kind of ransom ware that is trying to download.

    Running Firefox if it matters.

    ETA: Not happening on other sites and my virus scans have shown nothing so far that has actually downloaded to my pc.

    Same here. It messed up my explorer so I'm now on ff and it popped up on there. Until it's gone I'll only be on my phone.

    I do not get it. AdBlocker and Ghostery.

    This site is not a very secure site. Too many wannabe hackers are tampering with it because it's easy. Adblocker Plus and Privacy Badger will keep the spam stuff that's rampant on this site down. I haven't used Ghostery but have heard good things about it.

    I haven't seen it, but I use Ghostery.
