Trojan Virus

My anti virus software is picking up a Trojan virus running around this site. Beware of anything suspicious.

detected: Trojan program HEUR:Trojan.Script.Iframer

This trojan infiltrates your system and allows even more advertising pop-up windows to pop up. It may well be intentional to increase ad revenue.

On the plus side, if you have decent antivirus protection, the ads that are trying to carry the trojan into your system are being blocked. This has essentially removed ads for me. How's that working out for you, advertising masterminds?

Every time I try to load the site with Chrome on my iPad, I get directed to Twitter.

I'm accessing this site using Safari on my iPad.

Looks like ads via Microsoft Bing as service are being affected.

From an article posted on slashdot:

Microsoft is investigating claims that some Bing ads are redirecting users to malware

Security firm ThreatTrack Security Labs today spotted that certain Bing ads are linking to sites that infect users with malware. Those who click are redirected to a dynamic DNS service subdomain which in turns serves the Sirefef malware from 109(dot)236(dot)81(dot)176. Update: Microsoft is investigating, see statement below.
