malicious threat to computer from this site

When I log in to Stromtrooper my Kaspersky Internet Security program throws up a notice of a malicious virus threat from this site. Kaspersky identifies the source of the threat coming from ads-dot-verticleslope-dot-com. (then that address is followed by a long string of characters).

Can you give us a screenshot of the alert by chance?

it seems that every time I change pages on this site, the warning flashes.

the screenshot can not be merely pasted here, so I tried attaching a Doc file containing it. I got this error message: Your file of 497.5 KB bytes exceeds the forum's limit of 19.5 KB for this filetype.

any other place to send the Doc file?

Why not call Kaspersky tech support?

They'll most likely just say the site is infected with something and close the ticket.

Odds on it's an ad that's triggering it, not the site as a whole.

Beware of a possible malicious Trojan program on this site. I am being warned by my anti virus software. This happens 2 or 3 times a year
