Have You Gotten a Virus Warning lately?

New, 16 comments

I have received several emails from H&R readers that they have seen a virus warning while on this site. I've referred everyone to SB Nation support. Here are more details.

This is what the product team at SB Nation recommends if this happens to you. First, close your browser and don't click on anything. Then, follow this procedure:

Send as detailed a report as possible to support@sbnation.com and include screen shots of everything abnormal you have seen. In your email include answers to the following questions:


- What browser/OS are you using?
- What site were you on?
- What page were you on?
- When day did you first see this?
- How many times have you seen it since?
- Has it happened on any other sites? Which ones?
- Did you click on anything after it redirected you to the virus scan screen?

Also, the product team would like to do a "screen share" session with you if this has happened to you; in your email let them know a time when you would be available to have such a session with them. The product team here has been working on eradicating this problem, and you can help. Sorry about this, everyone. Multiple SBNation sites have been hit with this and they believe it has been in the ad code.

Thanks!
