I really don't think the mods/admins care about viruses that come from ad's, since its those ad's that pay the bill.
Moderators and administrators use the same ATS to browse as everyone else, and they see (generally speaking) the same ads as everyone else. In other
words if they would allow malware and/or viruses to get through the system then they would be under the same risk as everyone else.
And I don't see how an "infected ad" would pay for any bills.
Keep in mind that the people that spread malware and all that junk are very sneaky and always thinking up new ways to infect our computers. It's a
constant battle to stay one step ahead of them.
Administration do care about that kind of stuff, that's why they specifically implemented a
just for that. Just because we don’t know what’s happing
behind the curtain, doesn’t mean they’re not doing anything.
In the end it's always a good idea to have software running that protects your PC. While ATS does its best to keep the scum out, other sites don't,
so you're always at risk whilst browsing the Internet. There are some great free packages around. Ask the right people the right questions and
you'll get the right software protection on your PC.
