I never clicked an AD, it happened to me when I was scrolling down on a thread with the center wheel on my mouse.

I use linux, so Im reasonably okay.. but I went to page 2 of a thread day before yesterday and I got my warning page concerning it being a threat.. asked if I wanted to ignore. It was weird as Ive never had that happen every before anywhere else.

I got some WIN Defrag Virus last night while browsing only this site, all of a sudden it popped up and shut my computer down, spent most of the night getting rid of it.

I've tested over 1,200 distinct ads though our own automated test, and so far no results.
However, it happened to me once on a Breaking Alternative News thread, and while I didn't get the specific ad, I did identify the ad network tag that caused the redirect. I alerted the network and disabled their tag until it's repaired. They may have a compromised server somewhere on their network, especially if not specific ads can be found that are causing the problem.
