I just got a trojan virus warning when logging on the main ATS homepage.
One of the ads?

It is quite probably one of the ads, it crops up every few months on one of the ad serving networks (non-ATS servers outside ATS control). It's good to have a virus scanner these days.

If you suspect that there is a virus thread via an ad PLEASE report it via the Complaint feature ASAP with as much information as possible so that the ad can be removed from the ad network.

Also make sure that the source of the problem is indeed something on the ATS network, because time and again people cry wolf about viruses on ATS, when it's actually a problem on their own PC and not an ATS problem. In other words, make sure your own PC is clean before you start pointing fingers.

Thank you.

4 years of membership here on ATS without a single virus or even a virus warning. I'm betting it's your PC.

I will do!
I had actually just finished a scan an hour before, so I know I was clean.
I had also not logged on anywhere else yet.
I will send the info in the complaint form.
Thanks
