Anyone else being repeatedly asked to save a file called seg.js from ib.adnxs.com?
I've run a virus scan and it was clean, and this is ONLY happening on mumsnet.
No way I'm downloading anything I didn't directly click on by the way.

I googled it and it said something about malware....

Trigglesx Wed 14-Aug-13 22:56:49

chat, AIBU, and SNs are mainly what I've been on tonight. Can't remember what pages it popped up on.

I've moved from laptop to Ipad and the messages and dodgy ads have stopped.

I just got it on this thread.
Who knew Christmas could be dangerous?!

Weight loss man has just reappeared on a weight loss thread I just clicked on.

Maybe it's the cake?!?
Will get the 9 to 5ers to help out.

I've been getting it, too. Not noticed a specific topic or add. I don't click on the ads.

I keep getting a message saying my laptop has blocked a file from downloading.

I was getting this at work this afternoon and we'resupposed to have super strength fire walls. Also on IE and on a variety of threads.

Not getting it now on an android phone

I clicked on that Christmas thread that Team Edward linked to, and didn't get it popping up on that one. It seems to be random....

East sale and boden are the ads that are on the screen when It comes up for me

Just came up for me on active convos. I hovered over the the bar (which looks like a normal attatchment open/save/cancel prompt) and it came up with a Mumsnet address with some kind of connection to a Toyota test drive thing.

Doesn't now though and scared to click cancel!

I'm getting it too even though I am viewing mn on my phone. in a variety of topics.

lagoonhaze Thu 15-Aug-13 00:59:49

ImperialBlether Thu 15-Aug-13 01:19:04

I've pasted a screenshot on the section called Have You Seen This? If you want me to email it to you instead, let me know.

I'm getting it too! On AIBU and Threads I'm On.

You bastards, fix it, I can't afford a new laptop....

ourlittlestreet Thu 15-Aug-13 01:37:06

Is it zombies? Or some sad little weirdo hiding behind their laptop?be or the site who shall not be named because their thread was deleted?

Mynewmoniker Thu 15-Aug-13 01:49:30

BluddyMoFo Thu 15-Aug-13 01:59:18

.I came for a sneaky lurk tonight for the first time in aaaaages and havent even posted yet I have had this popping up all night in every category.

SaggyOldClothCatPuss Thu 15-Aug-13 02:08:57

Me! I'm getting it on Internet Explorer. It's damned annoying! confused

YoniBottsBumgina Thu 15-Aug-13 12:28:11

Are you all using IE? Heathens grin download a decent browser!

When MNHQ say which ads are you looking at, they mean which ads are displaying on the page when it's appearing. You don't have to click on them or even be scrolled up to where they are. If they are on the page they may be causing it.

My hone keeps trying to download something but I just get a blank screen saying that windows can download this file.

Hmm. Oh dear. We'll bring this to the attention of some grown-ups and try to come back ASAP
