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.

Also getting it - yesterday and today, AIBU and Chat. Using Internet Explorer. Will try to work out which ad is displaying/grab a screenshot next time it pops up.

Just happened again and it is definitely the East 50% off sale ad on Active Conversations for me. It says Do you want to open or save seg.js from ib.adnxs.com? and then gives me open, save and cancel boxes. I have screen shot it so let me know if you want me to email it to you, and what email address to use.

I've just had it pop up again on the Katie Price thread!

Got it again. Same message, same ad but on a thread this time. The last 3 times I have seen it have all been the East advert. Prior to that I have no idea as wasn't paying attention.

Thanks for your help on this everyone.
We've put a block on East ads, can you report back and let me know if you're still getting the download message?

Nothing yesterday or today, Colette. Looks like you fixed it. thanks
