In an effort to get rid of the malware that some people are seeing on this site, I am trying to put together some screenshots of actual malware, alerts from malware software or anything that will help pinpoint the problems.
One issue is that when I create threads that include videos from one of our video hosts, Brightcove, many people are complaining of malware within the videos.
I personally have never seen malware within the videos I post and there are many of you who also do not see it - perhaps because you have AdBlock/Malwarebytes/etc running. But, there are many of you who have complained that there is, in fact, malware in the videos I post.
This site, to the best of my knowledge, uses 2 different ad platforms. One is used in the Brightcove videos and the other is used on the rest of the site.
For the next 7 days, I'll not post videos from Brightcove to try to see if malware continues in the absence of those videos.
If you care to, please post any screenshots of any malware/adware/etc. in this post. I will be collecting all of them so that I can try to get rid of all malware on the UG.
