    Is MDS filled with Viruses and Trojans?

    Whenever I'm browsing MDS, I find that I'm constantly getting Viruses and Trojans installed on my computer that my antivirus program is removing. This only happens when I'm using MDS and I don't have any other programs open on my computer. Anyone else getting this problem? I also accidentally tried to login to Myspace while reading an article and my Myspace account got phished.

    I've never had any issues and I'm on MDS for many hours everyday using a windows OS machine (I have a mac at home and as we all know they are far superior and immune to such evils as viruses and trojans).

    I can't be the only person experiencing this on MDS. There seems to be an unlimited amount of spyware virus attacks when I'm using MDS. How safe are the ads that you see posted on every page?

    I have McAfee at home and use Norton Antivirus at work. I have gotten virus attacks on both computers while using MDS. I get the notices that my antivirus programs have blocked a virus or trojan attack attempt.

    Funny that you should post this question.
    Just this morning I was informed that my computer here at work had the highest number of spyware hits.
    I surf MDS daily from work.  Sooooooooo.  Our IT Security guy had me run a spyware scan.  There were 67 hits and all were from MDS. 
    IT guy then brought me a report generated from my computer and someplace called ads.adbrite.com had hit my computer 2,558 times in a 24 hour span. I am almost 100% sure I have seen this ad here on MDS. 
    I really don't want to give up MDS at work but I may have to.  Can't have this spyware crap on my computer at work.  Bad enough to have it on home computer!!

    Thank you Onthedarkside for confirming what I have been experiencing. I think if everybody does a full system scan on their computer for viruses, they'll be surprised at the amount of attacks generated by MDS.

    Why don't Premium Members logout and use MDS without being signed in to get the ads that we're dealing with. I mean it will check to see if your antivirus program is working.

    Try using Firefox. I have no anti virus software (slows my comp down) but with Firefox I never have a problem.

    I hate condoms too.

    I browse this site "raw dog" and have never caught teh aids. Ask andrea though. I hear she caught throat aids, but I think that's just from her reckless sexual lifestyle more than anything.
    And affirmative action is a very nice term for racial discrimination against better-qualified white people in jobs, employment, promotions and scholarships, and college admittance.

    I stopped using my PC at work to go on MDS cuz of the same type of problem...  

    luckily I also have a mac in my office so I still get to come on here, but it's just more obvious I'm not working.. :(

    Would you recommend this site to your friends if you knew that it was filled with viruses? I am sharing my problem that I've dealt with and wanted to see if it can be fixed where it would be safe to use MDS.
