Caught this story on Wired about problems with virus-infected advertising banners.  It is something that always worries me.  Last time I can remember that we had a problem was probably a year ago, when I tried a new ad network and we immediately ran into a malware ad.  That network was dropped, but there is always a possibility for virus ads on any ad network.

If we run into it being a problem here, I will suspend ads until the ad network gets the issue fixed.  However, please, always keep your computer safe with a couple of things:

Keep your computer updated (Windows update, Linux, etc)
Keep your browser updated (IE, Firefox, etc)
Keep Flash updated
Keep Java updated
Never allow a website to install anything, unless you are completely sure it is safe.
Always use a good antivirus and keep it updated!

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
    • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
