I don't know if this is the right place to post this, but a forum has just started up that I belong to, and we are having some problems with trojans. Here is a copy of what's happening:
Okay, Chris Ash and I have been talking about trying to get a different ad service (forumer.com, who hosts FH, offers a few different ad services but unless we pay, we can't be ad-free.)
For a while we thought about Google Ads which is the safest (no viruses) but ended up not going that route because google pulls keywords from the text of the forum as ads --- since it's a ferret forum, things like anatomical body parts and poop and pee are all common subjects, and one can guess what google might pull as ads then...
But just now I've gotten two trojans from an ad through the service we're using right now, and a week or so ago Ash was having the same issue.
Anyone have any ideas or suggestions?
