Hey guys,

Some of you might have noticed this nasty message when viewing the front page.

http://www.fileize.com/files/4005a2aa/9d6/error.png
I've brought it to the stickpage backend team and they are working on it. Apparently its an old rogue Ad company issue. Usually this happens when an outdated ad company allows in a bad advertisement, or a bad advertisement slips through the cracks.

For now, they've sent in a request and are working diligently on removing the error. They did run an error check and it seems the pages are clean atm.

'
Of the 74 pages we tested on the site over the past 90 days, 0 page resulted in malicious software being downloaded and installed without user consent. The last time Google visited this site was on 2012-12-30, and suspicious content was never found on this site within the past 90 days.
Yeah great, zero pages are infected
'

To be extra cautious, just go ahead and visit straight to the forums for now.

Thanks!~

Oh crap that means i need to make the forums my open page then before I open up Google Chrome again.
DA is my homepage but Stickpage is my startup page.

*Changes google settings right away*
Thank you Stone :)

Heh. The malware block stopped for me now. Guess it's safe.

Well, I see nothing wrong in the front page. Is the malware shit gone or is it just me?
