Earlier today you may have received a malware warning when visiting certain UPROXX posts — especially if you use Chrome as your browser — much like the one above. As I understand it, what essentially happened was this: Web advertising network NetSeer, a Google-owned entity that posts ads on many sites all over the web, was hacked. As a precaution, Google added NetSeer to its list of malware affected websites, causing Chrome and some other browsers to start blocking any sites that had netseer.com ad code embedded in them. As in the screengrab above, a message warned visitors who were using Chrome that the Web site they were visiting was a “known malware distributor.”
Bottom line: No malware was passed and things are back to normal. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
