Anyone else getting this message from their virus scans when on the boards?

Just about every time I've gone to my home page today on the boards, I get a message from my virus scan about aborting sso.anbtr.com. I thought it might have something to do with Google Chrome but when I switched to Firefox I started getting the same message again and the only site I went to was here.

I did google it and it seems like it's not something dangerous - just annoying - but I was wondering if it was just me getting it.

I'm not getting anything. I doubt that it's anything on the Passporter site, but you may have something on your own PC. It's always a good idea to run a full virus scan on your machine if you get any of these warnings.

Yes. Three times now, I've had AVG (the full, paid version, not the free one) throw a warning at me.

It reads:
Threat secured

We've safely aborted connection on sso.anbtr.com because it was infected with URL:Mal.

More threats may be lurking!
I did a bit of googling, and it's an adware redirect. I would suspect it's our own computers which are infected, except that this forum is literally the ONLY place it triggers.

Do the PP boards have third-party advertisements? (I wouldn't know, I run AdBlock software.) If so, then likely one of those is responsible for this.

The reported domain [anbtr.com] is owned by godaddy.com ... and ICANN has actually listed it as Renew, Transfer, and Update Prohibited. Which means it has been a very, VERY naughty URL.

https://www.virustotal.com/#/domain/xsso.ssso.anbtr.com

https://www.icann.org/resources/page...enewProhibited
