Malware Ads--Unique to the SDMB?

Of course not.

But Yahoo lacks the resources to protect their website visitors and members! Surely you can’t expect them to prevent the problems at their website the way we at SDMB expect you to prevent them here.

I still don’t get why ad providers can’t just host the ad on their own website, after submission, and disallow loading anything from an external server. Sure, they could do server-side shenanigans to make it where clicking on the ad loaded a different page for some people, but it shouldn’t be possible to be infected just from loading the ad.

Oh, sure. Suck up to the Board. :stuck_out_tongue:

Um, money?
