    I haven't investigated this thoroughly, but you should be warned that one of the banner ads in rotation appears to exploit a vulnerability in MSIE for Windows.

    It appears to take advantage of this:

    http://www.kb.cert.org/vuls/id/323070

    I only noticed this because Unsanity's "Paranoid Android" notified me of an attempted access to a suspicious-looking URL. Whenever I reload, I see the same two banners on that page -- one for magazines (Cheaperdays.com) and a smaller one that graciously extends me a chance to win $1000 in steak or chicken (???).

    I'm trying to look into it. If you could post a screenshot of the banner and the URL it links to, it would help.

    thanks
