Default Virus attacks while browsing HDD?

Ive been getting multiple threats from this site starting today. Anyone else? I will try to list them the next time I see the threat.

If you are visiting this site using Windows, I recommend using Firefox with the "NoScript" plugin.

IB, it just happens randomly, even when just looking at the main forums page to select a specific part of the forum.

that means it's an ad if it's random pages. only thing that makes sense.

when it happens, can you screenshot the page w/ the ads on top and to the right? just tryin' to help the IB crew here, and i know they ask for screenshots when there's exploding ads.
