I jump around the web and read news, etc. from a number of sites and I had an issue with -- www.newsmax.com -- today.
I was on the site reading an article when all of a sudden an ad
window popped up advising of security threats (very plain pop up) and to let it scan computer, we have all seen these fraudulent ads, so I closed ad box to keep reading...you know ignore stupid pop up box.
But instead of closing it started to scan...I disconnected and scanned with zonealarm, no issues.
stopped these types of threats.
How does this type of thing get started without my approval and what do I need to do to ensure it does not happen again?
Has anyone experienced something like this running without your approval?
Did you change ZA settings or something else to protect yourself?
If this can be done, what other threats or issues should I be concerned with.....?
Operating System:Windows Vista 64 bit
