Beware of rogue adverts on UPCCC

Damn Proboards!

Please be careful when browsing UPCCC. Some of the adverts have exploits in them which can attempt to do nasty things to your computer.

I don’t want to scare people - this is a rare occurence but it can happen. Just like it can happen on any other ad-based site.

So to be safe:

  • Use Firefox with adblocker, or similar software. IE9 has tracking protection and advanced filtering, and Chrome is pretty awesome so sure it has something too
  • Ensure you have anti-virus software in place (including malware protection and firewalls)
  • Contact us if it happens regularly so we can complain to Proboards

Thanks :blush:
