Virus Warning Remedy

Some readers on other SB Nation sites (including a few Halos Heaven readers) have seen a virus warning while on this site (that seems to be a fake warning/ virus attack). Unlike some sites that would rather have a virus infect you than admit that these things happen, SB Nation is on top of this and here are more details.

The SB Nation product team recommends if this fake virus warning happens to you, first, close your browser and don't click on anything. Then, follow this procedure:

Send as detailed a report as possible to support@sbnation.com and include screen shots of everything abnormal you have seen. In your email include answers to the following questions:

- What browser/OS are you using?
- What site were you on?
- What page were you on?
- When day did you first see this?
- How many times have you seen it since?
- Has it happened on any other sites? Which ones?
- Did you click on anything after it redirected you to the virus scan screen?

The SB Nation product team would like to do a "screen share" session with you if this has happened to you; in your email let them know a time when you would be available to have such a session with them - it should be helpful. The product team here has been working on eradicating this problem, and you can help. Sorry for any inconvenience.

It has been suggested that you run this program: http://www.malwarebytes.org/ to check your computer. This is not a paid ad, someone who knows about these things recommended this link and others who know about this stuff nodded their heads in approval.
