Infected AD maybe

crapoid685 14 13 January 11, 2012 at 01:13 PM
I am getting a popup when hitting your site(just the main page) from firefox on OSX Lion. The file is afr.php and it is from cas.ny.us.criteo.com. I tried to let someone know but the person at info@slickdeals.net is an idiot and gave me a canned response. Attached is a screenshot. Thanks.

That doesn't look like anything infected, just a setting wrong on the ad server making it download instead of display. Totally harmless Smilie

First I will let a web dev address the pop up issue but it's really not nice to slam someone here just because you didn't get an answer you liked. Posting here for that kind of issue is the way to go...but you should be more polite in your request.


He beat me to the punch Smilie

Thanks cgrady.

Has this been resolved? I am now getting this pop up and do not know the source.

Same here. This thing keeps popping up with alarming regularity. Annoying, even if not all that serious.

I also started getting this today. Running Firefox on Mac Snow Leopard. Note possible pattern: Thread started in January 2012--now January 2013: started happening again.

I did some googling and came up with this solution:

Delete the mimtypes.rfd file and restart firefox (the file can be found here- firefox dropdown menu > help > troubleshooting > profile folder (show folder))

seems to have worked, for now.

The Nordstrom ad pops up a new tab with Nordstrom's shoes.

Time for adblock, sorry about your ad revenue.
