SD asking me to download antenna2.js from js.dmtry.com?

This just started happening. It's sometimes prompting me to download this javascript file from SD while browsing the site. I'm assuming it's just a poorly coded ad, but maybe it's some kind of ad trojan. Thought I'd mention it.

Thanks for bringing this to our attention. It is most likely coming from an ad. It is an advertising metrics platform called Adometry (http://www.adometry.com/). It sounds like they may have introduced an error in their platform that is causing the browser to download it as opposed to just loading it as a javascript file as it is supposed to. It may also be a specific advertisers implementation as well.

How often is this happening for you? Does it seem more frequent on one type of page versus another?

A couple times so far. Just when browsing Hot Deals.

Still happening. Happened this morning on IE 11 while browsing deal talk. These three ads were displayed:

NO ALERT STORMS OR FALSE POSITIVES - SIOS
