Hopeful someone can look into this. Was a Fake Firefox site, with a download of a Javascript file (assuming a virus/malware). Also used report site feature in FF BEWARE!

Presumably you can't, its not a pop up--but a redirect. Meaning you get transferred to a new page. It happens when a rogue advertisement does something its not supposed to. So essentially SD developers have to report it to their ad network, then scan for the ad doing it. They have internal things they can do to block that from happening.

In FF you can report the bad website by:
Help -> Report Deceptive Site -> then fill in the info.

Reported bad websites are blacklisted within FF, and can stop others from being infected.

There's a plugin call noscript for FF.
I use it to allow SD.net but disallow all others.
Good way to blockout unwanted JS from loading.

Also a good practice to use OpenDNS which blocks out known/reported bad domains.

Thanks for bringing this up. We've blocked this URL from serving from the ad platforms.

Obviously, it should have never occurred in the first place so we've reached out to our ad partners to find out why this slipped through. We don't work with any sketchy ad networks, but instead a very small number of ad exchange and real-time bidding platforms which are top rated in terms of ad quality and safety so we have high expectations from our ad partners.

If you see any more bad stuff, please report it with as much info as possible and we'll do our best to track it down and have them banned from the ad platforms.

Thanks.
