I just tried in a XP VM as well, and nothing.

IE6 did block a cookie from "directbusinessonline.in/in.cgi?walter" by default though.

I'm thinking it might be IP targeted?

That's the second time we've seen that specific cookie. ST had it earlier this morning.

After the discussion about adblocking the other day reading this thread I had to laugh.

No issues for me but as stated in that thread, blocked and add free.

No issue using FF, Chrome, IE and opera.
IE does ask me for a java update but that's because I don't have the plug-in for the add's.
Maybe not random but limited to some region?

It could be IP/geo targeted. I've been running Avast all day and didn't catch anything yet.

If you receive a popup or avast warning, can you please screenshot that page (I want to see what ads were loaded, etc) and send to rk@hardwarecanucks.com . Also include the page source code in the email body / attachment. Thanks.

Totally agree and proves once again ads aren't completely harmless.

Hmm, never saw anything from my machine at work. But then again I didn't get on the forums much today.
