Grumble, grumble: one of my statistics counters now has "malvertising" on it

At least that's what my AVG program is telling me. It's sad to discover that one of the counter sites I use, Webstat, appears to be generating a frame above the counter itself that's laced with "malvertising", and for me anyway, it leads to a situation where the AVG tells me it's intercepted the potential viruses and phishing trash that could come with it almost every time I load the main page.

So I though it best to write this post to let everybody who might've gotten similar messages know that I'm aware of the problem now affecting a statistics counter I've had for possibly over a decade now, and I wrote a message about it to the Webstat server's support system, but if no promising reply is received, I realize I may have to jettison the counter after all these years. Fortunately, I do have others that're also good, and hopefully won't be affected by such unpleasant issues.

Update: there are some ads turning up now that seem to work properly without prompting the AVG to say malvertising was intercepted. Maybe things are improving on Webstat's end, but even so, it's a shame when annoying cases like these occur, and it's not like anybody actually wants ads put on their statistics counters that easily.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
