There seems to be some sort of malware that comes with an advert for 'JSK Ultrasonics'

This is in the 'sponsored links', so logged-in users won't see it, and will probably depend on advertising cookies anyway.
It's trying to download a .rar file called Your_Taxes-08.16.rar

Try installing AdAware, it's a free antivirus software which focuses on advertising malware

I'm also experiencing this. Every page load (and I am logged in!) is downloading the .rar file.

It's very well users installing anti-malware software, but this is an issue that needs to be sorted on the forum side as well - one of the adverts is serving up malware and this needs to be flagged with the advertising platform.

Just to say we're on the case with Google - am hopeful it'll resolve itself shortly :) - will keep an eye over the next 24 hours and pull the sponsored listings temporarily if needed.
