While pulling up the page on resilience I was redirected to a site my browser tells me is a source of viruses. Please look into this. I did this while not logged in so it may have come from an add. --Mattzell (talk) 14:58, October 22, 2009 (UTC)

Redirected? What was the exact name of the page? The only external link I see from a quick scan of Resilience is the elitistjerks.com link. --Gengar orange 22x22Beware the sneaky smile! Fandyllic (talk · contr) 6:35 PM PST 22 Oct 2009
We're aware there have been some issues with this in the past few days, and we're working on it. Grrr at the ad networks for letting such stuff through! Kirkburn  talk  contr 16:25, October 23, 2009 (UTC)

Yuck. Ads + viruses? --Gengar orange 22x22Beware the sneaky smile! Fandyllic (talk · contr) 9:02 PM PST 23 Oct 2009

@ original post: I should have mentioned this link before: WoWWiki:Bad ads. Regarding the ads: it's pretty rare, but sometimes something manages to get thru - as soon as we hear of it, we do everything possible to get it out of the system. As we move towards better and more specific advertising (which we are), the possibility of such occurrences should get less and less. (It can unfortunately strike pretty much any website that's not running dedicated ad campaigns, and on a personal note, I'm shocked that ad networks ever let anything like it through).
