    Lately, when I am opening pages, I am getting a phishing message from my anti-virus. It seems to be ESPN related ads. Is anyone else experiencing this, and is there a way to stop it?

    Looking into it now. How long has it been happening?

    I'm only seeing ads from Google's network right now and none are ESPN. If a malicious ad makes it onto a network it is usually stopped quickly. I'm not sure there is anything to do other than have good protection because it can happen to any site that shows ads from Google, which is just about everyone. I am trying to see if I can find an ESPN ad to block.

    Was it Monday Night Football? I'm blocking those. That's all I'm getting for ESPN.

    Yes, I think it was MNF. It said ESPN when it was loading. I really thank you for looking into it! I normally access the site either on my phone or my Mac at home, but today I logged on with my PC, and got the message. So I don't know how long. But I thank you for checking on it!
