I tried searching google for my site name. in a CACHED copy of some bogus site that had copied some of my site content was malware popup. Happily I blocked it but to be sure I rebooted.

I was on major computer magazine site and ad rotator tried to infect my pc. Not even click on!

I even see ads for scummy fake anti-virus sites like on TV. Oh well, they're paying for my TV shows.
