Malware on front page!

Today I visited and was locked out of the webpage unless I click on one of the two notifications that appeared. They were obvious malware.

Hi

you could not click on Log-IN link ? Can you send us video ? We are using advertising provider for those two boxes and it is unacceptable what you describe.

I use Norton 360, and I don't get any warnings. Could be false positives. Sometimes it happens on this site, especially from Norton. But do as required by oss so he can double check.

And those warnings in your picture seem to be indicating at your internet security being out of date, rather than about warning you not to proceed on the site.
