Can we please take the IMVU video out of the Cash Tree videos? You have to do more that just watch the video to earn the cash. It does not belong under the Cash Tree.

I don't know if this is the place to report my issue.
But the supersonic video ads aren't working for me, I'm using google chrome. Hopefully someone can help me with this problem, much appreciated.

Clicked to to an OfferX offer and the redirect had a trojan in it apparently.
Avast picked up the trojan horse and blocked it.

User Image - Blocked by "Display Image" Settings. Click to show.

Do NOT do OfferX offer's if you don't have an anti-virus unless it's been confirmed that the virus is a false-positive.

The location of the offer is probably in the UK only, and it may be in more than one offer suppier but this one was from gWallet.

How about the, "Find friends with benefits and Be Naughty!" Offer from Matomy for a whopping 6054 Gaia Cash?

As intriguing as that sounds, it also sounds a bit inappropriate.

This is malware disguised as GIMP.

Adds for "meet singles" are all over Gaia right now and just about every time I log on there is a topless girl or one with a completely transparent shirt - nipples and areola fully visible-

I do not believe topless dating/sex hook-up adds fits with pg 13
gWallet has malware on the 'free snuggle sample' add

random pages on gaia that have an advertisement on them, it seems that they try to launch a virus at you.
this happened recently and this is my second time posting about this- I'm seriously concerned about safety on gaia, especially if the issues are coming from adverts!

I would like to report a few cash offers that contain harmful software to the user.

Both "DLeasy - Real Player" and "Arcadeweb - Street Fighter" Found via SponsorPay Contain a file calling itself

"not-a-virus:AdWare.Win32.ScreenSaver.exe"

Obviosuly, blatent AdWare. But folks without a good form of virus protection are at great risk.

"Adware covers programs designed to display advertisements (usually in the form of banners), redirect search requests to advertising websites, and collect marketing-type data about the user (e.g. which types of websites s/he visits) in order to display customized advertising on the computer.

Other than displaying advertisements and collecting data, these types of program generally do not make their presence in the system known: there will be no signs of the program in the system tray, and no indication in the program menu that files have been installed. Often, Adware programs do not have any uninstall procedures and use technologies which border on virus technology to help the program stealthily penetrate the computer and run unnoticed."

If someone could look into this, id be grateful.
I'm unsure about "DLeasy - Real Player". The arcadeweb offer is definatlly infected with this, But i may be getting false positives about the DLeasy one.

At the very least, the offer should mention that the adware is present as it does with a few other offers.

I am just a little concerned. When I clicked the Cash Tree I was redirected to the normal page but also got a Block-Up.

My Avast Anti-Virus Popped up and informed me that they had blocked a Malicious URL.
These were the details given to me.

The download for angry birds from "play pickle" under the "Super Rewards" tab is definitely malware. Just warning other users and hopefully admin will stop endorsing the download of harmful software. I hate reformatting >.<
