    Since I use Ubuntu with Firefox running NoScript for general browsing, I have not seen any such alerts or activity

    LOL! Cheater. I am now using FireFox on my Window's box and have not been alerted since. Hopefully, nothing but a false alarm.

    From what that's saying, it's triggering on flash based games - designed for the corporate environment to keep you working :p - no actual virus is detected by that particular alert. My guess is it picked up something in an add playing on the site and thought it was a game.

    That kind of behavior is indicative of having some kind of adware/spyware installed. You'd best do a full system scan for viruses and using a tool like spybot.

    The site was apparently infected by a security hole over the weekend which was causing people who would google PriusChat to be redirected to a 3rd party website. I believe I have fixed the problem now. Let me know if you have any other problems with it.

    No problems here. Mac OS X 5.8, Firefox, Adblock Plus, Flashblock, NoScript, WOT (Web of Trust). If Adblock, NoScript and WOT were available for Safari, I would go through the pain to use it. Cannot use Chrome, not available for PowerPC Macs. Really lusting after new hardware.
