Regarding Raw Charge / SB Nation site issues

In recent weeks, we've been made aware of a malicious pop-up ad appearing across the SB Nation network.  Though we haven't been made aware if this is happening or has happened on RawCharge.com, I did want to inform the community about the problem.

The pop-up in question appears to be a virus warning, and prompts you to download software.  The software itself is malicious and will do harm to your computer if downloaded.

The product team - the tech guys behind SB Nation and all sites on the network (including Raw Charge) - recommends you to do if you encounter the pop-up in question: First, close your browser and don't click on anything. Then, follow this procedure:

Send as detailed a report as possible to support@sbnation.com and include screen shots of everything abnormal you have seen. In your email include answers to the following questions:

  • - What browser/OS are you using?
  • - What site were you on?
  • - What page were you on?
  • - When day did you first see this?
  • - How many times have you seen it since?
  • - Has it happened on any other sites? Which ones?
  • - Did you click on anything after it redirected you to the virus scan screen?

Also, the product team would like to do a "screen share" session with you if this has happened to you; in your email let them know a time when you would be available to have such a session with them. The product team here has been working on eradicating this problem, and you can help.

Thanks, and sorry for the inconvenience.
