    My Norton keeps popping up with this-

    Web Attack: Malicious Exploit Kit Website

    Attacking Computer: allenringswols. net

    I've been seeing for a few days now. It has only happened on the ammo can forum.

    I don't see anything either. I don't know what kind of virus protection we have on our work computers but no one has ever caught virus.

    I have Norton 360 as well, and it comes up almost every time I visit the ammo can.

    9/10 times it's something to do with the ads.

    Nothing has gotten on my home or work systems thus far. No warnings, no odd behavior.

    I didn't just imagine my computer shutting down when I came on here.

    This.

    Also, it could've been an ad or something that was doing an XSS attack. Insert itself as a cookie for an ad or javascript file, and when your browser pulls it up thinking that it's cached...bam.
