Default CarDomain and drive by DLs

I've had two times now when I've gotten attempted drive by down loads from CarDomain. Anyone else have this? Last night I was viewing one of my pages and a pop up came up telling me to install some drive cleaner product. If you go to CarDomain, be careful.

I get a lot of "security warnings" to download an anti-virus thing when I go there.
Not sure what'* up with this but it'* very annoying.

they're making advertising dollars. Is anyone using FireFox getting these popups?

Crap, I've been getting a few pops with FF too.
Well, it was good while it lasted. LOL

I don;t really get many pop ups with FF overall though. But once and a while those ones on Car Domain are a pain.

I thought most current browsers had popup blockers built in?

I believe most do. I read somewhere though that the new pop ups aren't pop ups, they are some new technology that'* why the traditional pop up blockers don't catch them.
