Hey folks, we had 2 reports of a pop-up ad on the MAKE site, we’ve tried to reproduce it and track it down. So far nothing, but we’re working with our ad folks to double and triple check if it’s something being served here or just a coincidence. Thanks for patience and understanding on this, we obviously do not want this on the site, never have and never will.

Update: As some of you already discovered, we were regrettably the victim of some malicious code in an ad campaign that caused unapproved pop-ups and may have impacted certain browser functionality while visiting makezine.com. We believe we have identified and eliminated the problem.

The majority of our campaigns are sold and processed by Federated Media, who have proven to be extremely reliable in screening for such code. However, this campaign was not placed through FM, and unfortunately, we did not discover the code until it was live. Our profuse apologies to those of you who were impacted. We aim to do better.

Thanks for the help and heads up folks.
