Im getting tons of prompts on computers saying that my flash isn't up to date and to update it and it really feels like not a good thing...can you guys see what's up with that? It takes over the whole screen and only on rennlist.

This is continuing to happen all the time. I don't know in detail how this stuff works, but my understanding is that ads can be infected intentionally or through negligence from the advertiser or ad supplier. The remedy is for Rennlist to block the advertiser or the ad supplier, at least temporarily, if you can find which one it is. And really, ads should be completely prohibited from including any Javascript code, which I think is how the malware is delivered. Last resort -- everyone installs an ad blocker (possible revenue loss for Rennlist).

I was one of the idiots that installed it. Spent yesterday morning at my local Apple store having them clean it up. I reported it to Rennlist but it is still active this morning.

Still occurring. I am checking both my macs for bugs, but have not found any. The problem appears to be on Rennlist.

Seems better in the last day or two. No more occurrences for me.

My premium malwarebytes is going crazy when I come to rennlist -

Malwarebytes is flagging the connection domain tracking.cirrusinsight.com in app's category as a trojan???

IP:address 54.235.248.216 port 60135

What is going on with the site?

As of this morning the below comes up every time I hit rennlist from my iPad (not iPhone). Pops up within seconds- the site is completely unusable:
