Salon received complaints about an advertisement that appeared on our site. The ad included concealed code causing some people using Apple computers to be redirected to a site that then attempted to induce the users to download what appears to be malicious software. Salon immediately eliminated the advertisement. If you recently viewed our site from your Apple computer and were redirected to another website from which you download software, you should check to ensure that there is no malware on your computer. Apple provides instruction on how to do that here. Please contact us if you have questions.
