    Viewing on iPhone from Reeder (wasn't logged in), kept getting forcibly redirected to App Store for various games. Both while viewing latest comic and in Reaction thread.

    I also got the virus alert. Using Windows 10 with Avast.

    Visited the site at around 1400 EST on 2/11/2017.

    Including screenshot of alert.

    Posting again to report that Malwarebytes also reports the front page as infected.

    It's attempting to redirect browsers to get exploited.

    Get ready for someone to complain about getting hit with ransomware in 3...2...1...

    Obligatory screenshot attached.
