We'll ask someone to look into this and will update dealpickle, if anyone else has had similar issues could you please add details to the thread - including device / OS and if you are using normal site, mobile or one of the apps to view the deal thread along with version info.

* Update - can you please check if you have any add ons installed that may be causing the issue and also run a malware scan on your device. The Amazon gotodeal link appears to be working correctly and doesn't appear to be installing anything.

iframes are the frames that split sites up. The iframe reference to a proxy is that particular frame is loading a proxy that probably contains an advert to make the site money.

It is nothing to worry about. Just make sure your Java is up to date. java.com and download and check your version etc.

iframeproxy-39 downloads itself to my laptop when i click on a certain link (which i won't reference again) on this site. A Mod has assured me that the link isn't doing this when they try it, so it must be at my end. All my malware scans have thrown up nothing at all. I just clicked the link again and it downloaded again. Does anyone know what this is? Should i be worried?

No problem. As long as you keep everything up to date (remember that patching security holes is usually done reactively and not proactively) and keep your common sense to hand you should be safe online. It works for me
