application download from front page

Twice in the last few minutes a file tried to download itself to my desktop when I loaded the front page.

A file which my computer said was an application

I told it not to download, and immediately trashed the placeholder icon, but the icon had the name

Thanks for your attention to this.

    I'll forward the info provided to the networks, but more info is required to track down the advertiser. We need at least a picture or name of the advertiser. It's likely that the networks caught the offender already.
