When i was logging into my homepage, i noticed the following message at the bottom of my browser screen: "waiting for beacon.rubiconproject.com". This wasn't the site i was logging into, but i wasn't redirected to it either. I've read that it's a cookie, so i was wondering is it safe or is there a risk to my computer security and do i have to change my passwords for other sites ? A security scan showed nothing was wrong by the way. Thanks.

A very quick check on google shows the rubicon project to be some sort of advertising thing.

If it is a cookie then you should be able to delete it but be aware that there is the possibility of other files being on your commputer.

I presume that the rubicon project is for giving you advertisments related to what you look at on the internet.
