Dangerous Pop-Up.

Lately (a couple of times), I had a webpage that tried to open up without my input (did NOT clicked on anything), and the action was stopped by my Norton Security. It had just happened again just a few minutes ago, and I strongly suggest that you guys scan the forum for malwares!


This is what Norton had reported:


Dangerous Web Page Blocked
You attempted to access:
http://winappcenter.total-secureh.cl..._source=starrr

This is a known dangerous web page. It is highly recommended that you do NOT visit this page.

Re: Dangerous Pop-Up.

Hey,

Were you signed in when this happened, can you also let me know the device/browser you were using? I'll get that link reported.

Re: Dangerous Pop-Up.

Just want to let you know that the pop-up is still happening. At least 2 more instances, but none were flagged and intercept by Norton as being potentially malicious. The last one happened just a minute ago, while I was typing a reply to a post. A tab was opened up in my browser, and I was in that tab even though I was in the middle of typing! Same thing happened the time before, perhaps a couple of days ago, but that time the tab was just a blank page. This time, the tab was: It's better than Tinder!


I suspect that it's your ads display programming going a little amuck!
