Strange Pop-Up
« on: March 26, 2012, 06:25:56 AM »
This weird link kept popping up yesterday when I clicked certain links on E. I'm not sure what to make of it, but here is a snap shot of it anyways. Sorry that the text is not very clear.

I will link more here if it pops up again since I can't remember where I was on the site each time it happened yesterday.

That sort of pop-up usually appears when an image is hosted on a site that's known to distribute malware. I'm going to clip the images from those pages & leave a note explaining why.

Thanks for pointing these out.

I just had a Malware warning here;

Program I use automatically blocks said links, though, so I'm not too certain which image triggered it.

Quit worrying! These are things that affect the current market, and everything was was absorbed before then.

If you get it again, could you post the text of the warning? It might help figure out which image is the source of the problem.

Got it. I was able to match that IP address to a site that's hosting one of the images on that page. Thanks Saerra!
