Advert provider hacked?

Postby iamakka on Sat Nov 26, 2016 5:43 pm

Twice in the last 24 hours on different PC's in different buildings I've opened a browser tab (Firefox 50.0) for a thread from General Discussion here in KUMB and instead got an annoying page trying to con me into thinking my computer is infected and constantly popping up a 'login' window

Easily enough added to Adblock's exclusion list, but annoying to have to kill the browser with task manager to do so.

I'm assuming it is sneeking in disguised as an advert?

The link in question:

I gave up with adblock - it wasn't working properly & slowed my machine down immensely
Now using ublock (in firefox) working great
