The past few days, I have been getting an alarming amount of these warnings from noscript on ATS.

Anything from the picture upload button, to pressing play on an embedded video has been triggering it. It never used to happen before, does it have something to do with the recent changes?

You might want to check your computer. I have been on here all weekend and haven't had any problems.

You use noscript as well?

Along with other warning programs, and haven't had any problems with any of them.

I have also had a lot of page redirects triggered by ATS clicks in the last couple of days. They took me to a site called updatlate.com which launched a pop-up telling me my Java was out of date and I should "click OK to update". Er yeah, not falling for that one.

It only seemed to launch from ATS, not any other sites I've visited.

Hmmm, guess I might as well run a deep full scan with mbam then.

Old issue. I made posts about the issue several times.

Good luck getting anything changed.
All the Big Wheels told me its normal. Noting is wrong.


I can tell you from my own experience...let it go.

Mbam says I am in the green, not sure what is up. Ran ccleaner again too to make sure it wasn't my cache having issues or something.

I have the same issue sometimes with Noscript and youtube videos embedded on other sites. Particularly here on ATS.

if that happens when you click that upload button it is probably because the upload button is a flash object, the click on it triggering the opening of a window to select a file on your computer.

it's that interaction between flash and your os that noscript is intercepting

another proof that ats are total amateurs when it comes to web development (html5 allows now for fancy upload and there aren't anymore reasons to use flash anywhere - an "upgrade your browser" alert is the sane thing to do for those not supporting html5.

(nb: i didn't check for myself so i won't pretend i'm 100%certain, 85% though)

I use noscript and haven't had any similar issues, or any issues?
Are you using anything else in conjunction with it?

ABP, Ghostery, etc?

I have never seen that popup when I click a video on facebook so far. And all the alerts was a new thing, I been using noscript for years, definately never got it here before clicking upload. ATS and youtube are whitelisted in my noscript. Don't use ghostery, can't comment on ABP.

It's plain and simple a false alarm. NoScript has recently been entering the realm of alarmist over-reactionary alerts as some kind of means to convince less-informed users that it's constantly doing something.

That alarm was received for the Jesse Ventura embedded video from Ora.TV. It uses the exact same technology as embeds from YouTube (actually, quite a bit less in terms of user-tracking), but NoScript has hard-coded exceptions for YouTube. So the alert is pointless and needlessly intrusive.



Edit to add:

I'm online a great deal more than most people, and visit a wide range of sites every day. I've never used anything in the form of script blockers, cookie blockers, and have never deleted any cookies except for testing code or forcing a reset for testing. I've never had any issues.
