Just had a weird experience. Came onto ATS as a guest and every link I clicked in UFOs and Aliens redirected me to an "Adobe" download page on a URL that prompted me via a javaScript alert to download the latest version of Flash Player. The URL was quite close but not quite Adobe.com. Logged in and the problem is gone. If there are any code differences between a guest rendering and a logged on user (apart from CSS), I'd have a look and see what's going on.

It's just a known Java exploit making it's round around the internet.

I've had it a few times while browsing, logged in and logged out.

I haven't got this on any other site I've visited, only here, hence why I've reported it.

I'll log off and see what the hyperlinks are saying.

Right it is definitely ATS. You get it as soon as you hit the login screen as a guest after logging out or on threads you click as a guest. Login and you don't have the problem. If this was client side malware, man in the middle or a virus, being logged in to ATS would make jack difference to turning it on/off. Someone is injecting javaScript into the guest screen display. IMHO

I thought for a while that the same thing had happened as I had the same experience, try downloading Malwarebytes trial and running it, I found several problems even Bullguard security had missed and it fixed the problem for me.
Just google or bing Malwarebytes for a free trial or try a deep scan with your anti virus but some malware can evade virus checkers.

Cheers...I'll run a scan, but my gut instinct is that one of the adverts that guests get has somehow managed to find a way of escaping the X domain policy browsers use.

Hey there. Yes, there is an outside problem popping up due to a java flaw that can mess up your computer if you click it. Dont. If your ADOBE has a needed update ( yes, I create PDF's for a newsletter so I'd assume I prob need it if it pops up)...go to the net and search 1st.

There have been huge issues of late with that thing. Good luck! MS

The problem only appears when using Internet Explorer (IE10 in this case). I've tried to replicate it with other browsers and they all run fine.

Interesting that you say its only been happening with IE10 for you.

Chrome seems to fair better than others but I've notice it hitting Safari and Android as well. Have had a few persons ask me about this week.

I have said this before, ATS mods say that they have no yuckies!!!

However, I knew a girl who had yuckies and she denied that categorically too.

It only happens on ATS but it is not ATS...

Why I run adblock and no script, so I can browse in peace without being tracked since ats uses tracking based ads.
