Thread: Weird Popup

  1. #1

    Weird Popup

    I keep getting a spammy-looking popup telling me to update my Flash whenever I click on a TAT link; is anyone else having this experience?

    Nope. But I have plug ins disabled in my laptop and only have TAT as an exception.

    Now it is happening. Every time I click to go to a new thread, I get this:

    Re: Weird Popup

    Because of this "links lead to spam" problem I've had to disable all of our extra goodies (arcade, awards, like/agree, sidebar everywhere, etc.) This should fix the problem temporarily - for the most part (it may take a few page loads for it to work its way out of your cache). Tomorrow I'll work on discovering which goody is causing the problem and make a decision at that time on the best way forward.

    Without Sidebar Everywhere, the sidebar only appears on the main forums page.

    It looks like once you click on a link during a visit to TAT, that link is safe if you stay here. Once you leave and come back, it's not safe until you click on it at least once.

    I'm in touch with vBulletin and the company that hosts our server. We may have to revert to a backup from before this attack happened... which, according to JTC's first post, was around 1 p.m. (EST) yesterday.

    It was an hour or 90 minutes earlier than that. I thought I had accidentally opened a new window and kept shutting it before I knew what it was.

    Can I ask... Is everyone experiencing these spam popup/redirects?

    Can I ask what browser you're using? If I use Chrome I get it a lot. If I use Safari, nothing, everything is fine. I'm going to try Firefox now.
