Malware or is it put there by NDF?

    OK, when I first land here from my Bookmark, a small video advertisement box appears in the bottom right corner of the page. Is it Malware, or are you guys aware of it?? The ads are random, nothing to do with Gambling, nor the site. So far, this only happens here.

    Mikey7a:I am aware of nothing like this coming from our forum. Just isnt something we do here.Sounds like something extra possibly downloaded into your computer if you downloaded something lately?It has happened to me several times, and I have to go to delete programs, find it, and delete it.Malware is sneaky, and gets in with other downloads.Let me know what you find.

    Mikey, the support team at activeboard cannot duplicate this. I have never seen it, Pam hasn't nor has Tony ........BUT I have had one other member tell me this happened to her a couple of weeks ago. "
    So, what we need are screenshots and if possible the source code of the pop-up ad. "
    The support rep also suggested that you both run an anti-malware scan too just in case. He feels it is that but it is not coming from our site. Could be stuck in your browsers extensions. "
    Get me more info so we can look closer at this pop-up ad."
    Thanks!

    Thanks for your replies, queenmap and David. "
    It helps to know who is and ISN'T seeing it. It could help isolate it.

    I tried to get a screenshot last time but I wasn't quick enough. Maybe if I see it again Ill get it next time. If i get a pic with the phone on my camera (I can do that faster) will that help? Or maybe I can try clicking on it and see where it takes me?

    Ok, forget the question about the camera phone pic. That wont help, ok Ill hunt it and get a screenshot.

    It appears then Quickly disappears, I'll try to capture it, or get the code.

    And now it won't do it, even after i clear my cache etc sheesh. Going to run Malwarebytes see if its Malware, but I did so the other day with none found.I use Google Chrome, and have no weird extensions either. I'll keep trying.

     Yeah, it doesn't do it every time just sometimes. And when I try to duplicate it I cant, Ill just have to be ready next time.

    Sookie, we may have what we need from Mikey's screenshots. So don't sweat it for now. I do need to thank you for bringing it to my attention the other week. The fact that you alerted me to it and then Mikey posting about it, pretty much confirmed that yeah, something is going on. Thanks again! :yourock: You rock too Mikey! :yourock:

    The ad is for something different every time - that time it was for Safeway.

    Thanks, crazysider!"
    I am so sorry that this is happening. We do not endorse anything, anyone or any company that is showing up in that nasty little video. "
    I'd kill the sitemeter at the bottom of the forum ... that tiny little banner that is the source I believe and so does activeboard's support rep ... but I need to talk to the boss first and he's not available right now. "
    We'll get rid of it (or at least not allow it to show the pop-up) in the next few days though.

    Well thought it was gone, but now it flashes on screen really fast and goes away. Well almost gone, guess I will try to use spybot again and see what happens.

    Sitemeter has been removed so members should not be seeing the pop-up videos anymore. "
    Thanks to all who contributed to this thread and helping us isolate the problem. :yourock:
