dear voices from beyond forum:

i never thought it would happen to me, but...

when i came to the board today, i got a pop-up from a 'spyware' site ('warning, your computer may be infected, click here to test...") and then one from a *.ru site.

are they from this site or do i have a rogue cookie, .dll, and/or something else?

then the nurse came in and gave me a handjob.*

Capital is dead labor, which, vampire-like, lives only by sucking living labor, and lives the more, the more labor it sucks.

It is an exploit of the Invision Power Board forum code as we are not the only message board to be hit by this.

Doesn't seem to be on Fountain Pen Network. Isn't that one Invision as well?

No one knows.

It's a top effort. I've got pop up blockers and ting, and the pop up window still appears. It's empty, though, presumably 'cause I've got Flash blocked as well.

Are they doing any damage, though? I'm a bit worried since this Russian pop-up was really elaborate with multiple windows, prompts and even a file download.

I'm using NoScript in Firefox so don't get it at all on my home PC. However accessing it at work could have been a tad embarrassing as I got a rather NSFW porn ad that popped up.

thanks to the no-script plugin for Firefox, I haven't experienced anything. I love Noscript.
