Popup trying to get you to install Java. Looks phishy

Post by stevenaa on Tue Apr 14, 2015 11:13 am

Hey Joel,

There was a pop up that said "This contect may require...." Note the misspell. Also link looked phishy. I'll try to get a screen shot if it pops up again. It's in your ad window

For anyone interested... i have been using and ad-on called NoScript for a few years - it blocks just about every third part script. It takes a little time to "train" it to not block the good, but it is very effective

I understand the Ads, this one didn't seem kosher. It wasn't really an ad. It popped up in the Ad space, but was prompting for an install and the link was not kosher IMO.

Are you going to link the forum from the main site? Also the Gulfstreamcomposites.com link in the top left brings up the forum, not the sales site. Not sure if that's your intent, but I know it's hard to catch these things sometimes during the page design. This is Steve from the other site. Steve was taken already, so now it's steveaa Wink
