    Twice in two days I have gotten the following pop-up while browsing Crackberry. Windows 8 Pro machine us IE 10. This time I think I was in a forum post and hit the back button to take me back to the home page.

    Just thought someone would want to know.

    We've ran some diagnostics on this, and it looks like it is a bad ad from a partner, nothing to do with our end. However, if it's a specific URL that always generates the problem, it could be something on our end... please let me know!

    Happened again to me just now...I was on the main page. The other two times I was browsing the forums. Crackberry is the only site this has happened to me in at least the last year, and it's all been in the last few days.

    Is there a consistent ad that shows when you get this?... if you can narrow it down to a particular ad, that MAY be the issue here... although we haven't had any other reports of this

    If I can notice which ad I will let you know.

    BTW, it just happened to me again while reading this article...
    http://forums.crackberry.com/blackbe...04/index7.html

    This time was in the middle of scrolling down, when it redirected me a couple times and then tried to run Java. It was a different address than before and of course the attempt to run a Java program was new.

    Now that I'm looking at the ads to find the bad one, I saw this one just now. It looks suspicious.

    Ps. Maybe this is all just a big trick to get me to actually look at the ads.

    @All, we firmly believe we're dealing with a rogue ad (or two) here... so, whenever you encounter the issue, if you could paste URLs it would be extremely helpful for us. Thank you!!!

    Got it again today. This happens when I refresh a particular forum thread page on crackberry.com using my desktop PC (Win 7 Ultimate, IE10).
    http://forums.crackberry.com/bb10-le...ml#post8804872.

    Of course, I run all virus checking software I have, and none are found.

    Thanks for the heads-up on this. Will surf CB only on my Mac-side or on my 9930 until this is resolved.
