post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
  • What happened?
    Simply came here to the site and this popped up immediately.

  • Are you able to reproduce this problem consistently?
    More or less - This has happened several times over the last few days and doesn't seem to have an apparent trigger or time to appear.


  • What steps did you take to reproduce this problem?
    Came here and browsed.
    Made sure my browser's setting were for NOT updating which they are, this includes all plugins.


  • What action did you expect to occur when this bug appeared?
    Unplugged my connection when it appeared and shutdown my browser via task manager. I've done a reinstall of the OS since the first few times I've seen it but after the reinstall it appeared again.


  • Any additional information that will help us diagnose the issue:
    Within the site dialogue box there is a "Site" address that appears, searched to find out about this site and found nothing. Screenies have this info.


  • Browser, active browser addons, and operating system:
    Firefox with Win 7 64 bit


  • URL where the issue occurs:
    See screenies.

Update:
Been seeing this over and over again here with all sorts of weird web adresses in the update dialogue box shown.

Turns out from digging around it's apparently a trojan trying to get in and I've also seen another thread elsewhere on this:

I'd have to guess OCN has a bad ad rambling around somewhere, problem is when it pops up I don't get to see what it is.

Popping up on Edge too and if anything it seems to be getting more frequent. Windows defender recognizes it as BrowserModifier:Win32/Hopadef https://www.microsoft.com/security/portal/threat/encyclopedia/entry.aspx?name=BrowserModifier%3aWin32%2fHopadef&threatid=227966&enterprise=0

It is getting recognized and removed immediately but still pretty annoying.

Thanks, I will report this to the Team and see if we can track this down. I would however recommend a full scan of your PC to remove any adware that may be showing up on websites but not necessarily originating from the websites.
