DO NOT supply login info to the virteq popup.
I am running firefox, cleared my cache, and still get this. I tried it on chrome and there are no issues.
I poked around. Something was hacked. It's not this forum but this forum uses default themes and one of those has been hacked.
Try going to the bottom of the page (this forum) and hit the Change Theme button. You'll get some choices. Pick something else. I tried haze. The display will be strange but then try another page. it all gets back to normal and the silly pop up goes away. At least it did in the other window.
update: the default theme is bulletin. That one seems to have the problems. I changed it to ip board and that's okay. All the others seem to be okay.
another update: Other sites using this sw are having this problem. I found this (for Terry):
The site skin has:
Buried all over the place as a branding of some sort. Their site is whacked, now asking for authorization to access it, so when the URL is called, you get the authentication dialog.
You need to strip that out of all of the CSS to make the dialog disappear, or do a local DNS redirect to dead-end it someplace.
I removed the offending code. Tested on Edge and do not see the popup anymore.
If anyone sees similar popups anywhere, please respond to this topic and I'll remove it.
I'll be looking through the code to see if I can find it anywhere else, but I only found one place in a global template, which I removed.
I'm guessing their site got compromised or they implemented some new authorization scheme that extended to all external references.
Any site using their skins (not just this site, nor just this skin of theirs) will be impacted by whatever they did.
Again, just to repeat, the skin was a verified one to use for this software. There was no hacking of this site.
