NickdiskRe: Popups and viruses
Just a few members should be fine :smile: The bit we need to find out which network the adverts are coming from are the first few lines, like:


<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN">
<html><head><title>SA-UK</title> <!-- Begin Best Boards Advert Code (FREE Plan!!) -->
<SCRIPT LANGUAGE="JavaScript" src=""></script>
<!-- End Best Boards Advert Code -->

You do mean to post the source as I did above? I can ask my users to post them but I suspect you will get a lot of posts-do you really want many of these? Or should I just get a few more to post?
NickdiskRe: Popups and viruses
The only way we are going to be able to find the source of this if it is indeed coming from one of our ad networks is to have the source code from a board page that was loaded when this happens. Could you ask your members who receive the pop ups to right click on the board page they are on when they get the pop up, go to 'View Source' and then send it to us by posting it in this thread. If someone can do copy the source of a page from the board that was loading when the problem pop up loaded that gives us what we need to stop allowing whatever network is sending that out to us and in turn sending it to you :smile:

Please do NOT use pop up blockers on our network as you are stealing revenue from us and that is a big reason of why we are NOT taking any new boards OR allowing free boards to remain. If you use a pop up blocker you're violating BbBoards TOU and abusing BbBoards service :smile:
anne123456Re: Popups and viruses
I'm getting more and more complaints about this type of thing. Is there anything bbboy or we can do? (besides recommending people use a different browser-I know using Mozilla eliminates the problem.)
NickdiskRe: Popups and viruses
Thanks for letting us know :smile: I've passed the details on to BbBoy :smile:
anne123456Popups and viruses
We're getting a lot of popups and trojans and viruses triggering antivirus software on our board in the last week or two. All the complaints are from people using IE on Win2000. I just was able to replicate it on my work computer and my antivirus program warned about something called MHTMLRedir.Exploit and several windows popped open. Here is the source code as a whisper as you indicated might help sort this out in an earlier thread. It only happens with the first 2 reloads of the db per day, so I guess it's associated with the popups we are supposed to get.

Thanks for your help!
