Hey guys, Every time I access the DX 9.0b thread I get a password box that pops up and asks if I want to connect to airdominance.net.

Anyone else getting this?

Zone alarm said it may be a trojan horse of some sort.

It's only a .gif as as far as I can see, & I've looked at every post in the thread.

A gif that pops up a password box tully?

I guess I will have to break down and get a pop-up blocker on my system. God I h8 that. I usually just run adaware every couple days, but this gets frustrating.

I looked at common names in the threads and FI.Red.Lichtie is the only one I see that is common to the threads.

Yeah, I think its the pic in FI.Red.Lichtie's sig.

Wherever he's attempting to remote link to is blocking it.

It's very simple, someone have placed their signature or something they've posted in a HTTP-auth password protected directory on their website. Annoying, yes - trojan/h4x0r, no.

Gr8, Thanks Litchie. Not accusing you of anything. Just was trying to sort it out. Thanks for looking into it.
