Strange search pop-up

NogginNoggin Registered User regular
This is really weird but it happened on both my computer and my iphone, using firefox and safari respectively if that's any help

Using advanced forum search for the word "resolution" in the Title box brought up a username/password pop up that said:
A username and password are being requested by youarebeingmanipulated dot com. The site says: "Access Restricted (pwrestrict)"

That it also happened on my brand new phone makes me think it's not on my end... I hope?

    What other options did you do on the search because I'm not getting anything.

    I searched resolution, got the results page

    expanded the advanced options, typed resolution in the "Title" box, searched again.

    No other options. I've only had it happen when searching via thread title, and only on that word. So weird.

    My guess is that you searched for content that loaded an image from that site, which now requires a password to access it.

    that seems to be the case. when i do an advanced search with the word "resolution" in the title, the ninth result (thread titled: "It doesn't have to be New Years (Resolutions)") shows a broken image with a URL matching the "youarebeingmanipulated" site.

    weird that it pops up a login though. on Chrome it doesn't appear.

    Ah, yup. Appears to be from this post:

    Sorry then. After seeing the "New Ads?" thread I figured I'd post this in case it was phishing or something

    This was absolutely worth reporting, thank you.
