Actually, it happened twice last night and once this morning. Unfortunately, I can't remember the pages 'cause I didn't pay much attention to it. I was directed to another site. I'll inform you as soon as it happens again.

Never type your username and password when that happens.

I'm yet to experience it...Were you surfing with a Laptop or a Smart phone?
Re: Nairaland Under Attack by wealthmission: 1:35pm On Apr 06, 2015
Re: Nairaland Under Attack by wealthmission: 1:47pm On Apr 06, 2015
This topic should be moved to front page mr Seun, because if people dont get informed abt this its trouble, I guess so many people must have filled the fields, because this attack happens on random post, pls do something

what are you saying? this is called cross site scripting attack which collect cookies or figures from a presented field then sends it to a directory or the attackers mail.

I got it here too https://www.nairaland.com/2239448/check-out-easter-card-presented

Since you use cloudflare, they have option to block this cross site scripting attack .
