Does anyone face the same issue? From time to time. I get a pop up with an IP address as a header asking me to enter a user name and password. I do not do anything and cancel but as I browse nairaland, from time to time, it keeps popping up. See the image below.

I could not find a better category to post this thread in and so chose programming.

That was the first time i ever noticed that. I felt the site had been hacked so i didn't bother to log in.....

I had to continue as a guess.....

Never enter your pass word into such pop-ups. Just dismiss them and then report them to us!

Something similar happened to me too.

On November 15 I received 229 messages from nairaland ..
An email containing email confirmation.
It happened as if I just registered that moment but I registered 2years ago.

Below is the screenshot

Thanks for all the updates. I followed Seun's advise and did not enter my user credentials. It is concerning though as it appears to be a server server side malicious program?? Experts will advise better.

OK, so I was not alone, I even created a thread on it wondering about it.
I liked your pic of the viewing center btw
LOL. It's not a viewing centre. It's a bar. An open bar.

I wonder what the deal is with these pop up sign-in stuff. It's frustrating at times.

This is looks like a persistent XSS attack, Might be wrong, Seun Do the needful and you really need to get this site security upgraded, https and all.

I think Dot.tk (and other free host) websites should be (temporarily) barred/banned.
