Seun , Nairaland is under attack. Maybe a complex phishing attack. A form pops up when I open a thread demanding I provide my email and password though I'm already logged in. Dominique, Lalasticlala, you may need to take this seriously.

It's likely a phishing attack to get details of users. Don't fill the form , guys.

Seun did not design it to be like that, if it is like that, then something is wrong. It's the possibility of something being wrong that we're notifying him about.

It might be a virus on your device or from the pornographic/free downloading websites you people have been browsing.

Which device you were using when this happened?

Which page did you open when this happened and does it happen again when you go back to the same page?

Which network were you using to browse Nairaland when this happened?

Without the above information I can't do anything. I urge anyone who experienced this to provide those details.

Also note that I can open the page now. When it was taken to front page , I couldn't open that very page without the form popping up.
The form was called "Authentication Form" and read " to access this page enter your Username and password."

It was designed in such a way that if you do not fill it you will not be able to view the thread.

I logged into nairaland with Safari on my iPad using WiFi with connection to the hospot of my Xiaomi and also used chrome on my Xiaomi and did not experience same form.

My first suspicion was Opera mini but the thing is that I used Twitter and surfed through various sites on the internet for hours without noticing same. I only noticed it on Nairaland.

it was requesting for my username and password.


when I reload it, it was still insisting for details, just filled it because I thought it was for authentication .
