Well, I'm at home on my Mac, and it's still happening. I cleared my cache, and ran an anti virus scan with Sophos. Perhaps it's something that Safari's security is letting through? Hopefully, Apple will bring a fix out soon. Anyone else with a Mac suffering from this?

I disabled JavaScript in Safari, and that's stopped the problem. Trouble is, I can't add smileys now. Whatever it is, is running from this forum, I don't have the problem on any other sites.

I've reported the problem to Apple. Let's see if anything happens.

I doubt that it's a Mac specific problem. Not happening with mine anyway. One way you could find out for sure would be to create another account on your Mac, log into the new account, and point your browser to cbr250.net. I would almost bet that you will not get the popup from the new account.

Good thinking Batman. I've got accounts set up for all my family, so I'll try on one of theirs.

It's very strange. I get this window constantly popping up, even though I have popups disabled in Safari. It's only on www.cbr250.net though, no other sites are affected. It's like some malicious advert that's on this forum, that's getting through Safari's security.

Sorry you haven't been able to resolve... I'm not having the problem on my Mac either, but I kicked this upstairs to see if the IT guys at VerticalScope have seen it.
