    Recent change?

    Has there been some recent change? I keep getting pop ups on here and my antivirus keeps blocking things

    Nope. no recent change. If you could post what it's blocking - it would be helpful.

    Which AV app are you using?

    Currently Avast and I installed Malewarebytes, there seems to be hyperlinks on certain words with pop up ads appearing randomly. Initially I thought I'd picked up some virus so I ran both avast and Malewarebytes. It seems an outward bound single is being blocked

    Wow ... almost looks like the Intellitext debacle from years ago. Except here on Chrome (only browser tested), no such effects.

    What's your browser, and what addons/extensions are installed?

    No, I mean, do you have the same symptoms as the people are describing in the linked document, which they are attributing as a symptom of malware?

    Well, that does seem strange. Are those the only two vBulletin sites you use?
