For the last couple of days I've been getting this annoying pop-up when I'm in RHP forums. I've dne every scan known to mankind and its not my PC doing it.
On a search of the web, this problem has been reported ion other forum boards: a copy below
We have discovered that it was a member whose personal photo is on MsnUsers.COM and so every time your browser tries to fetch the image you get a .NET Passport login prompt.
The member was very quick to change his image, but unfortunately it doesn't change old posts, so we're stuck with it until that thread drops off the bottom of the page
I'm assuming we have something similar going on here. somebody has a picture link to nl.msnusers.com as as I won't sign in automatically for obvious security reasons, so appears this irritating pop up.
Can anyone who has hosted on a password (or .net) protected site please stop?
And Russ, is there any way to scan the avatars/profiles for such and warn/remove any msnusers.com links?
EDIT: damn remote keyboard and it's dropped characters: with a thread title like that, nobody will every read this, but I can't edit the title alas.
