    I can second that something is trying to load - noscript keeps giving me a warning about xss trying to load from BHW and I am not getting this on any other site.

    I have never seen it, but there two possibilities:
    1- You have installed a browser addon/extension and this extension is making this happen.
    or
    2- Someone managed to hack BHW. ( I highly doubt this one but anything can happen ;) )

    I haven't seen it, but I'm only on iPhone so I guess it wouldn't show up for me anyway. Doubt bhw has been hacked.

    @ Treeofl1

    If you can tell me which page that is occurring on,
    I will be glad to alert the Administrators of BHW.

    Thank You - "Wiz"

    I'm also seeing a few strange Ads coming up in the BST section at the bottom and top of threads.

    I think they have been designed in order to look like AdSense Ads as I trust BHW isn't actually running AdSense. Somehow I don't think it would be approved by Google but maybe I'm wrong.

    After turning off Adblocker, there are popups trying to come up saying "Update Media Player" and the like.

    I have sent a message to our Administrators
    and pointed them to this thread.

    We've been looking at some new ad formats recently. But the screen shot isn't one of ours. I recommend sweeping your machine for malware.
