    You know you're in blackhat IM when you dream about popunders..

    I had just finished reading this..

    Code:
    https://www.reddit.com/r/nosleep/comments/5p0oi1/i_found_something_in_the_cias_declassified/
    Then I kinda fell asleep on my phone as I always do.. it's 4am here

    I had a strange VIVID AS FUCK dream a few minutes after falling asleep of being in my living room on my PC with my mum across talking to me (I don't remember what we were talking about)

    Then I clicked some shit and there was a Browser jacking popunder which couldn't be closed..

    I tried and tried and it was displaying porn..

    There was also a weird message across the screen with a grey background and some kind of banner strips that ran across the page.. I don't remember what the words said..

    Then my mum noticed my panicking and tried to come over to investigate what was happening..

    At this point I pressed CTRL + ALT + DELETE and then I woke up..

    Kinda WTF..

    On a serious note, thanks for the fucking rabbit hole. I'll be up until 4-5am reading/investigating thanks to that reddit.


    Especially since I just played a game on steam "Hacknet" which was a hacker simulator that was awesome with a fucking scary ass storyline similar to the one you just uncovered...

    I want to shoot the ad network CEOS that allow ads like that on their networks. No reason a pop up should suddenly use all your ram on your computer and then stop it from working. Browser makers should look into this.
