    Okay okay. Don't panic.

    I'm not sure if this is BHW or something on my system

    I have come across this once. I suppose you were using Mozilla Firefox. It's either a bug or some site oriented.

    Cheers :)

    Hahahaha you've got malware...

    It's definitely something on your computer, might be to do with a FireFox addon.

    From picture it looks as JS pop-up from BHW.
    My guess BHW has cross-site scripting volnurability ...

    It has got something to do Firefox. I have come across this once. Probably as you already mentioned, it's an add-on.

    Cheers :)

    I find it just fine. The default was way too fine for me, and leaning again and again was much too trouble.


    =====

    So, is it a malware, an XSS, Firefox or some other shit?

    It's comScore. Sort of like google analytics for enterprises and big time publishers.

    I've got this a few times when opening BHW. And my first thought was some malware got installed. But this didn't happen with any other site..

    Thanks for the clarification. It will save millions of lives, and prevent hours of trolling.
