    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..
