There's an alert coming up when navigation this site all of a sudden. It's a result of the ustream box on the right of all the pages on the site. I managed to fix it using the AdBlockerPlus extension for Google Chrome to create a filter to stop the ustream box even loading, I'm not getting the error anymore.

If anybody has any other fixes please try and post them here. Also, if you're getting the issue please post a comment to this question saying so.

@Matt: lol.  You worked too quickly doing things.  The preventative spam kicked in, and suspended you for a day.  So even moderators aren't immune to that.....

Only administrators can be immune to it, and OSQA has not settings to change it

It seems Murphy and his laws have been messing with me a lot recently.

Now every time I browse to a question I have to go through this prompt and the one you said....

After doing what you suggested and using AdBlock I do not get the pop-up anymore.  And I do not getting the phishing site warning either.  Thanks

Possbily Because your browser typed HTTPS accidentally and lockergnome q&a doesn't have a Registered SSL Certificate. Just type in http : // lockergnome .net into your browser. Otherwise people are sending malicious links on Ustream and there's an embedded Ustream player on this site.

I always use HTTPS and it's just done it all of a sudden and it seems it's an issue effecting a lot of people.

Oh, well I use Firefox so it was just a guess of a problem I have had when I used to use Chrome.

False positive.

Happened a few months back.

We removed Ustream for the time being as we are looking into the reason. As of right now, we do not know the cause as it is out of our hand
