Sometimes when i will read some posting here in linux.com their is a pop up screen that want me to enter username and password, is this is a feature of that thread or a spammer?
I've never seen anything like that here on the forums, Arben. Can you post a screenshot?
wait i will try to located that thread.
I've seen the same thing, but the domain name is for beta.linux.com which is a restricted area, hence the authentication request. Not sure how that's creeping into pages. Maybe an image has been left behind from the beta version.
attach is the screenshot of what ive seen,
you can try it be viewing the thread posting under ubuntu channel.
i cant attach the screenshot its too big. you can try to see it by your self by viewing the thread "posting?" in under the ubuntu channel.
I have noticed the same thing on some of my posts from when the site was in beta, hopefully the staff can run a quick script to update those links.
at the second day of this site is open i already experience it but ignoring it and closing the box, and when i experience it more, i thought that this is a feature of an thread, but i think that it can be a virus or what.
hope the admins can resolve it soon, because it can be a hole of this site.
A virus? If you're running Windows, and you're not seeing the beta.linux.com dialog, then that's possible, otherwise it's extremely unlikely. That's kinda one of the many benefits of Linux.
Please send a message to Brian Profitt listing the discussion that is prompting the message so they have a starting point to work on a resolution.
