When I first access WP forums, I get a pop-up from TitanPoker.com. This happens both at work and at home. It sometimes happens when I switch from one forum to another as well.
This started a few days ago.

Anyone else get this or something similar?
How do you stop it?

thanks,
dave

Hi Dave,

I don't get this, and have never heard of it happening.

I think (and may be wrong) this may be to do with some issues with your browser and/or a malware that your have inadvertently downloaded. I'm pretty sure it is not Wetpixel related:)

I've also had a Titan Poker pop-up in last few days when opening WP forum on my browser. Has only happened once with no repeats.

Cheers,
Jim.

I'm sorry if this is way off topic but I can't seem to find help elsewhere. I tried to contact the admin help but the email was kicked back. Is there something else besides email validations that I need to do before I can actually post in the forums? I would like to ask some questions in the Gear section about lenses and ports but it won't let me, :(

Please help!

The Titan Poker pop up is real and I've got it three times in the last week. It showed up today on a brand new clean version of windows 7 on a new hard drive. My protection software caught the link and referenced this;

Can people that see this post their operating system and browser? There is actually a virus going on that injects ads into your browser, but I think thats IE only.

Well, fresh Win7 means nothing. The average re-infection of an unpatched (fresh) Windows 7 is measured in minutes. Anyways, it could very well be something on wetpixel. A bad ad, or worse. But it could also be something totally different. Right now we just dont know.
