Every so often, if I'm on the main WSN site it flips to a page that says "urgent Firefox update needed" and offers to download a script. It's clearly not from Firefox, so I'm concerned that someone has injected something into the Flash code that runs on the site (rant about how crappy Flash is omitted) trying to push malware of some sort.

Normally I'd have AdBlock running here, but it screws with seeing other stuff on the site and there's this whole "try to support a site" thing that I'm trying to do. However, if there's a choice I'll take "deal with not seeing stuff" over "getting malware pushed to me."
I'm not saying some things the WIAA does are wrong, ... I'm just saying, "I find it weird."

I've been getting this too, but not just here, so I'm not sure how to pinpoint where it's coming from. Might be a Firefox issue as a whole?

I haven't tried using Chrome here, but I do know that I only get this on the regular pages of wissports.com - I haven't seen it happen if I'm in the forums. So, if we can help troubleshoot this site it maybe helps narrow down things.

I can confirm that this has happened to me a few times in Chrome. I have not tried Firefox
