Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Folks

    I'm using Firefox 3.5 on Windows 7, and was just surfing a few threads on ARRSE when a pop-up window appeared (titled Nerd-Admin) asking me for my login and password...

    I closed it without putting in my details, but am a wee bit worried that the site might have been hacked?

    Has this happened to anyone else?

  2. Also on 3.5 and no, it's just you :wink:

    I think it's much more likely that you have some mal-ware on your PC. I would recommend running spybot or similar and a virus check.
  4. Cheers Good CO. I also came to this conclusion, but thought that I'd let others know just in case it was a wider issue with the site.

    I'm running Kaspersky Internet Security 2010 and it hasn't picked owt up. I'll try various other malware sniffers.
