    As of today I'm getting a warning popup that the site is trying to use my browser to mine cryptocurrency, it lets me disallow the operation. I'm using Chrome.

    Can you post a pic please? I wonder if one of the embedded images somewhere is malicious.

    So guys,

    I've done all the google tests, found nothing. I've used 2 computers at work, with 2 different browsers, and found nothing. Used both my home computers, nothing.

    When you scan a website on sites to see if it is infected, they just want to sell you product. All I can figure is wordpress, or vbulletin is outdated by an update or two.

    I'm not saying there isn't something going on, but it isn't likely on our end. We use a shared server, so I have the host company doing a test for me. If there is anything going on its on their end. Plus, if there are any ads that google puts up for us, and it can somehow be linked to a website who does have an issue, your browser or virus scan can see that, and attribute it to us.

    I checked every single file and folder I have access to last night, and nothing has been modified. There was nothing in the log saying anybody was trying to log in and failed multiple times. Usually when you get hacked you have a couple thousand tries of uncompleted logins.

    Thanks for helping us figure this out. I have no idea why some people are getting notices and some are not.

    Just for housekeeping: I checked the site on my home computer (firefox, chrome), work computer (chrome), phone (chrome), ipad (Safari) so far and have not come across any warnings.

    I'm confident you guys are not mining bitcoin through us. I didn't even realize that was a thing until I started seeing the popup, so I added a blocker for it. Since then, it saw one, but it identified the site as coinhive.com:

    Man, that is so weird. I've crawled every page we have, and cannot find anything. Its either on the server side, or I'm not smart enough to locate it. And I had my wheaties today.

    Yeah, I don't know how it works at all, and I work in the computer security sector. When I refreshed the page, I saw the original popup, so I can show you what that looks like:LGTPopup.jpg

    Can you do me a favor? Can you take me a screenshot of what ad is on the very bottom of the page when that is happening?
