Help Worrying security warning when on AO

For the last few days when at work I've been getting security warnings when I have been on AO stating that "card.mygamercard.net is trying to open a window in my intranet".

The intranet site is stated as being 192.168.51.3

It last happened when I clicked on the Camarro cool wall thread a few minutes ago but has occured on other pages but not all.

It isn't happening when on other websites.

Can the Technically minded management please check this out and is anyone else experiencing it?

Nothing here Jim and am not that clever to be able to offer any advice. Does sound like someone is trying to get into your machine.

Re: Worrying security warning when on AO

Does it give you a problem now that I posted here and my signature is again displayed.

mygamercard.net is the site that hosts my gamercard signature.

If so, I may have to remove it.

Re: Worrying security warning when on AO

It could be Ant's sig. I went on another couple of cool wall threads and got it on each one.

Funny but it doesn't seem to upset my Mac at home.

Work IT must have upgraded the anti-virus stuff lately as it never used to happen.

Ant - now I know it is you, don't delete it on my account. It's no hardship to hit the "no" button when the warning arises at work.

Cheers all. My mind is at rest we don't have some dodgy, pervasive agency lurking within AO.

Re: Worrying security warning when on AO

From what Ian said, you weren't the only one having problems, and he asked me to remove it, so I did.

Now I only have two tachikomas in my profile, though...

Everything should be OK now.
