Archives » There is something lurking in my DM box...what is it?
Cesodevo Avina

Frequently when I check my DMs, this appears:


error.jpg



This appears nowhere else, not on any other website, only when I check my messages here in SWC.

Once I pressed on 'accept temporary', and then after a few minutes, my browser died.

Afterwards, I keep pressing 'do not accept' since I don't know what it is (and, apparently, when I do accept, my browser melts).

So...what is this?

I am getting this periodically when viewing the galaxy map too.

My guess is that is is a banner from the bx doing something it shouldn't. Try mailing the asims and bannerexchange@swc.

Are you a newbie, or do you have access to newbies?
Make sure you note which banner is currently displaying, and from which company (Google, SWC Banner Exchange, etc.)

I seem to recall a bug report about something like this too.


Every once in a while the banner companys try to be little buggers
and sneak scripts and pop ups into the IFrame. We've already tracked em down a few times. And no doubt we'll find em again.

I've been getting this as well. However my browser hasn't died because of it, at least not yet.


Teyacapan Quetzalxochitl

Yeah, there's someone using an avatar that triggers that as well.

I get the same thing every time I view the galaxy map.


The above image results from the avatar of one of the players (happens on the forums from time to time as well). Maybe contacting that person could resolve the problem?

If it's the avatar, for security reasons, shouldn't the Combine REMOVE the avatar?

If someone with such an avatar/signature were reported to the ASims, perhaps they would be.

i get that whenever i check my messages.Casodevo you are not alone with this problem.i think our web browsers are detecting what they feel is a security threat.

Just ran across a player that triggers it; Nein Karlith. If anyone's interested.

I sent him a message about the problem, hopefully Mr. Karlith will fix it himself.

Greetings-

You may want to change your image host, as you cause a 'certificate failed' error to come up if anyone views your profile or receives mail from you. I suggest hosting your avatar image on Imageshack:
http://imageshack.us/
or Ripway:
http://www.ripway.com/

this is the error we receive when looking at your profile or attempting to load your avatar picture:

Khris Whitesaber

he needs to it is causing a lot of hassles we do not need.


Phryss

If he doesn't change it himself, you can email the asims to ask them to.

Adblocking the image works for me


Cesodevo Avina

There was another person with an avatar that caused this. Since I am not getting the error message anymore, I guess that since 3 weeks passed, it was avatar-related.
I don't remember who that person was though.

But now that I know the source to this problem (or at least one source, the other seems to be a banner as others here have pointed out), so when it appears again I simply report it to the ASims after the character with the avatar doesn't change it?

Understood. Thanks.

Did Nein Karlith change it?

No he didn't.

But for sake of having to delete spam, maybe you can close this thread. I know what to do when this appears next time.
