I had similar on Friday, I didn't touch it assuming it was a hacking attempt.

Just found this...

Only on mumsnet, DH says it's a problem with the site. Probably an ad.

Hi all - we'll flag this to Tech and see if we can find out what's going on. Thanks for posting everyone.

Hi all - from what we can see so far, it's an ads issue, but Tech are still looking into things. We'll update when we know more. Apologies for the delay. Thank you all for posting.

Hi, any update? I'm still getting this on every page?

MythicalKings Fri 30-Oct-15 08:26:57

Me too!

ColetteTech (MNHQ) Fri 30-Oct-15 13:56:29

Hi everyone, this is likely to be a problem with one or a group of ads, is there a common ad that is being shown at the same time this message appears?
Thanks for your help

Not with me, it's every page I click on sad

I have been getting this for weeks and I reported it to Mumsnet too. I looked online and it says it is a malware thingy

It's always there when the animated Lenor ad is there and also the Sure one.
