"Please Log in" ??

Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

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

  1. ~~~~~



    (My Norton is a current version and in date.)

    I am already logged in but every time I change a RR page a dialogue box appears every time instructing me to:

    <<...Please Log in. (preceded by a Keyhole Symbol)

    Server - api.viglink.com

    Message - jive SBS

    Username - An empty Box where the Cursor awaits an input

    Password - An empty Box

    your password will be sent unencrypted

    At the bottom right of this dialogue box there is a button choice for "Submit" or "Cancel"


    Choosing "Cancel" allows me to proceed as normal and I am still able to post without submitting any Username/Password.

    It is rather irritating and seems to serve no essential purpose so, being ever conscious of those "Nasty Phisher-men", could Good/Bad CO or Admin investigate and advise:

    Is anyone else affected?

    Is it genuine or not?

    If not - How can I get rid of it?

    I have the most up-to-date Norton too, Bob, and I seen nothing like the above.

    Bad CO to the rescue?

    Update -

    PC restarted & scanned, just a couple of low risk cookies found & removed and hoo-piggin'-ray, panic over: That offending dialog box has now gone away!

    FYI - A bit of googling resulted in this post at api.viglink.com/api/click - Straight Dope Message Board

    <<...Viglink is indeed a partner of ours; we get a small commission every time you click on a link to one of their clients. The process is supposed to be more or less invisible and doesn't load any software on your computer...>>

    I'm guessing its a harmless mini program, attempting to sneak in and gain a wee slice of whatever referral action between networking sites is available for their middle man (in Nigeria:angry4:?).

    Anyway - The All Clear has been sounded, my barge pole is stood down to the standby mode; now back at Readiness state 4SQ. Back on your heads!
