When i get on these forums and click a link for instance, I get a popup webpage that tells me i won a $500 WoW gift card and that I need to fill out etc etc... it tries to get me to sign up for something through text... WEIRD THOUGH THAT IT ONLY HAPPENS CONNECTED TO THIS BLIZZARD SITE..
so first of all wanted to inform blizzard... and also wondering what I am dealing with here?
nope, i dont download suspicious stuff , im not 80 :D
/e also worth noting it happens every time I get back on these forums after a decent amount of time has passed

strange, i had no idea 80 year olds even knew how to download.
if this happened to me i would either think virus or toolbar. you can get them without downloading anything, it happened to me. when the wow expansion was released i went to a guide website and a pdf file pops up i get an error message and my accounts compromised. i'd guess it was just a more passive way of trying to get the password than using some code majority of antivirus would detect. better safe than sorry wipe it, magnet it, freeze it, bug spray it, set it on fire and reinstall.
have you tried going to other gaming sites and seeing if you got phishing popups, for any games where there is a lot of real money involved?
