how did this happen?

so i jsut turned on my computer, got on UB and i was reading posts when all of a sudden i start getting popus at random times as if they were coming from the site. I know they weren't supposed to be there on purpose but is it possible someone hacked the site? Just a question. This seems to happen every time i'm on and only when i'm on UB...

UB.c definately has absolutely NO popups, so I'd suggest you run some spyware scans on your computer and do a bit of clean up.

It's not this site.

They're not coming from here. It's adware that's fuckin' you in the ass. Get AdAware, clean your computer, then start using Firefox like all normal people.
