http://static.ak.fbcdn.net phishing site, causes note pad pop ups
Hi everyone. i just started having this problem recently, starting yesterday, whenever I visit a certain site on Internet explorer,
I get this download bar sayign its downloading something from static.ak.fbcdn.net and then a notpe pad pops up with XD somthing in the file name, and a piece of code in the body. I haven't copied the exact file name or the code that is in the body, but i definitely know it starts with XD.
I looked up the url static.ak.fbcdn.ne and found out they are a phisihing site ownded by Facebook. I cant imagine facebook being responsible for this, it thought I was under atttack by some rogue internet hacker.
Anyway I would like to know if anyone here knows how to block this pop up from appearing on my comptuer when i use internet explorer on certain websites.
I will do more independent reseach on whether there are any methods to fix this problem on your own, but if anyone has experienced this and knows how to stop it pleas post here.
