Good News for all the ship spotter's coming to the Hampton Roads area of Virginia USA.

The fishing pier at Overlook Beach at Fort Monroe Hampton VA that was damaged and closed after Hurricane Isabel in 2003 has been repaired/rebuilt and opened in April 2018.

This pier will allow to get closer pictures of ships as the pass into and out of the Hampton Roads area including Norfolk, Newport News, Hampton, and Portsmouth VA.  You will be seeing some pictures from in the future taken from there.

This can be accessed with FREE parking and no access fees from the parking lot at Overlook Beach at Fort Monroe Hampton VA.  If you are in the area I HIGHLY suggest checking it out.

Thanks and hopes this help!!!

All fine if I log on from work, using Chrome. But logging on from home I am getting messages that it is a dangerous site and must download Microsoft update etc. using Firefox at home.

Agree with many of the comments that the problem seems to come from ads.  What is confusing for a former Supporter is that we were supposed to be ad free if we provided support!!!?Huh??

Very shortly after accessing shipspotting.com the attached message showed up on the front page.

This message tells me to install a flash player update and it pretends that I use a certain obsolete version - actually flash player is not installed at all. When right-clicking on the message it still asks to start a download from some dubious site (as shown on attachment).

I use Firefox 60.0.2 with uBlock Origin 1.16.10 and NoScript Version 10.1.8.2.

I hope this information will be helpful in further analyzing the problem.

Best regards Hans

Running Ublock origin, and the attached popped up today...

Links to an EXE that seems to be identical to that which I mentioned previously (http://shipspotting.com/smf1/include/Install.exe). I'm now VERY doubtful this is merely restricted to the ad provider the site uses, but rather a larger issue with the site itself.
SMF doesn't ship with an EXE, no matter the version - Something I know as I run a number of sites running SMF software... So that installer should definitely NOT be there!

The popup links to a file that contains a Trojan, classified as "UDS:Trojan-spy.Win32.SpyEyes.a ". This particular Trojan contains, amoungst other things, a key-logger, a self-installing rootkit to hide it's presence, and the ability to download and install updates pushed from the attacker to the infected machine, without intervention by the end user.
It appears to be designed primarily to help steal login credentials of users, pushing them to the attacker.

Interestingly, the site attempted to download the file from "shipspotting.com/SMF1/include/install.exe" whilst I was editing this post, without a pop-up. Kaspersky total security intervened and prevented the download.

Re this problem with malwarebytes blocking  the site, issue seems to be adware ( malicious software which displays unwanted or corrupt advertising) maybe this is the issue and those using  adblocker are not experiencing the problem . In any case the site seems to have a problem.
