Just a few moments ago, I clicked my bookmark in Chrome to come to the forums, and I got a blue screen that looked like DOS running in the background, and an error pop up stating "the site you are trying to visit has been infected, but click here to allow us to disconnect your internet connection, it is still possible to save your data" The mouse was moving on its own all over the screen and wouldn't responds. Since I have a touchscreen, I touched the X and closed the browser. I then noticed my bookmark changed from orange to blue, the color of the "error" background. I used searched orange tractor talks in google, it brought me to the forums, and my icon on my bookmark went back to orange. Not sure if it's a site thing or something weird on my end, I use norton antivirus, and this is the first time I've ever gotten anything like this.

It sounds to me like you have some malware on your PC. You may want to do a virus scan on your computer.

Very unlikely anything to do with OTT.
I've never had any issues like that.
It's not spam, it's malware that's causing your issues.

I would suggest you use another malware detection program to find it.

It sounds like you guys need a VPN along with the Dissenter browser.

Everything is normal on my end.
Maybe your browser got hijacked?

It only did it once, and when I closed it and immediately came back, the site and my bookmark went back to normal. I have done a couple different scans, nothing found except 9 tracking cookies.

Looking in the browser history, mine was also fisham.site Not seeing much online about anything called fisham.site

Are you sure on the spelling?
I find nothing on that domain name, or any other issues with anything close?

I'm sure that's what it said, but I cleared it out of my history so I can't verify that 100%. I didn't find anything on it when I searched either.

I just had the same issue described above. I'm on my work PC - it could have some other issues but I don't visit many non work related sites. When I do it's legitimate stuff like OTT, ESPN, etc.

Ok checking around everything seems ok on this end. Could someone who sees this again do me a favor and provide these details?

1/ A screenshot of what you are seeing (making sure the URL is visible too).
2/ The browser you are using and version.

That will help narrow this down a bit.
