How can I get rid of this annoying pop-up?

Every time I click on a post to read, this box pops up:



I have no idea why, but keep dismissing it as I don’t know what it is but it is very persistent! I have tried logging in and out of both the forum and GW main site, powered down my ipad, but no luck.

Anyone else getting this or have any ideas how to get rid?

    Anything to do with computer-speak is gobbledegook to me, but this might make sense to you.

    @pansyface, much of it is gobbledygook to me too, but brilliant, thanks, that forum seemed to think it was a safari browser update issue, so I stabbed at a few options on the safari menu, including clearing my browsing history, temporarily blocking and unblocking cookies and resetting security preferences and something I think (fingers crossed) has worked, it seems to have gone...  :)

    I suspect its malware.

    I've been using this piece of software for years - there is a free version which is all I've ever neded.
