      I have configured ad block to completely block the div/span at the top of the page.
      That way no ads show up at all.

      Sorry about that.

      Same chrome version, Elgin IL, also got it at another location in IL.

      It seems to only display once and I can't get it back again, just tried downloading firefox and it doesn't do it. This is definitely not served via an ad, it has to be malicious JS on the Vortex server. Wish I wouldn't of closed out so I could see the source code of the offending page.

      It vortex ever planning on adding https support?

      Three days after the first post and this is still here??!!! I just got the Firefox "update" prompt. Fortunately, I knew better than to open it but it is inexcusable to allow this to go on for so long.

      May 20 4:12pm... I logged on to VWVortex and "Chrome_59.3.8.1.js" asked to be downloaded and I stupidly clicked Yes. But then I googled "Chrome_59.3.8.1.js" and it led me to this thread. I didn't click on the file, I deleted it, and then emptied trash. I'm thinking I am ok since I never clicked on the file to open it...

      I've been seeing this for about a week as well. I've only seen it from Windows machines, usually just the first time I visit the site for the day. Is there anything I can gather that would help troubleshoot this? I can probably even get a packet trace if it would help.

      If you can gather that info please do. I have not been able to replicate this personally yet. It has been escalated on our end as far up as I could get this and our ad partners have been investigating as well.
