Authentication

I keep getting the message Authentication .....and can go no further. How do I get rid of this?

I'm getting the same thing. It's a pop-up whenever I click anywhere on the site asking for my password for authentication.

You can x-out of the box and not enter anything, but it keeps doing it every time you click. Looks like something broke into the forum site.

I'm going to report my own post here to alert the Admins. ;-)

I had the same thing, but I got rid of mine. I went to the cdn.socialknowledge.com site and then right clicked on that page. I selected "View Page Info." Selected the "permissions" button at the top. I set all permissions to "Block." and then closed my browser and reopened it. The "Authentication" popup went away.
I claim no responsibility other than this process worked for me.

I don't get the site - it says I'm not authorised to access it. Pootling around on Google there seem to be a lot of different forums which are experiencing this problem.

Irritating though it is if I click on "OK" and then on the x at the top right hand corner it goes away so I can write this.

Mad Cook - You clear the pop up first, before right clicking on the page.

I got it on my smartphone. I suspect it's a "phishing" message. I wouldn't enter anything in it, because it could very well be sending your credentials off to some remote spot in Lithuania.
