Default Possibly malicious pop-up?

Hi guys, just been scrolling through CP on an average Saturday night and I've had this pop-up 3 times in the past 30 minutes or so.

Spoiler!


"A username and password are being requested by ultimatehockeysource.com. The site says: 'Stopped'"

Anyone have a clue what this could mean? Mods? I wasn't dumb enough to enter anything.

Thanks!

I'm scrolling on mobile and I just got it again twice in the span of minutes. Getting worse.

Someone had an image from that domain as their sig image instead of hosting it on imgur or similar, and that website looks like it's no longer in operation and has a password up, so when you view the thread and it tries to show the image, you see the password prompt when your browser tries to get the sig image.

Nothing malicious, and I've removed that image from the user's sig.
