I'm using Firefox and each time I visit this forum I'm prompted to enter credentials for accessing virteq.com site (see attachment).


I see it's being used as some skinning solution so it's not essential, I think it should be removed since their site could be compromised (this authentication prompt is not normal behaviour).

When the code is injected, there is a reference to a protected resource "http://virteq.com/profile_picture.png"they probably protect this resource, and asking the basic authentication. chrome will ignore but FF will ask the credentials to load this image. 


Injecting code is very suspicious, could redirect a user to specific place and steal some data. This is an ofending code for me.
