Re: Email Notice Popups in Browser

Cox appears to inject a script into the head of any page (on a timer?) that creates a div/iframe with a 'popup' notification with no way to opt-out.
<script src="http://184.178.98.101/static/FloatingContent/243/floating-frame.js" type="text/javascript"></script>




I do use cox's DNS server but to my knowledge that wouldn't be used for how this injection is being done.

Trying to load the script from outside of cox's network will give you a 403 error.

How did you find the above script (it's not in the page source of the webpage they hijacked on my machine)? A much larger amount of javascript was loaded from another directory, as well (and, in my case, everything came from 184.178.98.52).
