Default WTF is this message???

This just popped up a second ago as I logged in to CF



I hit cancel since it looks so odd but can someone explain this? Is it real or malware or what?

This is malware, DO NOT install anything like that

I also encountered something like that a few days back on my laptop going to CF, not sure why?

I doubt any admin from CF would intentionally do that, so I am not entirely sure what is causing it. Just don't install or download anything that it tells you to.

I'm going to do a virus scan just to be safe because sometimes with messages that pop up it doesn't matter what you click it will still put crap on your computer
