Happens irrespective of whether Forum is signed into or not.

Selecting [block] just generates another popup, same domain, different prefix.

Happens irrespective of which browser is used, 4 different browsers tested.

Hello harlan4096,
The alerts/popups only appear on Kaspersky Community Forum pages....
Surely you don't mean Kaspersky ADWARE infection😲🤔?

Of course not... Wi-Fi without password? or with non-secure protocol?

Hello Harlan4096,
Wi-Fi without password? Nope!
Non-secure protocol? Interesting, considering KTS is providing "defence".
It's due to something very specific to K Community site...
{ ... // script that includes algolia analytics functions }
