Recently some kind of bug on nba.com site started to ask for user name and password. It says “A username and password are being requested by http://www.nba.com. The site says: “ESI Test””
How to remove this annoying message? You can get away with that message clicking cancel couple of times, but this becomes annoying after some time if you watch more than 1 video. Then I tried to view videos while logged on but this didn’t change anything. Messages still pop out for user name and password.
Now it gets interesting, if you type any characters into this pop up box and you have Roboform installed (it’s password management addon for Firefox), the name for a new passcard is called Questionmarket. After little Googling I found that Questionmarket is some survey service but reputation of this company is questionable. There were few pages with info how to remove Questionmarket from your computer. It suggests that some kind of spyware and malware is involved. Visitors of nba.com complains in the comments about this issue but this problem lasts for more than a week now.
