This site came up as a result of a yahoo websearch.  The page displays Windows Security Center, like an image from the Windows OS.  A little dialog popup asks to install a virus cleaner, claims a trojan has been detected.  When closed another popup comes up.  When that one is closed, the first one appears again and the cycle repeats.  I could not close the tab and had no control over the Seamonkey program. Had to use xkill; but then whe I restarted Seamonkey it immediately went back to the same problem (probably session restore) Finally I had to use xkill and restart X, and select a new session for Seamonkey.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  go to http://178.239.48.100
2.
3.



I should not have lost control of the program.  Dialogs will sometimes take all input until they are closed, but this should not be possible from a webpage.
