Imagebam doesn't seem to be working at all today. Still getting the thumbnails, but not the images.

I've had it happen to me before a year ago. When it happened it came up full screen where I could not close it or go anywhere on my computer. This one was just a webpage and I was able to quickly close it. Nothing has happened since then. No popups or homepage changes or anything. I'm currently doing a virus scan. After that I'm going to run Malwarebytes.

So everyone watch out for Imagebam.
Should be resolved for now, according to ImageBam's admin:

We work with multiple advertisers. A client's server was hacked and the advertisement was replaced with malicious advertisement. From what we know many other websites were affected as well - this was not an issue isolated to imagebam.

Our apologies for any inconvenience.
My conclusion: always use an addblocker for the image hosts, their advertising partners just cannot be trusted.

There have been multiple complaints on ImageBam's support forum, looks like the problem has been fixed - for now . At least I had no trouble uploading the picture below.

I had an odd experience with ImageBam about a week ago. I clicked on a thumbnail in a post here and the page opened in a completely different site, or rather it didn't because Avast blocked it, so I have no idea what was on it. It was called something like bbyzk.clicktracks.com, and I looked up clicktracks.com (or whatever it was) and it was selling those curtain rails that go round hospital beds, but this site had just filched half of its name. I tried clicking on the thumbnail again but it opened as normal, no matter how many times I tried. It wasn't a pop-up though, just some kind of redirection, and I have AdBlock installed so that isn't a surefire protection.

I just uploaded and posted a set of pics using imgbox and all went fine. Perhaps they were down briefly for some periodic routine maintenance or experiencing some momentary glitch, but they seem to be OK and up and running again -- for now!

Yes, I have had this problem that last two days. One in a blue moon might give me the full image. Also .gif's

It could be that they're taking down certain sections for trouble-shooting and/or maintenance. Last night I got a half fill from three posts. Right now I got all the remainder with no problem. Let's hope they're on the way back. Could be that they were attacked too because I got a few disturbing re-directs in the last few weeks.

Exclamation NoScript helps here.

All of this is indicative that you are running Java, in some form or another, perhaps it is switched on in your browser, perhaps you are using a Java-based database, etc.

They also attach scripts to legitimate advertising & services sites that trigger when you visit; telling you that Java (or MS Media Player, etc.) is out of date, and inviting you to update it now.

I learned the hard way to never accept these invitations to update, and eventually decided to just get rid of Java entirely.

Basically you should have a good reason for running Java. For example, I am running some OpenOffice HSQL databases, and they are based on a Java implementation, so I need it for that.

Many browsers switch Java off, as a default, because they regard it as too risky. That was the consequence when Oracle took over from Sun Microsystems as maintainers of Java - they didn't really keep an eye on the ball regarding security, and focused more on extra features. I gather the situation has improved since, but once you blow your reputation...

I think there is no good reason for not updating Java from Oracle (not necessarily to the newest version, but to the last "stable-looking" release), you should make sure though you get it from there, not from some random place. That aside, you should have a good reason for running Java in the first place - if not you might rather want to uninstall it, because it also takes a substantial amount of memory. Working externally (allow Java in a browser) with an older version is generally not a good idea, because older versions may have known security holes. If you just use it internally, like I use my HSQL databases then there is not much point in upgrading, unless the software using it is itself upgraded and needs a newer version to work with.

For web browsing alone Java is not really needed - there are (in relative terms) few Java applets out there on the web these days...
There was a newer version of Java released back in July. But, it was instantly flagged as having serious security flaws. So, it was recommended that nobody 'upgrade' to this newer version until Oracle patched these holes.
The newest version of Java JRE is Java 8u60.

On this computer, I have Java 8u45. I may install the newer version. But, I am still on a v.92 modem. The size of the Java update would take hours for me to download. (Unless I find a version which I can download to a flashdrive when on a faster connection, and installing it on here while off-line.) The main use I have for Java is when connecting to JMeeting; the free webcam website where I exhibit myself occasionally.
I have found that JMeeting still works with this older version. I do have to click on some boxes to allow it to run despite its notice that it is outdated.
If you have NoScript installed (and everybody should - even the TorBrowser includes it, and it wants everybody to have the exact same everything so as to minimize TorBrowser from identifying anybody), Options>Embeddings has a box where you can check/uncheck Java to run or not. I leave that checked until I want to logon to JMeeting.
