Windows Security popup question.

I peruse this site on a regular basis and have never had a problem, but since the other day when I click on this link on the site An Unnecessary Thing: Racism Is Alive and Vile and Raising Money For Killer Cop Darren Wilson | Common Dreams | Breaking News & Views for the Progressive Community I get this security popup, posted below. All other links on site work well and no popups, only this site and this particular link, am more curious than worried about it Am using ie 11 but it also occurs in firefox. It goes away when I click cancel 3 or 4 times.

Would this just be an ISP thing?

That is a weird popup,
It almost seems like a malicious attempt at remote access to your machine

Thanks for answering.
That was my first thought. I have uploaded the URL to many different URL safe check sites and all say is OK. Like I said am more curious than worried as it only happens with this link on this site.

Hi,
Because data like logins are sensitive info and the site does not use proper security it would seem it activates the popup,
Possibly someone will test with Chrome to see if the message is triggered using it ?

I don't believe the article it's self is worth the digital space it takes up on the net,
Cheers.

It's likely an issue in the config for the admin. I have gotten those before, usually go away when the website owner sees it

Will not prompt when using a web based proxy

I don't think it's nefarious, but rather an admin config issue BTW, hit cancel and it goes away. A Guy

Cheers Guy, as I said I wasn't worried,. more curious actually. Have sent website an email informing them but news grows old quick and it probably wont be viewed again anyway.
Cheers.
