So, this pop-up was randomly displayed in a new tab in my Firefox browser a moment ago. After an extensive scan of my system using Windows Defender and Malwarebyte's Premium, I found nothing. Upon further investigation into this popup, I've found it to be unique in the fact that I failed to find anyone else exhibiting a similar URL and pop-up method. Any ideas on how to find the source/remove whatever is causing this popup?

Additional note: I've been reading into potential sources and apparently 'The Moon Virus/Worm' could be a potential cause. However, my router is a NetGear and is apparently patched to the latest firmware.

I think the issue is from my router. I'm a fairly safe browser, so, I don't think these logs are necessary.

I wanted to check your DNS with that.

I just noticed, I have the NetGear DGN1000v3-3DDAUS router and it's firmware is: 1.0.0.1_0.0.24AU. However, according to the official NetGear site, the latest firmware patch is: 1.0.0.22.

Whenever I check the Update Firmware button on my router, is says it's the latest version. Any thoughts?
