    I got it also. I clicked cancel. But later when I opened my Paypal account, I got a root directory or something before I got my actual Paypal Login page and was afraid to login for fear that it would then be phished. My bank account has 2 layers and no strange happenings there. I am wondering if the Paypal "event" was just a coincidence or if that thing that came with the Diirectv email was in fact in my computer although I had cancelled and deleted it.

    I didn't get it, but may still get it. Checked junk mail and inbox with nothing showing up.

    Delray...
    It might be very harmless, but I shouldn't have to do research to find out why I got the message when phishing scams are everywhere.

    I deleted the email too.

    Just registered for this. Ignore the *, I can't post a url without five posts.:mad:

    I got the pop-up in a mail from DIRECTV yesterday. I added h*ttp://corp.quris.co*m to my BlockSite and Adblock Plus lists for Firefox, then revisted the page today.

    The pop-up seems to be caused by an image at the following address:
    h*ttp://corp.quris.com/directv/2009/4L/0903/images/4L_sports_header.jp*g

    Likely it is behind a password protected area and whoever put the email together just goofed.
