Very likely; it also appears on at least Chrome as well.

It's ransomware, don't click it. We have someone on it.

That's interesting. I use Firefox and my antivirus notified me it blocked malicious things and it never actually showed me that message.

As far as I'm aware, its fixed now. The site was attacked. Code was inserted into the board style.

I took it down, removed it. It's all clear now.
This is a signature....
