Saw this dropdown this morning, requesting my username and password to be passed to a third party! Have no idea whether it came through an EhMac hack or a problem with Firefox on my computer. Just posting to let people know:

DeWitt Industries is a Texas based graphics design company.

Right where the ehMac logo should be. Does seem it might be browser related if it dropped from the bookmarks bar.

While ehMac allows some really dodgy advertisers including at one point the trojan MacKeeper, it seems a bit unlikely they would allow them to pop over the logo.

Are you using an adblocker?

Yes, I'm using an adblocker and I have the legacy ad exemption for my account. It would not let go of the page until I killed that set of tabs.

Seems like a rather honest hack though, promising that the information would go to a third party.
