Connect to The server static.youchoose.net

For the last couple of hours every time I open the Sailnet Community home page I get a small popup window which states:

The server static.youchoose.net at Please enter your username and password requires a username and password.

Warning: This server is requesting that your username and password be sent in an insecure manner (basic authentication without a secure connection).

The popup window resembles those that open when you have a subscription to an online service with a space for typing a user name and a space for typing a password. I have to click cancel at least a dozen times on this popup window for the popup to disappear and for me to be able to navigate the Sailnet pages, once its gone it dosn't reappear unless I close Sailnet and then open it again. Does anyone know what may be causing this? It does not happen on any other website I visit except Sailnet.com. It appears rather suspicious.
