Sounds like a persistant or  stored cross site scripting.

Do you know what post you were looking at when it came up. It will probably be a bit of Java or HTML hidden in a post or a user ID.

Martin might be worth checking any new users ID's from the last few days.

It is good to have many buttons on the remote.  I watched NCIS. 
Anyway - HM Revenue offering to pay money back - that's more far fetched a plot than either of the above two.

I am not experiencing any problems at the moment. Is it a possibility that member's computers have been infected?
