    Cleared after trying to list them.Went back to them and the tally had disappeared.

    Have to say, thought it was the deft hand of Adam

    Mine went into the billions earlier, after deleting the spam.
    Cleared itself.

    Has happened on other vbulletin forums.
    Looking into it.

    I thought this number looked familiar.
    it is (2^32) +1
    or 100000001 in base 16.

    I guess something like this probably happened:

    (uint64)((uint32)0 -1)) + 2;

    If the number had ended in ...295 then a simple case of 0 - 1.
    The interesting part is the conversion to a 64-bit integer afterwards.

    A big bug for a simple message counter :)

    Hello Adam/any Modertor,

    I had this number of supposed notifications, it cleared when I clicked on 'Your Notifications'.

    However, I have subsequently noticed certain words in forum members 'Messages' are underlined; usually small words like 'book', 'failed', etc. When you place the cursor to hover over the word an advertisement can be seen. The main advertisement is for a iPhone 5, but the adverts are not limited to this.

    See the word 'book' at Message # 52...

    Is this a generic forum wide problem?

    Best,

    Steve.

    I don't think the forum notification number glitch and your link problem are directly connected, Steve.
    Have you run a malware scanner? as on first impression it sounds more like a bit of mal-buggery.
    eg. ' book' doesn't highlight/link for me:

    Obviously all things are possible, but I'm pretty sure we're clean at the mo.
    Any others getting link-spam that persists after a malware scan?
