100% CPU usage (8 threads) when viewing forum posts

Recommended Posts

In the last few days I have noticed that whenever I visit a post topic the CPU usage suddenly goes up from 1%-5% to nearly 100%. In activity monitor the process is shown as "safari web content". This doesn't happen when viewing a forum or when creating a topic (e.g. right now it's fine), but as soon as I read a post, the insane CPU usage begins. As soon as I close the window, the CPU usage drops to normal.

My system specs: Mac OS X 10.8.5, Safari 6.2.3

Not sure if this is related to this or not... but probably is.  Twice today when reloading a forum page my security suite stopped a cryptominer from executing.  I was gonna make a separate thread but I figure this is the same issue.

Do you have any page source or URLs that the security suite tried to stop? Which page(s) were you looking at?
