Odoo is the world's easiest all-in-one management software. It includes hundreds of business apps:
CRM | e-Commerce | Accounting | Inventory | PoS | Project management | MRP | etc.
I started from scratch with Odoo 8 (saas) with a free account for max. 2 users. Suddenly, when going to the website, I see 2 banners on it with "Ad by GoSave". Is that normal?
Also, when clicking on some links in one of the modules of Odoo (not the website, but modules like Sales, General Ledger etc...), a new tab opens with commercial messages. What is the purpose of that?
Looks to me as if the Odoo SAAS is hacked.
PS: even on this forum/help page, I see 3 banners !!!
Hi, Frank Leysen! Gosave is indeed a risky adware. Those pop-ups and banners are brought in by Gosave and really annoying. But, it won't disappear itself. You have to clear its extension, show hidden files and remove all its files. After that, try clearing the browser cookies and delete its items in the registry. If you have more than one browser in the system, check them all to see whether this nuisance has taken over them all.

AFAIK this is not normal behavior. I haven't seen any of this before and also have never heard of it before.
Also on this page no banners are visible for me.
Saying that Odoo SAAS is hacked doesn't strike me as a possibility, because then there should be a flood of complaints and I would also see ads now. Is it possible that you installed something of late which wasn't as fresh as you have expected? It looks more like an unwanted browser addon or virus which is making you Odoo look bad.
Did you try running a antivirus software like AVG? You might want to try to online version, just google for it.
You can also uninstall all the software you installed from when this behaviour started.
