Default New Password Popup

I started getting popups on quite a few aviation sites that ask for a username and password. I've never seen these popups before. What is causing this?

Here's one site that's affected, with this popup wording:
"http://airportwebcams.net is requesting your username and password. The site says: “Access Restricted (pwrestrict)”>

We are a radio site not an IT site. Not to be rude, but all we can do is guess on this kind of thing. Here is a educated guess for you though: It is called security. The sites wish more security and control over access of their data hence requirements of ACTUAL MEMBERSHIP! Heck, we do it here for access to full features such as abilities to download from our DB to your scanner directly via your programming software. Though we do charge a small fee that is very much worth it.

Some of the sites affected have webcams with ATC audio. I never had to sign in on these sites before. Problem is you can't join the site because all you get is the popup, and if you close it out it just says access denied.
