"Image Not Found" icon appears with 5.24 - linked to www.hbo.com! Ad banners planned?

After updating from 5.21 to 5.24, a green "image not found" icon appeared right on the skin that I use (see picture)!

The tool tip text for the icon is "Visit 6 Feet Under Website" and it links to http://www.hbo.com/

That icon is not visible with other skins. This one ("Red Pearl") is quite special because of its shape, and I guess, that for that reason this new (not yet official?) ad icon(?) shows here and not with other skins.
I have been using this particular skin since a long time with Winamp 5, so I am quite sure the icon does not come from the skin.

Let's get rid of it! How can it be disabled?

5.23 & 5.24-specific bugs/issues

-Some 3rd-party modern skins may show weird green scrollbars or 'image not found'. This is due to a bugfix which breaks a 3rd-party skinner hack/oversight, and therefore said 3rd-party skins will need to be updated by their respective authors. More info (including temp workaround solution) here and here.

See if there is an email-address that comes with the skin and kindly ask the author to update the skin.

It shouldn't be much work to get this going again. You can even try to apply a fix by yourself if you advanced enough. See DJ Egg's link for reference.

Thanks for your replies. If I had formulated a different search before I posted here, I probably could have found those.

But where do "Six Feet Under" and the link to hbo.com come from?

Oh, what a coincidence, HBO belongs to Time Warner, as well as Six Feet Under, AOL and Winamp do.

Sounds like you are using a Six Feet Under skin, you, or someone downloaded. There are tons of skins, some are sponsered. Just use a diffrent one.

Count with us!

No, I have never used or installed that.

It must come from somewhere else.

Where should it come from?

From the skin of course. Who wrote the Red Pearl skin?
