PostSubject: Re-directing me to scams   Fri Jul 15, 2016 10:35 pm

I don't know if it has to do with the forum or not, but every so often (since today) when opening the forums it'll re-direct me to a scam page. And it's random, too. Sometimes I'll be browsing the forums and it'll re-direct me.

I've lost a post in the rp to it (which I spent ages on Sad ), and it's getting really annoying. scratch I'll be surprised if I'm even able to post this. Please help!

This has been happening to me too. Haven't lost any posts from it yet, but it's annoying. It only happens on this forum, so it's definitely a problem with the website rather than your computer. I'd still do a virus scan just in case anything slipped by when you got redirected.

That's very odd. I've had similar things happen to me when I've had a virus in the past, but more than one person experiencing it on this site is very unusual.

It may have something to do with advertisements, as I have a pretty good ad block and I haven't experienced anything usual here.

I assume it's the advertisements. I scanned, and there were exactly zero viruses detected. I just hope this gets resolved soon.

If it's something that's still getting through even though you have Adblock turned on then it's on Forumotions end. Sadly I don't think there's a way to get rid of it and it'll work itself out eventually.

I took down my ad block on this site for a little while and still didn't experience anything. But Forumotions isn't that dirty of a site and that kind of stuff shouldn't be happening.

It hasn't been happening since I downloaded ad-block, but it tells me something is trying to pop up.

In recent days, I've been getting popup messages from the site telling me I need to download Adobe Flash. In one instance, my computer was suddenly in the middle of downloading Flash (or something claiming to be Flash), and I didn't even click anything. I exited everything because my anti-virus issued a warning message.

This problem has gotten so bad now that I can barely use the site. I'm getting harmful redirects with almost a third of the times I click a link to anywhere on this forum, including when I make a post and I'm automatically brought to the "your post was posted" page and then back to the thread.

What version of the site on mobile are you using (theres two, a "simplified" one and the default one that looks like it does on desktop)?

I'd advise all who use computers to install an adblock. I haven't gotten any problems, and when Spiegel installed adblock his problems disappeared as well.
