Webpage spam/ scam redirect


I keep getting this auto redirect many time viewing this site. It happens on multiple devices. Is anyone else having this issue?

Well, if you ask me, its this forum which is corrupted, and causing these pop ups on our computers.

DTR needs to investigate and correct this so that we can continue coming here daily. I don't frequent poorn, or many other websites, and I also don't like being asked if I want this to be translated into Ukrainian..

Lary? Can you look into this????

Thanks.

I have never seen any of this stuff myself, I have no clue where it is coming from but I will have it looked into.

A large group of sites on the web are trying to track down this scammy ad and stomp it out. Here is a statement from Vox.com and they are doing essentially what we are:
https://product.voxmedia.com/2018/1/...to-secure-them

We are working hard to find the root cause and have blocked various ad partners to slow these down. It seems to happen more on Iphones but we have a couple android reports.

This is an ongoing process and I will keep you updated.

I was still getting that pop up constantly for a few days after I deleted my cache, disabled chrome, powered it on and off. Nothing worked.


Had to do a hard reset on my tablet, and so far its gone. Factory reset the tablet I lost all settings and photos, but at least for now it's not happening anymore. Time will tell, I guess.

That lasted a few hours. Not getting the four virus thing anymore. Now I get the " you have won......" which prevents backing out, just like the other one did. These people who do this ..... Really suck monkey snot.
