    Anyone else getting a ad redirection sometimes

    When I am on my mobile it sometimes likes to navigate to a spam ad page. It gets pretty annoying since I cant reproduce it the same way each time. I just had one pop up on my computer now too so I believe the site has malware. Is there anyway the mods can get someone from the hosting provider to scan the account? Securi shows it outdated but no malware but there's no way for me to scan the files without actually being on the server.

    I'm a 99% Tapatalk client on here and haven't noticed anything changing. I also wasn't suffering in the recent rash of thread caching issues.

    I'm a lazy member. I no longer upload full rez pics to my cloud and then link them. Just let Tapatalk client crush them and upload natively to the forum.

    They really shouldn't make things so effortless for me. Lol

    Tapatalk had a huge vulnerability a few years ago and I refuse to use the app. I prefer mobile sites but there's definitely malware on the site

    I know we both know we could argue nothing is without vulnerability at some point.

    Hacking is a worldwide 24/7/365 phenomenon!

    But I get your point.

    @sleipnir If this happens again, can you try get the redirects URL so we can send it to be investigated and blocked?

    I have a number of blocking additions on my browsers, so the site is always clean for me. I visited before on a different browser and it was a fricken mess! Crap everywhere. This forum is just not up to par. Now it makes sense when we get these 50 posts of selling xxxx crap.
