Pop ups and url redirects???

From a variety of pages here at SBF I am getting pop up ads and redirect urls without clicking on anything. Typical “you are a winner...” stuff. I have a screen capture let me know if you want me to post it.

Absolutely nothing here, but not running the virus magnet known as Windows . . . also using an ad blocker, so don't see those either . . .

have you checked to make sure your antivirus software is up to date or it is not software on your computer that is causing it? does it only happen on this forum and not any other web pages?

Both Android (tablet) and computers (Linux) are clean . . . nothing else used here . . . And I don't just run popup blockers - it's a dynamic spam/ad site blacklist by FQDN/IP . . . seems to catch all of it . . .

iPhone gets the popups. Nothing on Windows 10 pc, Mac, or Hackintosh.

Wake me up when the snow's done...

nothing here on win 10 or android. Have ad blockers on. Sometimes a virus can cause redirects. My wife had a browser hijacker virus a while back, even with anti virus up to date. Only solution was to restore her PC with a system image.

These are a result of “bad” ads on SBF that include JavaScript to load the redirect.
