Weird popup thing

Post  hime on Tue Aug 05, 2014 2:27 pm

OK so is anyone else having a problem where you load this webpage, but suddenly you get redirected to a page of binary with an adware URL?

(Browser: Chrome)

Maybe I just need to update my blocker or something.  Neutral

 Ack! I'm on some ancient version of Firefox and don't have that problem... I'll try it in IE. ...nope, don't get it there either. I don't get any pop-ups or anything at all. silent Hmm.

Oh, by the way everyone, I'm about to rush off to catch a train and I'm going to be in the middle of nowhere for  a few days so won't have much access to here. I've made Woofie an admin for the time being, so I'll ask him to keep an eye on the place. >> Maybe then he'll actually post, too... Smile

I get that sometimes, too (also on chrome)

The only other site this happens on to me is imgur.

Using fairly up to date Firefox, no issues here. Sounds like it pretty much is a Chrome thing. Suspect

I've never had any pop-ups (using IE).

Does it happen on any particular pages, or just random ones? And does it happen when you're logged in or when you're viewing as a guest? Forumotion staff seem to say there shouldn't be any pop-up ads on the forums...  scratch

Just when I load the front page. It hasn't been doing it today, though. I wonder if some banner ad has a weird chrome bug in it.

It's completely random (for me, at least). Both logged in and when viewing as guest.

To be fair, it's EXTREMLY random. Like, it's only happened about twice to me so far
