Web page Redirect on this forum

Post by Trublu »

Has anyone experienced redirecting to another web page when clicking on topics or pages from this website?
If so just confirm with yes.

Yep on the phone. Happens with every link or button press. Hacked with code injection? Similar happened recently on another forum I use. Might pay to change passwords.

Happens on my tablet but not my PC but I think it depends on what security software you are using so I recommend you guys update or use better security antivirus softwaree in the interim.
I have firebox on both tablet & pc but only tablet is displaying symptoms of redirect which has very limited security software.
I have sent a few messages off to Admin & Owner to look into this forum which has been compromised by a hacker, very annoying at times getting redirected.
Also remember connection to this forum like others is not secured something I've always noticed since joining so just make sure you have decent security software to protect yourself'.

I will update you guys when I get more info on what is happening.

I haven’t experienced any redirects on my Mac using Firefox or Safari. There aren’t any redirects on my iPhone either.

The forums have been infected with malicious code for about a week now. The redirects are entirely random, sometimes not at all and sometimes it will be every link. Only the site admin can fix this.

Just an update for you guys Admin knows of the problem and has set about getting it rectified, I think he may have already fixed it as my web browser is working ok with no problems.
I will post a further update when I get a confirmation from admin regarding this matter.

Cheers.

Yes all appears ok now, I stopped using the forum just in case.

What I noticed when we were being directed was the mouse pointer didn't turn from an arrow into a hand when hovering over topics, it is now back to normal. ;)

All good for us as well so not sure what's going on so keep the feedback coming.

Was a bit slow getting on to this problem as I was away over east on business so apologies for not being able to sort it sooner for all those
who were quick to criticize .
