    I've been watching this since i first got the redirect/pop up.
    Couple things ive noticed, i'm sure i'm not alone in seeing it, but getting whatever info we can to @Rudy and crew will help them, help us.

    I've yet to see ANY pop upon my Windows based PCs...running both 8.1 and 10.
    With my Chromebook , Galaxy Tab and Galaxy S8 phone, ALL plain Chrome/Android, I had a few days of this being a problem, then intermittent, then gone after the Admins really started working on it. BUT NOT on the chromebook.

    I dont use Apple anything, browsers or products, but it looks like you guys have it worst. HAS ANYONE HAD THIS REDIRECT ON A MACBOOK?

    Wondering, is this is strictly a Mobile platform problem?

    Welp...there goes that theory. :bluduh

    Tablet/phone or chromebook?

    My mobile Android stuff has very basic ad block programs, my book, nothing.

    hey guys - sorry i'm getting hit with it too. Trying to get them turned off until the tech service we've been using (that was working before) can troubleshoot. FWIW i'm getting hit wtih this on a couple other sites I browse, seems the spammers found a new way to get their stuff through undetected.

    thanks for this... we're working on it we use the service Confiant which is a wrapper that sits around the ad tags and when it's a known spammer that is trying to get through they don't serve anything and send it back to the source network. Sometimes the spammers find new ways to go undetected, this is the first time in six weeks we've had an issue since we started working with them, hopefully they'll have a block in place soon. In the mean time we're trying to over rider other networks until they get a fix. working on that...

    Maybe try another source of advertising. This forum uses ads, but they aren't so obnoxious. Banner across the top, one down the side. None in between posts in a thread.

    Please elaborate? I've got newish iPad and iPhone, both running AdBlockPlus in Safari and haven't had an issue with popups or malware in quite some time. Then again, I see NO ads either - not a bad thing IMO. On my MacBook, I run ABP and Avast Security with nothing nefarious getting thru either.

    https://itunes.apple.com/app/adblock-plus-abp/id1028871868 is for IOS if that helps you out.
