For me (and some previous posters) it seems to happen most on mobile?
For me, it's ipad or iphone.
Browser is chrome or safari usually.

I thought maybe just my particular phone or tablet got a "virus", but it seems like other people get it sometimes, too!

I have not had it happen on my desktop work computers yet (I've got both PC and Mac).

Will post a screenshot here when it happens again...

I think the most annoying thing is that it disables the back button. You can not return to the forum unless you retype the forum's URL into the browser window, and even that does not always take, the first time. I also noticed that the URL changes...it is not always the same URL they are sending you to...pretty tricky!

Can you help me with my issue? Is there some reason my username and password won't work to log me in on my phone, but works on two different computers? This is the only site where I've had a problem. I have an iPhone 7 with iOS 11.2.

I just got redirected 16 times in a row. These were the two screenshots I grabbed of what I was redirected to. I’m on an ipad, using safari.

Here's a list of all the domain names that I've seen so far, and in this thread...
they either bought a bunch of domains, or they are "masking" the URL somehow...?

labelmfreegift.icu

maplestorymfreegift.icu

freegiftsjoiningsky.icu

news.luckstarclub.com

bestcardreader.icu

Here is an article from Inc about this, and below, an excerpt from the article:
https://www.inc.com/bill-murphy-jr/youve-won-a-1000-amazon-gift-card-sorry-no-you-havent-but-heres-how-to-stop-those-annoying-pop-up-ads.html

"In short, the spam ads involve malicious code being inserted into the software that virtually all publisher websites use in order to run programmatic advertising--basically, fast-loading (in theory) automated ads.

Vox summarized what happens effectively. The ad serving experience starts out as it's supposed to, and takes no more than a few seconds. A publisher's website alerts its ad server that it has space available on a newly loaded page (like the one you're looking at). Within seconds, or fractions of a second, the software manages automated bids that advertisers make for that space. However, as Vox explained:

"Unbeknownst to our ad server or the publisher of the article, one of the ads that loaded on the page [in a case where the spam ads pop up] contained malicious code. Once that ad was loaded, the code triggered the popup that I mentioned above, and when you clicked to dismiss it, it redirected you to the site."

They recommend fixing it by clearing out your browser (see below)...
I don't know if the forum can actually go and weed out the malicious code in the popup advertising!

"Clear your cookies, cache, and browser history on Apple and Android phones, which should make it all go away.

iPhone or iPad (using Safari)
1. Go to Settings from the home screen, and then click Safari.
2. Scroll down to Advanced. Tap that, and then tap Website Data.
3. From there, scroll down and tap, Remove All Website Data, and confirm that you want to delete all data.


iPhone or iPad (using Chrome)
1. Open Chrome, then tap on the triple dot menu.
2. Click on History, and then click Clear Browsing Data.
3. You can choose from among clearing Browsing History; Cookies, Site Data; Cached Images and Files. Then hit Clear Browsing Data at the bottom.


Android (using Chrome)
1. Open Chrome, then tap the triple dot menu.
2. Go to Settings, and then Privacy.
3. Then hit Clear Browsing Data, which will be the big button at the bottom.
