Sites attacking my ipad

Post#1 » Tue Mar 13, 2018 2:16 am

I keep getting hammered with spam claiming I won an amazon gift card and it locks up the browser. I can’t read anything on here and this is my 8th attempt to post this so I hope it goes through. Did someone upload malicious code to this site? What’s going on....

Could it be something else? I have been on this site for a very long time and have never had the issue you describe on my iPad.

I saw this about a week ago too. Had to delete the cache and reinstall the browser to get rid of it. I use dolphin browser to avoid images being downloaded unless I want them. You might also want to make sure your browser app is up to date with patches. It’s either a random ad banner or being injected by a provider or hot spot.

^^ This.

I suspect it is one of the Ads shown at the bottom of this Website webpages.

Simply force close your current Browser, restart Browser, reopen Forum Website.

I am getting the same attack. Every time I click on the players tournament thread, so far not on the other threads I have clicked on. Closed browser and deleted cache and same thing happened.

It’s an ad at the bottom of the site. I hope it goes away soon because I can’t use the iPad browser here.

I’m using the mercury browser for iPad and that pop up hasn’t shown up again. I hope it stays away.
