Description of problem

Hi guys.

This was reported by one user yesterday, I tested it and it happens the same with me (Only in Chrome, tested Mozilla Firefox as well, no other browsers tested).

Opening the page (www.cbrportugal.com) in a private (incognito) window, after 5 seconds it automatically redirects to an adult site.

This does not happen in a non private window.

This thread has been made into an only topic.

Thank you very much for providing a solution and a detailed description for this problem, because I found it very hard to describe what really happen.
I will try my best and use the solution suggested by the administrator.
Since I am a new user in using forumation, I was wondering can I ask for your help if I am struggle with any steps in the solution?

Thank you very much and sorry for my late reply.

Best,

Also it's happening in Firefox for some users too.

Where on the forum is the Redirection Occurring: Home page
Which Device(s) are You Using: PC, Smartphones

Description:
I was the user who reported there is a 're-direct problem to adult sites'.
A minute ago, I have just tried to access my forum from the internet app on my phone.
Two messages pop up: (a) An advert of gambling websites and then it automatically re-directs to the gambling website; or (b) a warning message saying there is an virus within the forum.

Additions: I have used the Window Defenders to scan my PC after I have access the forum, and the result comes out green and clear. (The PC is safe).

Hello everyone,

Just an update for you, this problem is being worked on and should be resolved in a few days.

In the meantime we would like to continue to ask everyone for their continued patience until then.

Regards,
- Brandon and the rest of the Forumotion team

Hello everyone,

Can you tell us if the redirections to adult websites are still effective? Normally this is not the case because we applied some changes last week regarding advertisement. For the moment, our advertising network is cleaning all the campaigns to be sure it's not gonna happen... The situation will be 100% solved today or tomorrow.

Best,

The Godfather

I'm so sorry I did not get back to you in this. Yes the problem is fixed. It was a problem with his browser I think.
