Redirection to a spam/virus-website when trying to login

Post by Tyrion on February 27th 2018, 9:13 pm

Hello everyone! I'm new here and I hope I found the correct category for this, if not, please feel free to move this post around.

I'm running 3 forums in total, of which 2 I own and are running fine.
For the thrid I am the second Administrator along with the forum founder. The founder asked me to set up the forum with categories and other settings, so I did, but since some days I discovered a problem at the forum.
When I click on the "log in" button in any browser, at the first time I'm redirected to some sort of Spam/advertisement website. I have to close it an click on "log in" again, before I can actually log in. This redirections is even detected as "potentially dangerous" and "might contain virus/malware" in my Firefox Add-On WebOfTrust, but my Antivirus doesn't show anything.
I added a screenshot of the very spam-site
For better understanding: it's a website for online-casino. I guess it's displayed in german language for me, because I live in germany. Also the forum founder (who lives in Russia) is redirected to commercial websites.
I checked all the settings, but I simply can't find any suspicious scripts in the admin-section of the forum.
Can please anybody help us about this?
Meither me, nor the forum founder want any of these redirections, as our forum is about a children's cartoon, and also we want to ensure the safety of every person who visits the forum.

The forum URL is http://tabalugafans.forum2x2.ru

Thanks in Advance for anyone who reads this.

This sort of popup is normal when your site gets much more busy this will stop you have to get about 5 members and have about 10 post's a day for about 2 weeks then this will go away.

What I did to stop this was to make 3 fake accounts and post on the forum for about a week.
