Solved Malucious ads hurting business for forumotion

Post by Storytellers CAN Fri 10 May 2019, 19:08

Malicious ads.  I have noticed both my alternate site and one of my sister sites, as soon as you click on their domains, it doesn't take you to the site.  It immediately redirects you to a viral web side and spam.  It concerns me to no end as it may be doing it to guests on my site as well. Others I invited messaged me saying they won't join my active because of the virus warnings. This is not good for drawing people to use or join forumotion. I need my alternate site for testing codes so I don't kill my active site and it had members as well. No wonder they never came back.

This one I get to the login menu only. Past that it redirects

I did clear out my history and cookies. I use chrome. I am on mobile. I tried to use desktop. It still did it. I wonder if its random or something attaches to a URL or IP, because a lot of people join my active site, appear to be active and never show up again. Some informed me of the issue. But my less active sites its almost impossible. Its not good for any of us especially forums starting up or having down times. I invest time into getting us out there.

Okay, I can't delete them now though. I wasn't bumping, just adding to my OP as I was trying to get through and caught screen shots. So can you help me with my issue? I can't access the forums.

Hello normally if a forum does not have a lot of activity is a normal behavior that when entering redirected to an advertising page. That goes when the forum becomes more active. Anyway Enter your forum several times and I did not come out of a redirect. Check your browser, remove all the extensions you have, try other browsers, I did all that and I did not see any redirection

Thank you @juracrese . I was able to access one through an alternative generic browser, which opened the malicious adds in a separate tab. My concern is if this keeps happening to people it deters membership. And why is chrome, who is the most compatible browser, causing issues? Can we do something about it?

I was able to copy this. My other forum the different browsers not working. The members vanished a while back

As I said to me with chrome nor redirected me to any place when I went into http://autumnnuttreehouse.canadaboard.net/

So that's why I'm saying that if you have Chrome browser extensions, you disable extensions

I don't have any extensions. Does the other site give you a redirect? It makes me suspicious of an IP issue. Thank you for your help too.

There is no forum with that address in the database.  When was the last time you logged into that forum?

It's been a year since I got on it. No one was posting and I got too busy. I wanted to get back in and either try to revive or delete, I had tried a few times and got redirect, but . Yes, that works! It must have changed web addresses. Thank you!

Since both addresses are working, may I consider this matter closed?
