This new window keeps popping up when I browse the threads here on the board, taking me out of the forum completely. I have been closing the window, but I'm concerned that others might click ok and accidentally download a virus.
admin , I'm not sure how to report this. Any further advice you can give would be welcome.
Ugh, sounds like a malicious advert. Totally not allowed but they do slip through occasionally.
If it happens again, make a mental note of the time. Close the tab/window and when you are able to get back on the board, click on the link "Report Ad" at the bottom of any page. There are instructions on that link, and more info here if you need it.
I just had a redirect, pop up whatever that wouldn't let me out. I had to turn off my computer to get it to go away. It had a voice over that told me that my whole computer was being hacked by some kind of porn virus that was taking everything but the kitchen sink. I couldn't click out of it at all. The whole page set up used a lot of stuff that looked like a real windows ad, but she said (the message) that I had to call RIGHT NOW to get it to stop.

I got a pop-up on my phone yesterday saying that I had won a prize whenever I tried to view a thread on the board. Around 8:00 am EST. Just FYI. I had to completely exit out of my browser to get rid of it.
