Every once in a while I open a page on this site and it gets automatically redirected to a java scam site that is trying to trick me into installing a virus.

 

Is anyone else getting this or is it just me? I'm going to run a virus scan now.

I haven't had that problem, but that might be because I used ad blocker...

I don't get this happening to me at all. Though I tend to use the Wii U internet browser when ever I'm here. :P

When I'm signing in from my mobile phone, I won't be redirected to this site.
Now I re-signed in after deleting my browser credentials on my notebook this ominous site prevented me from finishing my sign in. What's up with that?


Do you read me? Are you prepared?

I use opera and never use adblock on anything, because I want to pay my way on the internet.

That's stupid.

I just got fed up with chromium's recent flash change and constantly crashing my computer.
Firefox is a box of ram leaks and slowdownyourcomputer ware and has been for years.

Shame feld0 isn't here to do anything about this.
I mean, if it was something that hijacked the server he'd care since he's always at mlpf, and it would effect him there, but since it's probably just an advert he has no idea and isn't around to do anything.
