Issues w redirect/ forum hacked?

For about the last two weeks, about every third time I access the link to JF, I am redirected to some spam site, announcing I won something g or wanting me to click on. Something.

I can exit out, and erase all the links, clear my history and cookies, but it comes back again.

Samsung phone, access through their browser or chrome is same results, ONLY when accessing JF...

Anyone else?

are you viewing the full site or the classic site? The full site with the wall of ads on the right, when there is a bad add that gets through can cause a redirect. I would suggest viewing the classic site without the ads and using a quality adblocker to kill the banner ads When it happens on the pc, you can save the address that it redirects to and attempt to send it to the absentee admins and they should be able to filter out the ad that is causing the issues.

Only ever on my phone/android (never access on a PC) classic view , but straight link to the my account/ my threads link (never go to home page). Have pop up blocker on and anti-malware installed, again, ONLY ever get the redirect when accessing JF, no other sites. I have cleared the cache and cookies and history 4-5 times, has come back only when clicking on JF

Not in the past two days. It would be every 2-4 days before, so I can/will keep you posted

Happened again just now, ironically after I had just cleaned/cleared history and cookies cache.

Immediate redirect this time was listed as overgalladeandotcom. (Actual web link, just didn't type it so that it would show as one), which then automatically loaded about 6 different web pages and sites as quickly as I could close them. All redirects...

I assume it's my phone, but I have have completely cleaned/cleared my phone, and have logged off and cleared the cache, cookies and entire history, then run malware tracer, and it ONLY happens when I access JEEP FORUM again after all that

Only ever JF.

Good for 2 more days, then happened again just now.

Again, to clarify, this is happening AFTER I have the forum open, from the my account section, when I click on the link to open a thread which has new posts, THEN I get the redirect/spam to another malware website.

It is the link in the JF site which triggers it. LITERALLY every other website is fine.

I fail to see how this isnt a JF issue???

Next time you get redirected, can you copy the url of the page you are taken to and send it to me via PM?

Any updates or any further info on this? It's still happening every two to three days. Completely deleted everything and reset, reloaded forum and still happening. Again, ONLY with JF, and ONLY after I've already logged into the site, and clicked on one of the site links to access (for example) a thread where I've posted, that shows a new post . This morning it even happened when. I clicked on the link to go to the forums directly.

So I am still experiencing this issue, a little further info...

pop ups are blocked on my phone

Third party cookies are blocked

History and site settings /cache have been repeatedly cleared and cleaned

I ONLY get this when accessing JF, and when it happens, if I immediately click out and go to clearing my history and cookies, it will do it again and again everytime I click on anything on the website

I can't even get the actual web address anymore, because if I click on that to try and get it, it will open another page.

Again, this has only happened on the jeep forum page/link, EVER.

Happening to me too and sometimes I get something tgat tries to install a subscription to a calendar of some kind. One time it actually worked and I had events and reminders every twenty minutes for infinity. These calendar reminders were pops with an associated noise. I finally figured out what happened and deleted the additional calendar tgat had been added.

I get it weird results when I click on the link on the top of the page that says Forums.
