Pop ups on this new site format

Does anyone else get pop up ads on this site that says you won this or that? This is the ONLY site I get them on whether I am logged in or not. It is very annoying and keeping me away from the forum. Let me hear if you get them I thought it was just me but this is the ONLY SITE I get them on.

I'm not getting them but as a supporting member that may be why. If any of the other non-supporting members can chime in on that they may know.

I'm not a supporting member here, but I don't get any popups, but I do run an Ad-Blocker.

YMMV

Sorry but until this issue is addressed I will not be using the forum any longer. It isn't worth it I having to close the page and reopen it 5 times just to post this. Anyone feel free to private message me when it is fixed, I'll get it in my email. Here is a screenshot of the photo. Again please email me when it's fixed I'll miss you guysPop ups on this new site format-img_0294.jpg

@Administrator would be the one to deal with this. It's above my authorization level. It almost sounds like something other than the forum software for it to be that invasive.

Buddy I'll PM you so you get this. But that looks like a malware or virus in your Mac not a forum issue.

That's exactly what I was getting at in my post Davhamm. Something that intrusive doesn't sound like a forum feature as it would cause exactly this kind of reaction in most users.

What is interesting to note is it only appears in this forum. That would lead me to believe that whatever this application is that it has a trigger associated with this forum. If @Buddy could try the solsticeforum.com and see if he has the same problem there.

Either way, I would be doing a virus/adware scan on that system and see what comes up.

I am writing this on my IPad and when I am not signed in I don't get those pop ups either. I agree looks like something got installed that shoudn't have.

Just hopped on to let everyone know that people on the camera.net site are having the same problems, the website is the same as ours. No one knows for sure but in my opinion our website is so ad driven I think someone snuck a ad into our site that works this way with this type of site. Just for kicks I had my grandkids try it from their own iPads and low and behold same crap. And they have nothing to do with my network or my iPad. Seems weird to me. I'll pop on once and a while to see if it was fixed.

Interesting. Hopfully the @Administrator will be on here, see your complaint, and chime in. If I don't see them respond by later this week, I'll be sure to shoot them a PM.

I belong to both the Solstice and the Sky forums. I dont like the software because it is slow and hard to navigate.

BUT I am having no problems, running unprotected with the most vulnerable system, Win 10.

So I find it hard to believe its this sites software.

The fact that his grandkids are also being attacked just leads me to believe more rather than less that he has the virus and is spreading it to his relatives with whom he is obviously in contact regularly.

Also, this site software is one of the least used for forums. I belong to MANY Forums and this and the Solstice site are the only two using this software. So it would be strange that someone would write a virus to attack a little used software.

Looks like someone compromised the ad's again.
These Autoforum sites are very insecure and have about 20 different plug ins running.
Connect to the site running Firefox with a script blocker and you will see just how bad it is.
