Redirection to malicious site today on any thread: happens automatically and when I hit "back" I end up in the forum index, not the thread I was viewing.

Just checked, it may not be related to this site, so never mind.

As of today I also experienced this issue.
 
Shortly after loading, any page of this forum would redirect to the domain eu.marketwatchjpm.xyz, making the forum completely unusable for me. It showed a fake prize winning screen using the logo of my internet provider. No other sites did this.
 
I seem to have fixed it by installing Chrome AdBlock.

You probably want to post to this thread if it's ad-related.

Didn't come across as ad-related to me. More like phishing.

 

But since apart from 404KF2 no one else has mentioned this, perhaps it's nothing Autosport can do anything about.

An obsolete 2018 Thread?  I especially liked when they changed the icon next to the Buy Tickets selection and it wasn't tested across browsers so it just filled your screen. Good thing I have Firefox and Safari as back ups.  :lol:

whenever I click on a topic and I'm about to compose a message I get this 70 % offer pop up and it sends me to the top of the threads page after I declined it. Annoying as hell.

(yes, I get that this is not a malicious website, but I'm too lazy to create a new topic, boo-hoo)

mobile version btw

Probably malicious code inserted in an advert served by a third party - as explained by Grayson in the linked thread.

It seemed to go away as quickly as it started, for me.

Second that. The bloody pop-up appeared even when typing this reply.
