Is it just me?

It's happening on my phone, I click on a thread and instead of opening it sends me to some dodgy porn site.

It's not every time, but it's happened twice in 24hrs. I'm not tech savy is it my IPhone?

Me too, just and twice last night. It's happened to me on preloved as well a while back but I think that was on my desk top PC not my phone.

Sorry folks! That must be quite alarming.

Can you give us a bit more info about what happens? Is it the same thread every time, or is it happening on different threads? If you can bear it, could you send us a screenshot to the site you're being redirected to?

We're just going to move this thread to Site Stuff.

Hi

It was on two different threads one last night and one this morning, both in chat. each time it didn't open a new window on my phone it just opened as if it was the thread opening but when it came up it was er rather rude!

The first one was videos with a caption about inserting cucumbers! I shut it straight away so can't remember much else.

This mornings didn't even open as I noticed it was redirecting me again and I shut it as soon as I saw the website was either 'ewank' or 'wanke' or something with a 'wank' and an 'e'.

I'll return if it happens again.

<hopes this information is for tech reasons and not just to make me write rude stuff!>

Arf - reading my post back it does rather sound like I was asking for all the gory details blush

We'll do what kind can to find out what's happening, but if there's any more info (techy info obviously) you can provide, then please let us know.

Is there a risk to this happening to Pc's and laptops as well as phones?

WorraLiberty Sat 16-Aug-14 17:00:26

I don't know if it's of any help, but I'm using a PC (Google Chrome) and it's not happened to me at all.

Do you have an anti virus on your phone?

Waltons Sat 16-Aug-14 17:07:23

PC and IE10, no problem here.

I did get a few odd redirects a couple of weeks ago, but not porn (shopping sites) and they stopped fairly quickly so I didn't report. Will report if they return!

Squeegle Sat 16-Aug-14 17:09:34

It happened to me last night. Ewank! Not happened today though. I hope I won't be charged or anything!

LegoCaltrops Sat 16-Aug-14 17:10:38

I've not had this (yet), & I do have anti virus on my tablet & phone, both of which are Samsung running on Android, using the mobile site.

RedErik Sat 16-Aug-14 17:13:51

This is happening to me me too. I have an android phone and using internet explorer.

lucjam Sat 16-Aug-14 17:16:52

Android phone using Chrome. Was in Switzerland when it happened on Thursday. Was a pair fake tits. I turned it off as was worried I had Chris. Mr happened since.

lucjam Sat 16-Aug-14 17:19:12

Virus not Chris! Don't think I even know a Chris!

Have just had to apologise to my OH for accusing him last night, blaming him for looking at filth and inadvertently giving it access to my phone via our wifi. Seems its not him after all... <skulks off with tail between legs feeling very guilty> blush
