Clicked on "what bra size should my teenage dd be" from the active box on the homepage and the thread came up momentarily, then it redirected to porn.

Nearly saw my breakfast again.

I'm on a Samsung using the mobile site through the normal explorer browser.

I just got redirected to an app site of some kind whilst on another thread (the one about doing 80 mph in a 50 zone), but I clicked off it before it loaded. It redirected through something else to an url which was 'app?????.com' where I'm not sure what the question marks were, sorry!

That happened to me a few weeks ago. Was not impressed.

Just happened to me too - loading next page of a thread using chrome browser on android tablet - porn then trying to download 'security' software - closed browser sharpish!

Yep, happened to me the other night

on a completely inocuous thread and got redirected to knockers and fanjos

Me too about 20 mins ago. Was on the thread about the history boys book and phone started to vibrate and said site for 18+ only. Then loaded several pages. Then message displayed stating phone infected. Not happened again since.

Hi all,

So sorry that you've all had to deal with this! We are asking our Ads team for more info.

Happened to me an hour or so ago. Close up view of a woman masturbating. Are the hacker fuckers back?

Happened to me a few days ago too. On my iPhone and definitely nothing dodgy my end!

I also got redirected to a dodgy looking url yesterday, I closed it before it loaded so not sure if it was porn. I am on chrome browser on Android phone.

Happened to me this morning, not exactly what I want to see when I'm eating my cornflakes!

I have been redirected to sites (can't tell what they are, but it might be porn as they were blocked).

Samsung on Chrome.

If I get them again, I'll try to screenshoot them.

No porn, but I keep randomly getting an "adclick" page opening, redirecting to a site dslab.io with adverts for the Waldorf Asturia.

I'm not clicking on anything, it just opens when I'm reading through a thread.

I just got redirected to a site saying u needed a virus scan and it started an automatic download (although don't think it was actually downloading anything).
As Barbeasty says, it says adclick but I've not clicked on anything, just a thread or coming out of a thread

If it turns out not to be a Mumsnet issue, the next thing to think is DNS poisoning. Here's one fairly non-techy explanation. It's worth knowing about anyway. If your router still has the default password, change it!
