Reading a thread when suddenly the page changed to a rather graphic video! I'm on an I pad (using safari) and I definitely haven't been on any dodgy sites, is this a mumsnet problem or an iPad problem?

We're sorry to hear about this - would you try to get a screenshot for us if it happens again. We'll certainly take a look.

Don't worry, it has happened before and is a troll glitch basically so nothing to do with anyone's browsing history wink

Same hereshock

And I'm not going to take a screen shot! I don't want that in my photofilegrin

Just had it happen again but with some sort of credit card/dodgy looking money site. Before I saw the post about taking a screenshot though, if it happens again I'll take one.

Happened to me too!

I was reading the 'is this sepsis' thread, moved onto page 2 and got this cartoon picture instead of a man and woman DTD. There was a message on it I can't remember what it said, something to do with don't look at this web page.

I hit the back button to be greeted with naked woman and flashing yellow page with address bar showing something like zerwin???

I haven't used FB on safari and this page jumped up from nowhere

What exactly is a troll glitch? That's not explaining to me how porn bypassed my internet provider protection and landed on my screen.

Should I stop my DC from using this device? Is it linked to only MN and only certain threads?

ColdFeetinWinter Sat 14-Jan-17 04:06:23

Any answers?

Just happened to me too. On iPad using Safari. Sorry, no screenshot as I closed the browser down immediately.

Always remember to clear your Safari cache regularly. It helps a lot.

DowhatIwanttodo Sat 14-Jan-17 17:38:48

Just happened to me. Very graphic picture! It was difficult to close too as it said it was loading so lucky dc were not around.

SparkleShinyGlitter Sat 14-Jan-17 17:40:01

Me too I get a fully naked women with her legs open shock

ColdFeetinWinter Sat 14-Jan-17 17:59:21

I've cleared my cache cozie and now MN is taking ages to respond...to the point I feel like giving up. I've never had any security worries with another site but last year's MN attacks and now porn from this site has made me very uncomfortable.

Not sure why clearing my cache would prevent it as I really don't visit porn sites and am sole user of this iPad?

SealSong Sat 14-Jan-17 18:02:53

"Troll glitch?"

What exactly is that, MNHQ??

DameDiazepamTheDramaQueen Sat 14-Jan-17 18:06:54

Ffs AGAIN?! I was only thinking this morning that it had settled down,clearly nothmm

SealSong Sat 14-Jan-17 18:25:13

I've never known a website to have so many technical problems as this one.

ColdFeetinWinter Sat 14-Jan-17 18:31:19

Oh I've known loads have sites have glitches!!! But none have involved hacking users I'd, swat teams or porn confused

Cherrysoup Sat 14-Jan-17 21:44:47

Just posted about this, same thing, iPad and safari. It has the word Facebook in the address.

LouMumsnet (MNHQ) Sat 14-Jan-17 22:06:12

Thanks to you all for flagging this up to us. We really do appreciate it. Our tech team are looking into the problem and hope to resolve it soon.

Armi Sun 15-Jan-17 20:47:29

Just happened to me too. I don't know who the young woman was, but she's going to catch her death going around like that.

AngieMumsnet (MNHQ) Sun 15-Jan-17 21:52:30

Is this just happening on iPads?

BakeOffBiscuits Sun 15-Jan-17 21:58:53

Mine was on an iPad

SparkleShinyGlitter Sun 15-Jan-17 22:00:26

Yes mine is on an IPad

PidgeyfinderGeneral Sun 15-Jan-17 22:02:08

I had the same thing today on an iPad. MN suddenly redirected to a site called watch my girlfriend which was porn.
