Just had mumsnet redirect to a scam site called babitted dot men

Looks like it's a variant on a winner scam.

I'm going to report my post so MNHQ can look into it.

(For info this was from a laptop running windows 10).

Hi PricklyBall,

Thanks so much for flagging and sorry for the inconvenience.

We're asking our adops and tech team to investigate now. In the meantime, can you let us know if it happens?

Hi *PricklyBall,

Thanks for alerting us to this, we are looking into it right now, did you grab a screenshot by any chance?

Sorry - only thought afterwards "dammit, should have thought to take a screen shot". But it was faked up (quite convincingly) to look like something connected with a microsoft windows10 update. (Which was a bit of an own goal - I mean, why would microsoft be sending me stuff about having won a new Samsung Galaxy phone?)
