    The last few days I have gotten redirected while reading the forum on my phone. I will be in the middle of a thread and all of a sudden I am looking at a scam or malware page.

    Direct.mcpherren. com, www.gladmpath. xyz, countenancesmear. Club, m.delightpath. xyz, and unrejectableunwedging. Club are the pages it has taken me to.

    It seems to have started after I followed a link to an article at www.captainsjournal.com in the portland aar thread. Is this something on my phone causing it or the website?

    I have had no problems from the link cited and have heard of no other people with issues. But I will do what I can on this to let those who know more than I and hang out there know about the potential issue.

    I followed a link given earlier to a previous thread from 2016 on Giving up you id to the police. While in that old thread I followed a link to another GPO forum thread that took me to a building supply business. The link looked to have been hijacked.

    I'm not sure if it has happened while I am logged in, because most of the time I just see what's new without logging in.

    Thanks. I don't know if it had anything to do with the other site. I just looked back through my browser history and that was the page listed immediately before the first occurrence. I'm also not intentionally clicking any links when it happens. I could have unintentionally clicked an advertisement while scrolling though.

    captainsjournal.com has never been a problem site as far as I know. I used to read his blog daily for years until we had a difference of opinion. Never got any viruses or redirects from there. Occasionally drop in from a linked source with no issues.

    Congratulations!!! Does that come with a free Marriott stay? Or an extended warranty for your car?

    Never checked into it, but Im sure it does. A.Springfield already pointed it out and I didn't see it.
    Only happens off wi-fi
