Website redirects links to apple Spam site

This site is becoming unusable because it keeps redirecting to a Spam site advertising Apple testers. Is this an issue that other users are struggling with.
Thanks

I have not had that happen on any of my machines/devices. Is it when you are signed in?

I used to be fast....now I just dream about it.

Yes, many. iOS. I haven't been on here much lately because of it. Google "verticalscope popup spam" and you'll see it's not limited to mvagusta.net.

Never seen this link before.
This must be very frustrating if you're often being mucked around like this.

It ain't what you ride, it's the way you ride it.

Here's the one I just got now. Cleared cache, data, cookies, block/no block popups, even happened within 20 minutes of getting my new iPhone 7, with no apps installed.

It's a shame this spoils it for me as I don't know a better forum in terms of usefulness and just the awesome people here in general. I'm happy to help in any way I can.

Happens on all devices and not dependant on being signed in or not.
It looks like it's hijacking dns requests for internal site links. There are other sites with the same issue out there, hope a cure can be found as it's rendering the forums unusable.
Thanks

Same for me. Keeps me away too. Seems better now.

What a beast of a motorcycle!
It growls and rages and flies across the tarmac like a wild animal that has escaped the confinement of a cage and after merely waiting restlessly until the release, will not endure being locked up ever again.

Ahhhh...the conundrum of owning Apple products only. I don't see it because I seldom access the forum on anything other than my laptop (not a Mac).
I thought the Apple products OS were more immune to spam and stuff then other OS...???? Maybe not.

I used to be fast....now I just dream about it.

If you like your history the first pc virus created was for Mac and spread using a floppy. This seems to be malware which Mac are certainly not immune from. I have installed 1 blocker on the iPhone which is working at the moment until admin responds.
