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

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
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.

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.

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.

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.

I have new iPhone and older iPad and was having the same issues. Contacted our IT guy and he told me to stop using Safari and switch to Chrome . All better now. Hope this helps it was really getting bad.
