redirecting to a malware site
« on: January 13, 2020, 07:15:16 PM »

Hey guys, just wanted to let everyone know that if you search for the forum on google and try to follow a link through google it will redirect you to a malware site, so just be careful!

It's been doing this for ages. Bloody annoying. I think I mentioned it a while back.

Not sure what cookies you have stored on your phones, but I don't have this issue...

I've not found it to be an issue on my phone, but can sometimes end up on a funny page if I open the forum through a Google search in incognito mode one a PC

Experienced it loads of times on Desktop.  Also had a lot of trouble registering last year (couple of months), all the questions were right and then one day it just finally accepted them.
