    Imtb forum is kicking me to some spam website when I click on new posts (not every time but so far only clicking on new posts).

    It's not this forum. You downloaded a redirect virus/adware from somewhere else. Many cleaners out there.

    I’m getting the same thing, but only from this site, none of the others I go to. Apparently someone really wants me to know won some type of iPhone sweepstakes.

    Thanks for the heads up.
    There is a Forum Update I need to address. If it is from here, hopefully that will remove it.

    I get an occasional redirect using safari on the i-phone as well. I spun the wheel and won $1000 at Walmart. Now all I have to do is give them my personal information to redeem it. Yeah right!

    What a coincidence! If I send them your personal information, I win $1000 too! Can you please forward it to me?

    @littlewave
    ***UPDATE***
    I contacted our Site Hosting provider and we did do a scan and they did indeed discover some malware.
    So I bought a hosting malware service and submitted a malware removal request.
    I don't know if it will relate to to exactly what you are experiencing, it takes about 12 hours for the process to respond, scan, and delete the bug.
    Keep me posted as to if it solves the issue.

    Thanks for the heads up Brett!

    @Mikie thanks for the update. I’m now getting the redirect on forum Home page (not the new posts link).

    Not exactly sure it’s the site now...
    They scanned the site and removed the issue. Here is the only place you have experienced this redirect?

    I wonder if a Google Ad is doing that to you...

    Yep only imtbtrails, although it is only happening on iPhone. Doesn’t happen on work computer.


    @Grego @Ricekrispyota you Guys still getting a redirect here using iPhone?



    Highly unlikely as iPhone isn’t jail broken, it only happens using my iPhone, and the behavior is specific to imtb and no other website.

    I am finding that the iOS11 updates (two of them) have been buggy. Some friends are having issues, too. Maybe that is the root of your issue? Or maybe you have an app that is redirecting.

    Haven't had the issue lately. I agree it was only on this website.

    ...of the baled sealed and in large containers that drug dogs love to sniff...kind?

    In all seriousness, thanks all for keeping me aligned with any issues on the site. I am preparing to do a system upgrade which eliminates a lot of potential threats as evil continues to work on our security armor chinks.
