It would be nice to give more information.

But yes, I get the same infection message when on the site using my phone (android) on chrome.





This was probably 5min after going into the forum section and jumping around threads etc. It came up when I was on the Nitro Off-Road section.

Um... that's a phishing ad you get from visiting porn sites (as stated, "adult sites"). What else were you doing on your phone??

Yup....I'm too old for porn sites, so I know darn well I haven't visited them. This pop-up is extra annoying.

Yeah, I read see that other post now. I guess whomever's behind that phishing scheme wants to target other sites now (even though the "adult site" thing doesn't make sense on other sites...)

I guess they figure a large percentage of teens and adults surf adult websites, so they will panic and pay anything so they don't get caught

It's pretty clever....

Don't have time for p0rn sites!! Besides the wife takes care of that area.

I guess ad block will be added. Which sucks as I would like to leave the ads on to support the site
