    That's interesting. Maybe contacting each other is causing a "super spreader" lol

      What kind of sites are you visiting?:poke:
      :lol:

      It started happening to me a couple weeks ago. Only happens on FABO, but to be honest, I don't spend much time on any other sites.

          Strange we get a lot of dud invoices & shipping docs every day now strange macebook went offline & 75% of them stopped.
          someone tried to put a $3500 horse bet on my card they picked up on it straight away.
          Dont store any passwords on your computer manually type them each time use an encrypted app to store them

              So far nothing popped up today as potential phone infections. Tommorow I'll try my phone at the place I eat at & was there yesterday when I had 4 pop ups

              I ran the malware program Joey posted but it didn't find anything. It's a 30 day trial.

              I'm also getting redirects to spam sites and garbage on occasion. Only on the mobile site, and it's not my phone. Happens if I login from an incognito or private tab and also in Chrome after resetting and reinstalling the app several times.
              Not all the time, about every 4th to 10th link or refresh.

                Yes, because the cookie is how your browser knows that you were logged in.

                I myself use a program called Ccleaner
                CCleaner Android

                  I think that's the same one I get. I'll screenshot it next time. Only ever happens on FABO.

                    Same, despite clearing all cache, data, cookies and history. Which is a real drag to do, BTW.
                    It did stop for a bit lately, but about a week after I reset my browser.
                    Pretty sure it's something to do with particular ads and it takes a few weeks for the ad host to nuke them.

                    I was getting the McAfee virus scan pop up last week, then it stopped occurring. This evening it was back again. Same as before only at FABO and only on the windows 10 desktop. Never when at FABO when using the I phone.

                      Are you guys visiting Russians porn sites, I heard that those cause pop ups and redirects.

                      Yes, me too. Looks like a fake McCafee thing about being on an illegal website wanting me to click scan, (Fat effing chance of that) and just now some other weird one with similar messages. And only on here.

                        Just started getting this tonight. Ran Superantispyware and Malwarebytes. Still popping up.

                        Only on FABO.

                        I don't have any McAfee programs installed on my PC.

                        virus alerts are nothing new to this site.. been happening here for many years. have seen many people over the years complain about it.

                        Same shit I got about 4 times, about 2 months ( give or take) ago. Factory Reset my phone every time , cause I KNOW NOT to open that shit! Got a new phone, in the middle of a job in BFE Bloomingdale, it did it AGAIN! so I wiped my phone. Had no way to contact customer/ receive cash, worked through it, no biggie, HASN'T done it since. Thanks FABO
