Now today after posting that I had no issues, I am having issues on my desktop when I click on New Posts and then click on the blue arrow button to view it a new page launches and I see a page that says “flash download, download ready, a download button and a final step button.

If I wait long enough then a dialogue popped up saying flash app required to proceed click download and simply add to Chrome to complete the final step with an OK button.

I have never ever seen this problem on the desktop before. I am currently on my mobile device and this issue does not happen, so something is clearly wrong with the website it appears to have been hijacked.

But wait there is more!

I am now on my desktop and other links from the New Posts work fine, it just seems to be this thread.

Really weird man!

Not sure if its possible for someone to hijack or sabotage just one thread?

Going to check a few more New Posts threads and see whats up.

Sorry for all the posts.

All the other "New Posts" Links (by clicking on the little blue arrow thing) work just fine, it only seems that this thread (page 2) is hijacked/whacked out and sends you to another web page with all that other stuff I mentioned.

The "New Posts" from this thread works fine on my iPhone.

So it is real and it's taken awhile for it to filter to other uses ( I have had no problems this time or last but I have web filters out the wazoo for things like this)

For me the attacks are being more and more persistent and a nuisance.

They are happening 5-12 times a day now.

What software would I have to install to block these types of attacks? Some kind of anti-virus software?

Starting to get really worried about all the attacks and don't want to have my machine hacked or loose any of my work.

Thanks.

You should never try using the internet without at the very least anti-virus!

Most folks have anti-virus / security system (prevents phishing, keyloggers, attacks, trackers, etc) usually plus dedicated anti-banner, anti-ads, anti-pop up, etc software.

Internet security software is readily available (usually not for free) - applications like Kaspersky, Comodo, Avast, Norton, etc.

The extra stuff is often free and easy to obtain on line (especially for browsers such as Firefox), popular programs include:
AdBlock Plus, Privacy Badger, AdLock, Banner Blocker, Cyber Ghost, etc.

I find it incredible how many folks see so many adverts (down edge of Facebook, Banners across their searches, between posts on forums, popping up every they click on something, etc), when, with a few minutes setting stuff up properly - you don't see ANY of these! (I don't even see the shrapnel ads top right and left side of screen on the forum - noticeable on your, Zov's, screenshot in the general forum!)

I am getting it too. This is what popped up:

REMOVED URL by Admin

I also got the Flash update one.

I am using Microsoft Edge and running Norton anti-virus. It started about 3 days ago.
