  • Strange Page Instead Of Homepage

    I'm writing this on my home PC which displays the website fine but I've noticed when I try to visit the website on my work laptop it's re-directing to some dodgy looking page that says something about being the 5th billionth visitor. I shut down the page as soon as possible because it could be something flagged up by my work IT dept it looks that dodgy. I can see if I can get a screenshot if it's not something you've heard of before. It's on Chrome and is fine on my home computer but seems to be getting redirected on my work laptop to a phishing looking page telling me I've won something.

    My first thoughts are that your work laptop probably has an old favourite or link which goes back to when vBulletin was hacked and TSF was affected.
    Delete this old favourite or link and search a clean link and save this.
    Up the TSF!

      I also get this on Chrome on android. If i'm not logged in the snooker forum redirects to spam. If i back up and try again it will do it once or twice more before letting me in. For some reason if i have already logged in it doesn't do it. I'm accessing the forum via a google search, so the link should be up to date.

          I will pass this information onto the techies.
          thanks

          I have not seen this on my Android, I have a bookmark saved to the home page; or on any machine since the hack was fixed.

            Thanks for the feedback and when I manually entered the complete URL instead of letting it auto complete it loads the homepage correctly and has done since then.
