Pop up annoyance while logged in

Pop up annoyance while logged in.
I have come to expect these pop up windows that take over the screen prior to logging in.
Some variation of - Google user you have been selected to win a... Click to claim your prize...
I quit out of the Safari browser, clear all and reset, then log in and the problem goes away.
Today it happened While logged in. Not sure if the admin's are aware but it appears the fight is on.
This happens on various releases of Safari so far.
Have to try on Firefox. Don't use chrome.

Please post a screenshot the next time this happens. I'm pretty sure I know the popup you are seeing (it's been reported on another site) But please send in anyways just in case.

I'm also having a problem with that on my iPad. It redirects me from whatever BF page I'm viewing to that "prize winner" site.

@Pendergast Can you please post a screen shot? It would help.

It's not doing it at the moment. Next time it happens I'll get a screen shot. I've had it happen in the past, as well. It will do it fairly often for a day or two then it won't happen again for weeks.

Looks like a malware/adware redirect. Whatever you do, don't install the "free" app they suggest. The app will likely just serve up more pop-ups, and/or malware or some sort. Disconnect from the 'net and use a reputable product to scan and clean your machine.

Yeah, I'm not sure what's going on with bikeforums and my iPad. I only have the problem on this website, and it's not happening today. When I get these problems here they usually occur for a day or two then go away for weeks.

I'd never install anything some random webpage asks me to install. My iPad isn't jailbroken, so it should be hard for something dodgy to get onto my iPad anyway. Not sure what products are available to scan an iPad for problems, but maybe I should look into that.

It's possible that the bikeforums site has been infected and is serving up this malware. I'm pretty aggressive about filtering what gets through to my computer, so I haven't seen any of this behavior myself.

Keep sending in screenshots and device information. I know these malicious ads are a real pain

Apologies for not taking a screenshot; Safari on iOS was displaying a red "malicious domain" warning, so I thought I should note the URI as a second-best measure.

I'm getting the same thing. It's ONLY on BF and only while on my iPhone or my Samsung Galaxy Android tablet. It takes over the browser screen and won't let me go anywhere else. No way to get a screen shot with it taking over the screen.

For iPhone, you can take a screenshot by pressing the sleep and home button simultaneously.

Last week, started getting the "Four Virus" pop-up on my Samsung tablet, and the "Amazon Winner" pop-up on I-Pad II. Was getting similar pop-ups a few months ago, but, they stopped.. until last week.
