    Every time I goto racedepartment.com on my phone I get redirected to another ad website ie (cut the rope, sexy girls etc etc) this only happens on my phone, and only when connected to the mobile network not on wifi. And only on race department.com

    So im not sure if my browser has been hijacked, but thought I'd let you guys know, just in case there is a miscellaneous ad on racedepartment.com


    Anyone else have this issue?

    Hi mate,

    I'll pass this on to @Bram and @Dave Stephenson to see if they know anything more. I think we've had a similar issue to this in the past with some users.

    Apologies for the inconvenience :)
    Hopefully it can be resolved soon.

    Regards,
    Chris.

    I access RD on my mobile all the time (I just checked it having read this post) and don't get this problem at all so I don't think it's necessarily RD related.

    No you maybe Right, just that it only happens on here. I have also tried other browsers and weather it is using the same cookie info resulted in it also being redirected. Plus some other uses have also said the same thing, but at a previous date.

    So unfortunately I have had to install a web browser that has built in ad blocker to stop it from happening for the time being.

    It must be something on your device. I run android with chrome and have no issues at all

    Hello guys, sorry but,,,
    In IE11 - I'm getting a msg to:
    - open or save (adServerESL.js of secure.insightexpressai.com?)
    I am unable to attach the screen here. Accuses error during upload,
    but does not say what the error is.

    And in the mobile Android also accuses malicious action (vĂ­rus?).
    The site was down for maintenance but the problem remains.
    I do not know to whom I report, then transfer/report to the admins.

    I hope to resolve soon, I'm just reporting.

    I've had this same sort of thing happen numerous times in the past too, always on my Android phone using Chrome. Dont use my phone for anything nefarious, so the problem isnt from my end.

    This however, isnt just limited to RD. I have noticed it with a number of other "forums" and even had it happen a few times on the ISI forums website.

    Although, it only ever happens when accessing the "mobile" page and never happens when switching to the desktop site, or directly going to the desktop site (via changing settings for the internet browser).

    Only seems to have ever happened when using a forum that has that atrocious "Tap-a-talk" mobile BS enabled. No other mobile sites ever bug out or give these virus-like problems. So, honestly not sure if it is a problem with RD, or ISI in my other case, but more so a problem with Tapatalk being compromised. May not be connected at all, but I have only ever noticed this when accessing a forum with a separate mobile site that uses Tapatalk.

    Sorry I cant offer anything concrete here. I've tried to reproduce this myself before because I was curious why I was seeing these redirects/spam.

    Cant say there is any rhyme or reason as to when it happens, as it seems to happen completely randomly. And if I close the site, it wont happen 5 mins later. Odd.

    As for the sexy girl sites... isnt that what Race Dept. "premium" is for... Well, that is the word on the street anyway ;)

    Cheers

    There is no malware for iOS! It's a problem with your site.

    All are outdated and I have the newest os version.
    Strangely enough I have only a problem with this site. And only when using cellular connection.

    No, no man in the middle attack. I always install apps and os updates over the air. This phone was never hooked to a computer. But thanks for trying to help
