    72225F78-9233-4310-8BE0-5AC6C53DE96B.png is anyone else being plagued with this today??

    Just started popping up. Happens everytime I enter main site. Occasionally when Im in firearms or Knives sections.

    Cannot back out must shut down to clear.

    Maybe its just my phone I thought Iphones where fairly immune to viruses?

    No, I haven’t seen that. That would be very annoying. I use an iPhone on Verizon, as well.

    Ya know... I am a supporting member but see Im listed as a Guide now. Wonder why I wasn't updated or requested to be updated. I assume that I probably expire. :(:30:

    iPhones are more immune than other types, but stuff like that can still happen sometimes. I hope people that created that spam type "you win" lock your phone up software get hit by a bus.

    Its quite annoying... Almost enough to take a little hiatus...

    Cannot change screens now without it hitting me. NO BACKING OUT. NO ANYTHING BUT ACCEPTING THERE OFFER. (Which of coarse no one should ever do)

    Next week ill see if I can re Up my “dues”. As attractive as the twins are scantily dressed holding hands is, its not why I come to Bushcraft site.....

    We do not support those malicious pop up ads they are not from us, at least not intentionally. I believe that it is possible to insert malicious code into google ads although it’s not supposed to happen. That appears to be what has happened here and we will look into how to deal with it. Doesn’t matter if you’re a supporter or not we never have and never will advocate them. The only ads you should see are the standard banner ads.

    Also I did a search to check on your supporter status to see if something went wrong with your account renewal but can find no record that you ever upgraded. Please PM me if you have any more information or further questions.

    I run ad block and never see any ads at all. And ublock origin I also run. Sometimes some site will not let me on because of it. But if they don't want me to run these than I probably don't need them.

    It’s been non-stop for me for the last 6hrs. This is the first time I’ve been able to login. I can’t back out of it no matter how many times I’ve tried. This was the only website or app that this was happening on. Occasionally it happens to me on Facebook, but backing out had always let me go on my merry way. Not today with Bushcraft USA.

    I cleared my memory cache, cleared cookies, cleared all history. I rebooted iPhone a few times also. To no avail. It randomly stopped, just as unexplained as it started. I have no idea why?

    Information I found about these fake sites that redirect you multiple times said that it’s not a problem with the phone, but malicious ads that redirect from the site being viewed.

    Very annoying, and obviously effects how I will view this site, as obviously, if I can’t login or even navigate to a forum while not signed in, I cannot participate.

    I haven't had any issues with this site (I use android), but occasionally have issues on other sites. A trick I use is to hold down on the back button, and a drop-down menu will appear with your history. Just click on the original site in this menu, and it will back you out of the ad. This doesn't always work, but most of the time it does (though it doesn't solve the original problem).

    I can use that trick to return to this thread only. As soon as I leave it, I’m stuck in pop-up scam hell. I was going to add to a thread I started earlier, but can’t.

    Oh well, looks like I’ll spend time and $ elsewhere for now.

    Yeah, it doesn't always make things perfect, but its a lot better than restarting your browser or device because of an ad...

    I go to a BCUSA page and this pops up. I ran my virus checkers and I am clean. I could hardly make this post without it popping up

    For those of you using Chrome or Firefox, install the Ublock origin plugin. Don't use Adblock, they're scheisty and sell data.

    If you're on your android phone, you shouldn't be getting pop ups of any sort from this site. If you are, your phone is probably b0rked. Factory reset your phone and hopefully you backed up your photos.

    I use AdGuard content blocker on my android and can browse the site just fine on my phone. Don't know about iPhones. Only time I use one of those is when a company I'm working for forces me to carry one.

    Switch to chrome browser and it will fix it. I had to just switch from safari to chrome because I was so frustrated. I couldn’t even get in to the site at all for the last two days, same ad as was shown above.

    It looks like they are all coming from the same domain. I have created a ticket with our hosting company, because we have not modified anything on our end in months.

    @yooper71 I got these ads from a out 12am to approximately 7 or 8am today.

    @kairo I have an android and when I checked the desktop computer this morning I saw no pop up but just on my phone.
