    Has this happened to anyone else? While viewing threads in Bad Dog, the page will go dark and another site appears. Then another, then another, etc. Had to use task manager to close my browser at that point. Virus scan and Malwarebytes scan show nothing.

    This happened 2 times now within a week. History basically showed this the first time:
    tdpri.com > navistmedia.com > mediatrackingapi.com > orgels.com >orgels.com

    Today was: tdpri.com > navistmedia.com > secure-system.biz (Antivirus for your pc or mac)

    I was able to react and close out in time today though. Weird.

    This happened to me using Safari. Ever since switching to Chrome, no more issues.

    I only use Chrome, mobile and desktop. Reported this months ago. It's always been an intermittent issue for me.

    Discussion from February, no admins contributed to the discussion:

    I reckon the malicious script originates in those hosted ads and not the TDPRI site itself.

    This has happened twice to me in the last coupla weeks. For the most recent adventure I used Task Manager to shut down 8 sites that I didn't open.

    I was getting so many redirects it rendered TDPRI unusable for me. I had to install adblocker software to circumvent the issue. I’m sure that’s not the route the site owner wants us to take as it reduces his revenue, but it’s the only thing that made this site usable for me.

    On your PC you can use an ad blocking HOSTS file to prevent these ads from running. I hate to have to do that but Google's inaction makes it necessary.

    On mobile devices they're hard to prevent since both Google and Apple don't give users the ability to block ads.

    Thanks for the replies - looks like I'm not the only one...and seems to be something that's happening relatively recently.

    I've been using Windows 10 Edge browser, but it doesn't seem to me like that's the culprit. Any suggestions or guidance, Paul @TDPRI ?

    I use the AdGuard app on my iPhone. It does the trick.

    Don't blame us. You are the one who took the brown acid.

    One way is you can put those sites as restricted in your browser, not ideal but it will prevent your browser from going to those pages.
    Another way, is an adblocker
