    NZHS redirecting me to spam

    I've noticed a recent thing of this website redirecting my web browser to multiple different spam advertising on all my platforms (mobile/PC/laptop). The websites that I'm sent to ate obvious spam/scams and if it is the owners of this website that are being paid advertising fees, then that's truly disgusting to allow your members to be subjected to this.

    Anyone else experiencing this?

    I've experienced it too. On PC, tablet and smartphone. Usually when I click a link to a thread someone has sent me. Usually takes me to myfilestore.com, then when I try again, the link takes me to the correct page. Possibly something to do with the forum having no https:// in front to the address?

    +1 on what stretch said. I made a thread about it a few months ago.

    The site is hacked. I have this happening on my pc, phone, tablet and super locked down secure work pc so it's not a local virus.

    Someone posed a thread where they linked to an article describing how the forum had been hacked.

    Why hasn't this been fixed? Putin now has all the details of all the gun owners on here.

    It's a virus/malware on the forums server.

    I've seen the Russians driving on Youtube. They'll never make it here alive.

    If your viewing the forums on your phone or tablet get the app tapatalk.
    It's just an app for viewing forums, it's easy to use, and you won't get redirected to spam.

    I get the same problem as do friends of mine. Rather frustrating. Only happens with this site nothing else.

    It's definitely on the server side, somebody needs to fix it.

    Ive come across it before after reinstalling Win 10.Reinstalled Chrome and using search for the front page of this site to add to bookmarks it came up.Just replicated it before for a test and it came up.If you click back button it will go to the right page.It shows up in history but if you double click on it the original file dissapears and new one shows up.

    Yep, I've had it too. If using a bookmark or history link in my own browser, I'll never have problems. But if I'm following an external link (google result or similar) to the forum, then the first time it usually redirects to MyFileHost or similar, trying to give me malware. Clicking the original link again then goes to the correct place..

    Please fix it or if I need to do something from this end spell it out in very very simple terms so even my dog can understand as there are no children available to help this old computer illiterate.
