Only when I'm browsing wrx forums .. page turns into spam ad pages... I cannot press back. I have to close the tab and reopen. Is this happening to anyone else??

I'm  getting the same popups. I have a Galaxy S6. Some of the sites look malicious. One is giving me the fake virus warning.

Just saw this thread. I get these only on golfwrx mobile site. Apple iPhone 7
I think getting advice from guys who are sitting at the computer in their underwear while taking a break from porn is a very solid way to choose clubs. - bluedot

Hi All, can i just confirm here, are you using the mobile app or the "mobile" skin of the forums?  We have a "scanner" that scans the site and adverts for this type of thing but it hasn't picked any up in a week or so, so i'm a bit stumped to fid the thing at present.  Any info you can give would be greatly appreciated in helping track them down and get them blocked out.

I've gotten the same type of thing intermittently over the last year or so. Sometimes says I have a virus in the pop up. I just close the page and reopen the forum.

On an HTC One m9 Android. Mobile website on chrome.

Google just updated chrome on android to squash these malicious re-directs. Kudos to them!

I got hit with the Lucky Spin popup today. The d*mn thing overrides the volume control, so even with my Galaxy Note 4 on vibrate, the d*mn thing announces "Congratulations!" for the whole world to hear. As others have noted, it takes over your browser, so the back button doesn't work. You're only hope is to continuously hit the back button while trying to tap the 'tabs' button to kill the GolfWRX tab. 'Very frustrating.
