    I am getting this also. Just last week I did all the above steps that Tricia outlined. Took quite some time. And today, logged onto WS and bam... back again.

    I know you're aware of the issue & are working on it, but I've been getting a ton of redirects as well. These are screen shots of 2 that I've been automatically redirected to (has probably happened 25-30 times total today).

    Awwww.... man.
    Just checked in quickly and planned to return later... 4 times my Webroot changed the page I was attempting to read into the grey "Warning" page that I was in unsafe territory.
    Curious if Webroot sees WS as a virus-infected page ?
    Will contact them later.

    Have a good day, everyone.

    This is the message I'm receiving : ( Webroot SecureAnywhere Pop-up Page)

    Malicious attack ahead


    Webroot has blocked access to the website you tried to open.
    It has been reported to contain malicious content.

    Get me out of here

    Whatever helps

    "However, that app did not survive beyond a reboot of the phone, due to a default iPhone security configuration that prevented persistence of malware.

    [...]

    Furthermore, he noted that all the successful exploits showcased during the hacking event were triggered by routing a connection to a malicious website via a web browser. While the exploits aren’t trivial to develop, particularly with the iOS platform, the damning fact still underlines the ease in which an unsuspecting target can turn into a victim.

    As white-hat hacking endeavors go, the vulnerabilities were instantly disclosed to Apple and Google, the developers behind two of the biggest mobile platforms in the world. While patches are currently being developed, it could be months before a patch is revealed while the exploit is plugged, Gorenc added."

    I'm using an ipad2. I've been getting the redirect here and there for a few weeks. On top of that WS constantly reloads, my iPad is incredibly slow, and as of today I can no longer open images from a Google search.( I can see thumbnails but I can't open them). I'm pretty sure the iPad is infected with something. The last time WS had a major virus issue I ended up replacing 2 laptops. if I have to replace the iPad then I may have to give up WS. Sigh

    It's not WS, the devices used to join have scripts running on them that slows things down, from my experience. There are a slew of them running these days, rebooting and updating help.

    Posting links without buffer scripts may helps others too, seems to me. I have no issues when I manage to avoid them. So, if you see a link on say the birdee site or the 'mug' book site, then go to the main page of the MSM, then back to the article and use that url, and not the initial buffered url, others will have fewer problems with sticky ads and data hungry scripts, could be possible too, but what do I know? You can tell ahead of time a url is clean of buffers by going to 'reply with quotes' and checking the end of the address, if you wish.

    Just now - 6:38pm, got the same redirect with this URL: http://appsurveygo.com/surveynow.php...6&t=1477867075
    Sorry, I didn't get the screenshot, but it was the same as this one I had before:
