Issue with links sending to daterex.com and porn sites

Just had alink on this site send me to daterex.com domain which sent me to porn sites. If you try going back a page or two it only resend you to other porn sites.

I've looked online into that domain.and it seems to be an issue with SDMB links sending you to this redirect site and on to porn. I'm obviously not coming here for porn, not interested at all in porn, so if this is anything you can stop I'd be grateful. Unfortunately I can not remember the exact link as it was a miss hit on my phone. It only happens on mobile devices running ios and android apparently.

Has this happened to any other visitors to your Bikeradar site? Anything you can do?

    Yes me too unfortunately.

    Have flagged it up to the BR staff.

    Where was this link?
  • I just clicked on a topic in commuting chat and it redirects me to dodgy hook-up sites. Happened a few times now.

    I'm exhausted.
  • Glad it wasn't just me! Happened on the tablet yesterday. Thankfully the kids don't use bike radar.

    Facebook? No. Just say no.

    Unfortunately I can't tell you. I was viewing a page on my phone and tried to swipe to scroll the page up to continue reading it but my finger hit a link which went to daterex forwarding site.

    I'm taking a look at the issue now. I've a suspicion that it's either a browser hijacking virus/malware doing the rounds, or it's a rogue Google advert. If any of you notice anything else regarding this please let me know (ie a specific advert popping up on the site before redirect).
