Forum malware

I have some type of malware that only hijacks postings on this forum. It does not affect any other internet programs. Basically when I click on a thread to read it my screen changes to a page informing me that I have been selected to receive a $1,000 Amazon gift card or some such, inviting me to "click here", which I never do. The only way to clear it is to close the web page and start a new one. It happens at random and a thread that triggers it works fine on the next try. I'm using a Samsung tablet (and sometimes an android phone.) Any suggestions?

At least you are getting gift card offers. I'm receiving opportunities to complete surveys on how much I like Spectrum Cable
Like you, only happens on this forum - and not every time.

I have an ad blocker on my Samsung phone and tablet.
I never get such ads.

Don't know what browser you're using, but try clearing your cache. Also, if you have some kind of anti-virus program, you may want to run it and see if it finds anything.

I am running a popup blocker, no ad blocker that know of. I am running a virus blocker, getting clean scans. Strange it only happens on this forum.
