Weird links in posts

Postby Velizeraptor » 25 Jul 2013, 11:49

Hello,

Is anyone else looking at the forum today getting little bits of ordinary text coming up as links to adverts? I can't explain it very well, but for example on the thread with the Bee roster for Dorset the Gerd bit of Erma's name comes up as a link to a reflux cure? Or is my machine infected with a nasty thing?

Sounds like it might be on your end...are you browsing on a pc and what browser are you using? :(

Have you got any ad blockers or other apps installed on chrome that may be causing issues? Maybe go to your browser settings and remove anything that looks suspicious..

Sounds like a text enhance virus or malware:

It's stating the obvious, but make sure your security is up to date and give yourself a good scanning.

Thanks! Did a security scan and nothing came up, but there was a weird extension which I deleted and it's gone now :)

Thanks for the help :)
