So are we just dead in the water until after the holidays?

I could only make this post this through my laptop. My iPhone is completely useless while trying to view Corvette Forum. That freaking ads continues to pop up every 30 seconds or so. All other websites are functioning properly.

HELP!

Try clearing history and cookies, then reboot the phone. I had to do this on my android before i learned the chrome fix. Would work for a couple weeks

Exactly. I get the same crap when using my iPhone 7 (IOS 11.2.1) but not on my iPad (10.3.3). I wonder if that has anything to do with it?

Don’t know if it’s coincidence, but I just did an upgrade to iOS 11.2.1 yesterday.

No, that's not quite accurate or truthful.

Yahoo and CorvetteForum/Internet Brands are not affiliated with each other. And there's many more.

Like I said before, we'll have the ad team investigate after the holiday since only they can act on the issue. In the mean time, there's some alternatives such as using the full desktop version and the app in the Apple store as I believe the ad management is different.

What IOS version is in your iPad? My iPad is fine, but I can't hit the Forum on my iPhone.

Itís popping up on Yellow Bullet and LS1Tech as well. However, itís much worse on CF
iphone 6
Safari

I copied the web address and added it to restricted websites under adult content.
It works, warns you when it tries to redirect. And you can back out w/o closing Safari.
Iíd bet though that these tricky bastards have several redirect sites. Seen 2 so far.

This just started recently for me in the last week.

This site is getting worse and worse. Have a brand new iPhone X and canít even browse the mobile site. Switching to chrome I got the pop up on the first thread I opened.

Ive never had this pop up on any other page I navigate to so this is definitely a CF problem not a phone problem.

FWIW, a year or so ago, I reported that using the Full version (vs. Mobile Site) on my iPhone/Safari was the solution for these pop ups. That doesnít prevent the pop ups that are occurring now.

Also (Bing):
Rouge = A red powder or cream used as a cosmetic for coloring the cheeks or lips.

Rogue =
1. A dishonest or unprincipled man.
2. An elephant or other large wild animal driven away or living apart from the herd and having savage or destructive tendencies.

I’m not getting the pop up on CF on my my iPhone today - so apparently someone fixed it since last night. I did download Adblock last night at binster’s suggestion, and it appeared to work. This morning I’m using Safari, and no popups, so like I said, it appears to be fixed for now. I don’t think Adblockwould prevent it just by it being on my phone.

10.3.3.

It's so old it wouldn't let me update the IOS. It's a damn good thing

I'm using it right now with no issues. My iPhone 7 (11.2.1) gets the pop up within 45 seconds of logging in. Tried it again just now to confirm.

the older IOS version (my iPad) definitely is immune.....hmmmmm.......

Not fixed. I was not on my iPad, but was on my Galaxy S7 and got redirected to pages telling me i was infected and had some clock countdown.

The team is investigating it today.

However, I'm not sure the Apple and Android issue are completely the same. This thread is about the iOS issue and is being investigated today. Safari doesn't appear to have the same protection on these issues as Chrome does on Android.

You mention the S7 (Android). A solution has been posted several times for that involving the Chrome browser:

Using Chrome, enter the following URL in the address bar:
chrome://flags/#enable-framebusting-needs-sameorigin-or-usergesture

Then enable the highlighted option.
