Yeah - not certain. I did get one of this pop up today.

What is being done to investigate and remediate?




This is getting really annoying on my iPad. It happens whether I’m logged in or not.

This pop up is frustrating. I don’t have this problem with other websites.

I wonder if the ownership of this forums sits around and tries to figure out ways to **** off the membership every few months? This is madness,

I’m wondering if the website has been hacked. I also got the forgot pw page after logging back in on my iPad.

For iPhone users, two workarounds:

1) Go to Settings > General > Restrictions (enter your iOS password) > Websites > NEVER ALLOW, then enter “nextgiftcard.top”, then select “Done”, and back out of Settings. Now, instead of getting the gift card pop up, you get the Safari pop up alerting you that it is trying to go to the restricted site “nextgiftcard.top”. This is only slightly less annoying than the gift card pop up in that you can back out of the Safari pop up with one click of the “back” button, or

2) Follow binster’s suggestion of downloading the Adblock browser instead of Safari.

Neither option is ideal, but provides workarounds until the site fixes the problem.

Time to get some new IT problem solvers, because the current ones sure as **** don’t know how to solve issues.

I only get the pop up on this site and only with my iPad.

Why do we need to install a new browser just to view this site? That only invites more ways to get problems on your device. (And, I’m not yelling at you, just saying it’s crazy for a “client” to have to try to work around a hosts ongoing issue)

It is suggested as a temporary workaround.

Also add “giftcardhd.top” to your NEVER ALLOW list.

I'll try the restrict that site but I also wonder if I can do it in my iPad or iPhone why iBrands can't purge its site of this hijacking. Like others, this issue is solely at this site and makes it unusable on my mobile devices.

For what it's worth, I'm also use a Camaro z/28 forum, and they have the same problem. Virtually unusable with the iphone.

Adminstered by the same IT group?

Yeah. I’m realizing that blocking the sites is likely a futile and endless game of whack-a-mole.
