    On 3 different mobile devices I started getting pop ups and redirected to random scammy looking sites immediately after being in Sherdogs forum

    It happens while in the forum and after leaving it

    Someone might want to look into it

    No it's true!

    The site's been hacked.

    How else do you explain the number of posts claiming Bisping will win?!

    I don't watch porn on the phone, so there goes that theory. Got add BLOCK too. Some times I'll get nothing and sometimes the site seems unusable.

    Always works fine on my Chromebook though..

    It seems to be on your side, get Blokada (it doesn't just block ads but prevents you from getting redirected to malware or getting it in the first place) you don't need to be rooted either, if you have F-Droid then you can search for it there also.

    Happened to me too! I can no longer go on sherdog while at work because last time it redirected me to some tit bags.

    Thanks to the ones who posted fixes

    It hasn't happened today yet.

    Previously it would happen with the Samsung browser or the chrome browser.

    Tried on a Samsung tab and phone and a moto phone. No porn on the motto phone or Samsung tab
