    I received an auto-redirect to a bogus "Install Adobe Flash Player" site when loading the home page on a computer I don't usually use this past weekend. That was Safari on OS X 10.13, without an ad blocker installed. I took a screenshot, but didn't have my login details at the time. I think the screenshot did contain the URL; I'll try to remember to upload it when I'm back home in a week or two.

    I get redirected every so often when I log-in on mobile. THIS is the url. Attached is a screenshot.

    Just got an alert from Malware Bytes while cruising OT.

    Thread: "Far-Right Ideology in the 21st Century"

    "Trojan"
    Domain:
    IP Address:
    Date: 5/31/19
    Time: 22:24 ADT (10:24 PM)

    The website was automatically blocked for me.

    EDIT

    Found the source. There was a picture embedded in a post from the trojan website mentioned above. I have since deleted the image. The warning does not pop up anymore when entering the thread. I have asked the user in question not to post anything more from that site.

    Edited by Petek May 31, 2019 to remove link to malicious site.

    Thanks for the nice detective work. I've deleted the link in your post since Virus Total detects it as a malicious site. We wouldn't want any of our members to accidentally visit it.
