    Was just browsing Sherdog on my phone and all of a sudden an ad popped up a new window and it's a virus ad. I didn't click on anything, was just reading and noticed a new ad window popped up. Tried closing it ASAP. Noticed it was one of those "you have a virus" ad. Can't click back, luckily I was able to close the window.

    I remember a few months back, I couldn't even close the ad window. Can you guys test your ads before accepting them? Why does Sherdog have so many virus/trojan ad pop ups?

    Yup at the login screen.

    Sherdog is a dump speaking from a security standpoint.

    Yes full on nude pic promoting a tinder style site.

    I just now tried to use the heavyweights forum and found it impossible. Tried five times to read a thread and five times was rederected to a page that tells me I have "five virus".

    Edit: only happens on mobile.

    For me having a plat account now, I was,lucky to miss a lot of this ad infestation, but when I have to log in I run into those full screen ads.

    At this rate posting nudes should no longer be a bannable offense.

    I was visiting my mother the other day and vegging out on the lazy boy and it popped up right as she was bringing me a cup of tea. I had to quickly flip my phone over so she wouldn't see and think I was perving out in the family room.

    Not saying I'm not a perv but come on sherdog I can't get caught for some stuff like that when I'm not ready.

    You are still seeing ads when logged in?

    For mobile use Firefox Focus or Brave browser app, which have built in blockers.

    Only before I log in on my phone. I enter my name, then the ad pops up before I get to the password. No problems at all once logged in, though.

    Ok, I'm back.
    No more nudes. A Splenda ad comes up, but it didn't interfere with me logging in like before. Tried a couple times to be sure.

    I'm still getting the virus adds quite regularly whenever I use the site from my phone. Its very frequent and makes the site almost unusable from my cell.

    Dude. I get constant redirects as well. Same deal. The fake virus ad. Sometimes I'll get some nudes. It's nuts.

    Seems to be mobile-based for me. Happens via Sherdog app or Firefox mobile. From my PC, no issues.

    But it pretty much makes Sherdog unusable for me on the go.

    I'm getting the same ad virus as above posters. Happens on login screen and while lurking forums. Happens while using Chrome. I deleted the app as the hijacking rendered it unusable.
