I just got a spontaneous redirect

It may be my own malware issue but I am posting it just in case.
If its possibly infectious, why would you link it? Just saying, you should probably demolish part of the link.
Then how do you account for you having a browser redirect from it? Bad luck? Seriously, I visited that link from this thread earlier and have been redirected by it twice in the way you describe. Im just saying, maybe its one of those things you shouldn't be advertising all around town. Besides external links are not permitted in the forums. That is why. Remove the link or ill report it.
I just tested the forum thread link and am not getting a redirect.
Is anyone currently experiencing this issue?
Sounds as if it could be malware.
With what browsers?
Do you have extensions or plugins disabled?
I would start by disabling all extensions.
Also look for any unknown installed software.
Run a malware scan.
Restart your computer.
Try a different web browser.

Been there, myself. There is no prison sentence long enough for malware writers...
Wow, some folks are pretty bossy here to not even had a hub published, lol....and threatening...
Amazing what I run into as I stumble around the forum threads!
Ive been here almost as long as you Dale. Dont misinterpret my comments as threats. I really would report a link that could be malicious.
I dont comment in forums on my other account and use this one for that purpose. I have never cared for the forums my self until recently. This is more or less an experiment on how participation in the forums affects a hub score. I will probably produce hubs on here at some point. That will probably lead to monetary gain, etc etc you have heard the lingo im sure.
The Op, is wrong in one regard. A website can be programmed to download items that steel private info. They all look innocent. She demolished the link or a moderator did, I had to make it serious to protect people.
Thanks for the clarification. You post sort of reached out and slapped at me as I read it.
I may well, in the future, contribute new material here. I had to back off for a while while Google was having digestion problems with HP or vice versa. As it is now, I read the forums to learn more and keep up with changes on the site as they are made.
Things are ok, I also was aiming at something with that. There are people in this world dumb enough to break into peoples accounts and post links like that. I had to ensure that was psycheskinner, the fact that she got snippy back with me in her unique way, tells me its her. I have never known psycheskinner to not come back with a retort when someone gets sharp with her. Sorry if my post seemed harsh, lol.
On another note, I stopped going to the forums about 3 months ago when I got tired of the monotony of the usual suspects arriving and posting the usual subjects over and over and over. My frustration grows in the fact that new users rarely ever hit that search bar for their questions. They ask the same things 40 times over and its not year to year. Its month to month anymore. I understand they are new users, and new users are our future but come on, the search bar is right at the top! I use it almost daily when I do research! Oh, well you can lead a horse to the water trough, yada yada yada.
Anyhoo, thank you for understanding dale, I will let you know if I ever produce hubs on this one.
FWIW is still get this redirect only ever from this forum--after running a full paid malware program.

While I'm being a policeman, I can't help noticing that there's a lot of self-promotion that goes on in the forums. Especially the "other topics" forums, where quite often you'll find posts with not much more than the link to the person's Hub.Surely the forums are places to discuss...

Now I've got your attention I have a query which has been niggling me ever since I joined HubPages! I can't find an answer to it hence this new discussion.My understanding is you must NOT promote your hub in the forums - as per the note top left on the page when you start a New Discussion -...

It looks like a fourth of my feed lately is comprised of new people wanting the rest of us to tell them how to write. All day I get request after request for help on passing the Quality Assessment. I mean Really? Many of your requests are just one step above being a jumble of mis-spelled words...

There are a lot of us who haven't been feeling safe on the forums. They've felt stalked, harassed and browbeaten.Sadly, some folks go with the letter of the law, but not the spirit of it in their posts.For an excellent post on why we need Forum Moderators, check out what Makingamark says here...
