Hi, everyone. Hope you had a good weekend. I've been reading some articles on Hubpages and halfway through reading them, I've suddenly been redirected to some spammy website. One was called "FullThrustAds" and another was something like "ClubAdsMe." I'm not clicking anything - I'll be reading a paragraph and the page will suddenly change. Is this happening to anyone else, or do I possibly have a virus? It only happens when I'm reading a hub, which is a bit worrying.
Just because it only happens when you read a hub, you should make a printscreen when these sites pop up and sent it to team HP.
This is not 'normal' behaviour on a reputable site. I would check for malware first. Malware bytes is free software you can download for a trial period. Quite often, virus checkers will miss these. Also, clear your browser of your cache and cookies.

Has anyone ever had images from a Hub hijacked so that the Hub has been flaggerd for violation of TOS?
