    I've tried from my house, my work, and regular LTE cellular network. I also found articles of other sites running vBulletin with the same issue being related to a hack.

    Re: redirect error

    is there any way to get the attention of the sysadmin to take a look to confirm nothing is wrong?

    Count me as another one who has experienced this.

    Many times.

    On iPhone, iPad, and a Mac running the latest Firefox.

    On the computer, the ISP blocks the redirect and puts up an error site.

    On the phone/ipad, even when connected to the same ISP, it goes through.

    Ad blocker SW (Im running ABP on the computer with Firefox, purify on the ipad) doesnt stop it.

    This happens to me too. I always hit the back arrow and click the link again and it works.

    I've seen the same thing and it seems to occur at random.

    As others have experienced, the re-direct occurs on different devices running different OS's on different networks which seems to point back to either the forum software or the host network.

    Re: redirect error

    Taking a break from my detailing to update this for the site admins: I'm an IT consultant and have been running into the exact same issue the other folks have been describing. Ran autogeekonline.net through some tools and found this:

    Scan Results - Free Website Malware Scanner

    "Malware entry: malware.forum_redirect.1
    Description: Infection that targets mainly outdated vBulletin sites with the VBSEO plugin. It redirects visitors coming from search engines to one of the following sites: myfilestore[.]com, filestore72[.]info, file2store[.]info, url2short[.]info, filestore123[.]info, url123[.]info, dollarade[.]com"

    Basically, there's a random redirect happening because of an outdated VBulletin SEO plugin that's infected with malware.

    Hope that helps, I'll send you my bill. :-)

    It's a way for them to make money on the side allowing click-jacking, nothing else.

    Re: redirect error

    Same thing happening to me on multiple PCs. I sent the site admin some feedback weeks ago similar to what Slowcorrado posted, but did not hear back. Personally, I think it is mainly an annoyance, but it may have an adverse effect on site traffic/ranking if not addressed as google often blocks sites from search results if they detect an infection.
