    Nick is there a virus on the site?
    Everytime I am on SBT on my phone I keep getting a fucking Tesco promotion.

    I get it occasionally as well. Seems to hijack a link because I never click on adverts. Takes me to some shitty pop up laden site with a dodgy as fuck URL.

    And youre the only site on my AdBlock whitelist as well. That'll teach me.

    Ok I'll have a look first thing.

    If it happens in the meantime, any chance can get the link it goes to?

    I've been getting it as well, it seems more like a phishing scam to me.

    Meant to say that it has been going on for over a couple of months now.

    I have had one that says my phone is infected with viruses and trying to get me to download software. The domain is a .pw one.

    It's exactly what I posted in the computer section a few months back!!

    Adverts cover the posts section and generally just acts like it has a virus both on phone and lap top!

    Just took me 6 attempts to post that as the advert covered the comments section and then you have to click back out and back into the thread and then your half typed comments are there!!

    Nick maybe something to do with versions of Internet Explorer for example. Think you need to know what people are using, has to be something like that as like i say i don't have any probs via pc or mobile.

    For those who clicked on the answer to try and win the £600.......text back the word STOP to the number given. Otherwise you will be charged £4.50 a week until you do.

    You don't get IE on mobile.

    It's a rogue ad hijacking the page.
