For the past week when viewing this site at my computer or iPad at home I immediately get a message that I've been infected with spyware and I'm frozen into it without being able to do a thing.  I went to my tech person at school who also visits the site and she has the same thing happening to her when she accesses this site.  She said the forum has been infected with Malware and a bad one at that.  She says we were hacked.

Excuse me if I sound stupid but I'm technologically ignorant.  I just know it's bad and it's not only me.  What do we do??


Getting the same iuess here on moble

I experience this issue sometimes, less often the past few days, while viewing the forum on my phone and on various other sites. The sites claiming that your device is infected with malware are scams. They are likely due to advertisements somewhere on the page, which are able to redirect you to a different site without even clicking on the ad. I doubt that this site is actually hacked, but it would be a good idea if at all possible to look into where the ads shown on this page are coming from.

I'll also add that the pages that are redirected to can range from anything to warnings about being infected with viruses to "congratulations" pages claiming that you have won a prize. These are all phony scams, and nothing bad will happen if you just close out of the tab and don't interact with the page.

All...please read from forum support:

Hello,

What is happening there is likely a fake virus pop up triggered by an ad. The forum itself is NOT infected (all forumotion sites are securely hosted on secure servers and all login data is encrypted in a database), nor is the device itself likely infected at all.

It is simply a fake pop up triggered by a bad ad. If it happens again please tell your members to a screenshot of both the pop up and the ad being displayed and if possible the link to the ad.

Your too nice! This is my last really crazy semester. Next semester is Dynamics again, Meso meteorology, Synoptic II, another graduate class, and current weather seminar so busy again, yet not as crazy mathematically as this semester. Finish line is close...

I copied this from the Jose thread.

helluva storm this Jose. WOW!!!! 10 more days of tracking for a little breeze and some showers Evil or Very Mad Evil or Very Mad Evil or Very Mad Sad

2 big takeaways/lessons for me

1. If Frank and Scott are absent from most of the conversations going on in a thread then IT's NOT A THREAT. I should have known better

2. You can still golf during a hurricane

Called the dealer today, said I don't need to pay a shipping charge for my NEW SNOWBLOWER as the Ariens rep is going to bring it with him when he comes in.

Thank God we have 2 months to get things in better shape in his eyes!!

Scott no not all but is very coercing due to his tremendous ability to call these over the years.
Sneak peak at Jim Witt's long range calendar is bad too.
We'll have to see.
Sorry to be the bearer of such.

Most mets I've seen have predicted a mild fall. Not sure about winter though.
