Looked for a "site issues" forum to post a concern about scams, malware etc but could not find one. Posting concerns about security in the Nonsense board feels wrong but here we go anyway.

Despite using Malwarebytes whenever I access Bloodydecks.com on my Samsung S9 it jacks the website and plugs it full of links to a scam site. This does not happen on any other site accessed on my phone. I am presently at a loss on how to protect my phone data and have spent some considerable amount of time trying to fix it. Any help in this regard would be kindly appreciated. Here are two screenshots from this week. Screenshot_20200828-210741_Samsung Internet.jpgScreenshot_20200824-153732_Samsung Internet.jpg

@Jason you know anything about this Samsung/Google scam?

    I get it at least once a day from here.

    Also pressing back space or delete button when typing a post closes my keyboard unless I press the settings icon that turns orange in the toolbox. Only on this site.

    ditto. I always debug my phone after use. My laptop has more safegaurds, but sometimes also gets attacked.

    It seems to be android only. We are blocking them when you guys send them to us. On our end we don’t control what ads google fills in and there are bad ads that make it through google all the time. Since covid a lot of our advertisers pulled out and are going under. This means more backfill of google ads in the mix. Add the political BS going on and bad actors injecting ads in to the system to scam money and here we are.
    Make sure to delete cookies and temporary internet files to clear the banners out.

    Thanks for the update Jason.

    How do we send you something malicious without getting tagged ourselves?

    Anyone that use any phone for any other than phne calls, texts, and Google Map is a fool. Phones are very the easiest thing things in the internet universe that can be hacked. People that use their phones for payment methods are really asking for trouble.

    Desktops, laptops, ATM machines, card scanners, USPS for paper bills, counterfeit money... everything is hackable. Good thing banks and payment companies are fluent in this and will take care of their users. If you get got learn from it. Layer your security just like you did when you bought your first firearm.
