Hi community, but moreover BT IT!
Today I was browsing eBay. I made a search on eBay.co.uk for a door bell.
I clicked the first link and was presented with this (see image).
Of course I haven’t followed thru on what is clearly a scam. Financial information or otherwise.
However I am somewhat concerned how this redirect is possible. It is not like I am running Windows and infested with malware or viruses. Far from it. My entire network is Apple. Save for one PC which is protected with Kaspersky and Malware bytes.
Therefore I am somewhat bemused and confused how I have been served with an http redirect from a clean iPad.
i am using my own ASUS router, but this has had its admin passcode changed. I am running wpa2 wireless with aes 256bit.
The only recent network addition is an Amazon dot. Which also ‘fell off the network’ randomly today and required a reset.
i use high cypher passwords for everything. Wireless networks, logins....everything! So I don’t see how being hacked is an option.
but to get this on an iPad is disturbing. Anyone else?
Absolutely nothing to do with BT or Ebay. Install a pop-up blocker for your browser.
It’s not so much a pop up as a redirect!
it pops up yes, well looks like it, but it’s actually a redirect to a different site!
Since when did pop up blockers exist for safari on iOS powered iPads anyway!
If you do an Internet search for "eBay link redirect" you will find numerous items about it happening.
As it is obviously not a BT problem I would suggest that you contact eBay about it as it would appear that their site may be the problem.
