Well, we seem to not have a 'security' forum were issues related to malware, phishing, scams, browser hijacking, etc. can be discussed. But, I'm just curious about the obvious 'phishing scam' shown below in two 'screen captures' from my iPad Air 2 when on the iPad Forums using Safari (most recent iOS). This 'announcement' pops up intermittently only on my iPad and this forum - googling provides plenty of hits of others affected, so not unique to me. The first screen 'redirects' to another URL which brings up the second screen - a $1000 Gift Certificate is offered if certain questions are answered; of course, don't continue. My usual response is to: 1) Disconnect from the internet (i.e. turn off Wi-Fi or go to Airplane mode); 2) Force Close the browser app (Safari in my case); 3) Re-open the browser and delete the nagging URL; and 4) Reconnect to the internet - this usually rids me of this scam; however, I've had to also delete my browsing history (a pain). When I open Chrome on my iPad, I do not receive this pop-up when on the iPad Forums; nor have I had the issue on my Mac laptops. So, just curious if others have received this 'phishing scam' - if so, any other comments? Safari in iOS does not seem to offer any 'blocking options' - I'm also usually on a VPN which does not seem to prevent this issue. Dave .
