Strange Popup when first entering the site

29 10 May 22, 2017 at 04:35 PM
I just went to the Slickdeals homepage and after I clicked on a link, I was redirected to a phishing site with pornographic images. I haven't had any issues like this before but just wanted to let you guys know.

I'm on the Windows 10 on my laptop. Using Chrome with no extensions currently running. I'll update this post if it happens again.

If you can remember, do you know which link you clicked on? Was it an ad, from a thread or what please? That might help the devs track it down if it does happen again. Also if you know the url it redirected you to?
