Just got the fake virus scam pop up on my phone. This after my work computer said viruses were on the site.....

I don't know, it is a site to discuss sports, not airline safety.....maybe we should take it less seriously?

Brock, now I'm getting this, too, but only when using my phone. Here are the screen captures.

I'm going to try staying in full version mode as that seems to help but it's much more difficult to read and maneuver the site on my phone in that mode.

I rarely access TD on my (Android) phone, but yesterday I did and immediately ran into the annoyance that ChiTown reported. There is some bad juju going on and needs to be tracked down.

It's only on my phone while in the mobile version. When I go to full version, that seems to abate.

No, but like Chi, I haven't visited from my phone much lately either.

I used the phone yesterday to check on the site, and in that brief time I don't recall any problems. That contrasts with my report back in August.

I'm on my cell now ... nothing popping up. It would have by now. All I can suggest is if it's problematic, notify Brick and switch to full version mode. For now it's good for me.

Yeah, and famous last words. Something out there heard that and I expect to be bombarded for it later today.

Sorry, Brick ... er, I mean Brock ... damn it!
