    The site must be infected with something.
    It's nearly impossible to visit Broken with my Smartphone or Tablet.
    Every few seconds an advertisment pop-up,mostly from eToro,and wants to force me to download strange software.

    I don't even have my adblockplus turned on in my browser and I haven't even seen a single ad or popup yet.
    My HEVC/H.265/x265 videos can be played with either VLC or MPC-HC

    It's possible. The popups from the last time were an infection also. That could also be messing things up. Later I will contact support when I can get on my desktop for a bit and see if they can help. Something strange is going on for sure.....

    Site is working normally for me, no pop-ups, ads or anything. Using Pale Moon with AdBlock Latitude.
    I've not seen any unusual behaviour on the site at all.

    I still have the same issues even after trying the site with Chrome.
    Mind you, I didn't try Edge or I.E because I'm really not that desperate at the moment.

    Exclamation

    an infection sounds like a definite possibility

    Does this mean we should change passwords, emails, etc?

    no pop-ups for us here, though

    All the other issues, still the same problems

    we use FireFox with NoScript, AdBlocker, AdBlocker Ultimate,
    and our custom Firewall and Custom AV

    Yeah, whenever I logged in yesterday and when I clicked 'Post' I got em. At first I thought "tracking cookies" but I cleared Firefox out and ran my most excellent Kasperski AV; it didn't find anything but those damn popups followed me for a while even to another site. I was pissed thinking these bastards are tracking me via my IP address now, or I am in trouble with something deep in the system!

    Today, though - none of this stuff. It's weird how inconsistent these experiences are from user to user.

    Site functionality is still compromised, though.


    Before I even came back to Broken I had read that the site had been hacked and was worried about what kind of damage (maybe even cumulative, over time) those idiots could have done.

    Why target a site like Broken? We have no money, we are not political, we are not subversives...

    I haven't had any problems.


    *Edit: Yes, now I see some reduced functionality in the forum.
