Default Popup malware?

When using the mobile version on my iPhone I get redirected to
“You’ve won a .....” type of site.

If I request the forum desktop site or surf other forums, I never get this redirect.

This happened once last year and eventually stopped.

Anyone else getting this?

Last year I deleted all data from my iPhone (work phone no less) and it didn’t make a difference.

Yes I was getting this too on f150forums. I deleted all my history and then went to advanced and deleted website info, so far it hasn’t returned. I should mention deleting website info will delete all of your saved login passwords.

Thats the only time I have seen this type of issue, when going to the website not signed in, on my blackberry.

Here’s what I call the advanced pop up.
If I press and hold the iPhone BACK button it won’t even show the F150 site.

Prior to this pop pop up I could at least see the F150 in the list.

Shifting to “request desktop version” doesn’t help anymore.

While posting this one popped up. Old school as you can see the F150 site in my page history.
