    Unauthorised downloads with every click on TD! !??

    WTF, this has been going on for a week now!
    When I'm on my phone using TD my phone gets a new download which I carn't open or examine with every click!

    What's going on?

    Think Lulu is trying to hack me and send me a nasty virus


    Example exhibit A

    ^ I've had similar when using a phone, Chitty. I don't get them on my laptop. I think they are "flash" files.

    TD is "Not Secure" as the owner can not be arsed to pay the pennies for the certificate thingy. Perhaps it is something about this? Where is Harry when you need him?

    I get the "not secure" all the time.

    Not had the "out of resources" for a while

    These "flash files" are a mystery. ..

    It's a recent development.

    Odd, for sure.

    Had to look up what an SFI file is, as all of those downloads are .sfi

    https://fileinfo.com/extension/swf


    An SWF file is an animation created with Adobe Flash that can be played by Flash Player or with a web browser that has the Flash plugin installed. It may contain text, vector and raster graphics, and interactive content written in ActionScript.

    More Information
    SWF files are commonly used to bring animated graphics, video, and sound to the web. They are also a popular means of delivering browser-based games. Because SWF files contain compiled ActionScript and compressed media, they are not meant to be edited. To modify a Flash animation, it is recommended to edit the original .FLA file instead.
    SWF (pronounced "Swiff") was originally an acronym for "Shockwave Flash" since the SWF format was designed for Shockwave Player. However, as SWF files became a standard means of publishing Flash content on the web, the acronym has been modified to mean Small Web Format

    Cheers Lulu, so for example if I had 2 phones with same Gmail and one was being used for games and gaming this might explain it. ..

    Chitty - did you happen to work in an insurance company in 2001 that was representing Sheldon Adelson after he demolished Tower 7 for the payout? If so, you might be being hacked.

    Their indifference towards security/upgrading is quite alarming...
    Perhaps telling of future things to come?

    Ive been having the problem for a while on my mobile too, using Samsung Internet.

    If i go to threads with pics or videos I get offered loads of download folders or the chance to watch them in VLC pkayer.

    If its a busy thread like show us your you tube vids or one of Fishlockers i get tons of fukkin files

    At least you have the opportunity to decline them.

    Every thread I click on gives me a few automatic downloads without choice and worryingly,I haven't a clue what they are.
    If it continues there will be only one option for me regrettably.

    I'll buy the forum and get it all sorted out folks. I'll let him keep his whore adverts for free as well.

    fear not folks.... a deal is in the world. You'll know when the deal has been made

    You tube vids, photos and a bit of subliminal adware from the modsroom.

    No problem - I'll kick them into touch. Adding this gif because I find it mesmerising.

    I'd go for changing the settings on the phone and browser, then doing a full malware sweep.
