I love The Wood Database website (www.wood-database.com), but lately when I have been using it with my iPad I have suddenly gotten a screenshot that looks like this:

Has anybody else experienced this? I didn’t think Apple products were particularly prone to malware (and I don’t venture too far on Safari anyway).

Likely you have some sort of malware that is redirecting your browser.

I contacted the site owner. He agreed there was a problem. I’m pretty sure I don’t have malware on my ipad. Hopefully he figures it out. I like the site quite a bit.

Works fine on my Acer tablet.

Apple is too close to wood and that’s why the iPad doesn’t work correctly! chuckle

The odd thing would be that I only have trouble with that site (and even only on certain pages) and the owner reported that others had complained as well and he was later able to duplicate the problem. Today I went and looked up persimmon and didn’t get a redirect. Maybe it’s been fixed.

Probably just malicious code on the site that is opening a new window. My site was hacked and malware installed sometime back. Google temporarily shut me out of their search and my hosting company caught and removed it lickity split.

I see the same thing on my ipad. I think they have been hacked.
