Default Hijacked!

IWSTI is being hijacked by hackers.

Occasionally the site will load, then it gets redirected to a site that wants you to "click here" or whatever.

Believe I know what this is, and it isn't the site being compromised.

Am I right to assume you are coming to the site via a mobile device? Tablet or phone?

No.

It's your site. I've seen this before with a couple other sites and it was the site. It's common enough a popular weather site was compromised a year ago or so. The site is redirected to a red screen that makes it look like your computer is trying to save you from an attack and, of course, there is a big "click here" button which downloads and installs the malware in your computer instead of redirecting you to safety.

Ok. My first hunch was incorrect then.

Do you get it on all pages or just certain ones? I haven't gotten any other reports from other users, have you done a malware check on your browser?

What browser are you using?

Current and updated win10/Chrome. It's only happened a couple times, browser goes directly to new posts, then redirects.

The last time I saw this was several years ago, I forget the name of the malware though.

This isn't a malware issue. It's happened on multiple sites and was always related to one of the ad delivery companies. It happened here a couple years ago and the fix was removing one of the companies from the list.
