Same is a couple weeks ago. Got it when I clicked on a diary on the front page. Using an iPhone 7 Plus chrome browser.

    I switched to my Mac and it's fine. So maybe just a mobile site issue?

    I am getting hijacks and Norton resetting the connection due to attack on Windows 10 Firefox.

    Seems clear we're getting attacked on Saturday mornings. I'm on it. Thanks for the alerts and so so sorry for the inconvenience.

    Just happened to me, mobile iPhone 6s, clicking on ‘Reccommended’ tab at the top. Screenshot:

    FYI Qwest is the internet connection at home, but NOT the carrier for my iPhone, if that helps at all ;)

    Is this in any way related to the multiple redirects I get when accessing dailyKos?
    "Secret Agent has detected a suspected attempt to hijack a request, and redirect it to another web server. Your web surfing may be subject to surveillance.https:..secure.gravatar.com/avatar7b00...images.dailykos.com/i/default_avatar.gifwas redirected to https://i1.wp.com/images.dailykos.com/i/default_avatar.gif?ssl=1 using a 302 redirect message" This particular one is probably just advertising, but I am also getting redirects to Facebook and Twitter servers, and mirror servers when accessing DailyKos. Because I access from a hardened PC I can catch these redirects. This would not be possible from a monile browser.
