While attempting to enter our 56 Chieftain in the 2016 calendar contest (via email invitation) I found clicking on some items on submission page took me to inappropriate non-Pontiacs Forever websites?

What exactly did you click? I do not see anything that would lead me to believe this.

1. I recieved email from PF inviting 2016 calendar entries.

 

2. I cliked on Enter Your Pontiac Now and was correctly directed to 

2016 Forever Pontiac Calendar - Entries

3.  I successfully replied using Reply To This Topic adding my entry.  Although it is unclear if I was successful in uploading a High Resolution version of my picture.

 

4.  While doing so I was directed away from FP several times, but now I am unable to repeat that scenario.  Never mind, I guess.  I cannot repeat my experience.

Unfortunately, I am not seeing anything that would lead me to believe this was a hack or that there of.


 


May have been a popup from another site or something local for that matter. I would suggest running your virus scanner and anti-malware, jswilke ;)

Yup, the problem was on my PC.  I discovered and removed "Catered to You" ad malware.   Sorry to bother you.
