|So I searched for site on Google, for a couple reasons, I’d rather not disclose the specific site, but it’s been up for years and is typically the first result when you search the sites name.|
I’ve been to this site many times, but today, something odd started happening. If I search the site in Google, the correct site is indeed the first result.
The problem is when I clicked this link, it sends me to a different URL, one that gives me spammy vibes. At first I wondered if the site was hijacked. It has never supported HTTPS, so I figured maybe they just got hacked. But strangely, and hour or so ago, I didn’t have this issue.
The part where it gets strange is when I browse the URL directly, I get the correct page, not the spam site. Also, if I long press the google result link and wait for the Safari preview, it shows the right site, as does opening in a new tab. I hopped over to my PC, searched for the site and clicked the link, and it all looks good there.
I can’t even begin to imagine what going on. Maybe some strange UA/referrer/etc. hack, but this has only been observed about an hour ago.
