I've noticed this on a number of devices. When I'd open hpcfactor.com, it would redirect me to a porn site, a scam site or another malicious site. Note that this only happened once on every device.
Has anybody else experienced this?

If you issue:
nslookup hpcfactor.com

If it doesn't return 80.229.22.239, you have a compromised DNS server most likely, malware infections can do the same.

I ran it and it did return 80.229.22.339. This is pretty strange. I might have to check my router

I've logged on here with over 100 different devices, some wired, some not, all from different states where I was visiting and have never been redirected to a porn site.

Which tells me that you've been a bad boy Swizzle....

Can't say I've ever had that issue when I've visited. I've used Win/Mac, HPC's, tablets and phones. Hope you get it sorted. Let us know how it goes.

Obviously the most important question begged is: what kind of porn? Is it hey-honey-I-bet-you-could-do-this or is it Pete-Townsend-what-can-I-do-for-you-officer ?

Well I tried to reproduce it, but it didn't happen again. nslookup returned the correct address and my router seems to be OK too
