Hey there! You guys have helped me in the past with issues with my computer, so I'm going to ask an odd question to see if it can be answered here. I'm not sure which forum to post it to, so I'm trying here and I apologize if it needs to be moved. I use Tumblr, and recently on all mobile devices (android and iphone) my Tumblr page occasionally redirects to pornography or other unsavory things. It's a very specific problem, one visit it will be fine and the next it redirects. I know that this is generally how the malicious redirect coding works on mobile devices. I contacted tumblr staff about my issue, and they said that short of tracking down the post that's causing the issue and deleting it, they can't do anything about it. Since the issue only happens on mobile devices (computers are fine,) I'm finding that the task of tracking down one post in almost 76,000 and deleting it on a mobile device seems pretty daunting, if impossible.

 

My question is this. Is there any program or service I can pay for to find the malicious post or line of code that's causing the redirects and stop it? At this point it's annoying, but I use my Tumblr for professional art and commissions and I really would rather not have this keep happening. The only thing I know is that it started happening a few months ago, but beyond that I'm stumped as to how to find the source of the issue. The only solutions I've found is if I own the webspace, which I obviously do not, I simply own an account on i. Anyone can help or direct me to preventative measures would be greatly appreciated!
