    I use a cheap tablet in the shack.

    Occasionally when parked on the qrz page, a page will take qrz's tab... A page that is claiming I won something and is trying to mimic a giogle page. Is know it's a phising site, don't worry about that.

    The question is this:

    Is this page that appears due to some malicious code coming from qrz site?

    Or is this some garbage that installed itself on this cheap tablet?

    Thanks, tried it and got a message that the version is not compatible with my device. Maybe there's an older version...

    What's the make and model of your tablet?

    I did find a version of malwarebytes that works and it found no malware.

    Which web browser are you using? You might want to download a different one from the one you're using to see if the same problem occurs.
