Just got one in the better call Saul thread to a website called www.logcareer.com

About 95 percent of the time, this happens in TV subforum

Have you guys considered that maybe it's not your ad system causing this? That maybe the site PHP code or the database has been compromised? This selective ad injection/hijacking is the kind of thing I often see in conjunction with SEO poisoning.

Just happened a few minutes ago. And these are getting more aggressive to where you can't just shut down the window. I had to kill the app and then when I reopened it nailed again.

Goggle chrome browser on Android OS

Yep getting worse on Safari/iOS as well. Doesn't matter if I'm using mobile version of the site or the full version.

of course they haven't. it's clear the owners of this place give zero shits about it.

At this point I assume they're getting paid decently for these hijack ads. It's the only thing that makes sense since it drives people away from the site.

Re: Ads redirecting me to cam girl site MERGED

Site is almost unusable from iOS. I informed IB mgmt to ask tech to look into this. I can't see how they could legitimately want to use links like that, so I would guess their web server has been hacked in some way.

What? You can't use a free $1000 gift card? There's no pleasing some people.

Re: Ads redirecting me to cam girl site MERGED

And just got nailed again.... Love this site and is my main goto... But this is becoming so annoying.... Ads are one thing... But ads that can't be dismissed that are truly spam phishing fake offers which indeed are attempts at CC or ID theft are just septic...

Re: Ads redirecting me to cam girl site MERGED

Just got another "Congratulations" redirect on my iPad using the desktop version of the site a few minutes ago in the "Media Cabinet" thread in the gear subforum. Looking at my history it was quitysmart, if that helps.

I open each topic in a tab and the tabs are easy enough to shut down, but I still lose the page I was trying to look at and I have to go back and reload it.

Re: Ads redirecting me to cam girl site MERGED

I woke up to find new-user-ads.html downloaded on my phone. DVDTalk was the only website I'd been on the night before, and I get these ad pop-ups on mobile a lot. Linked issue?
