Virus in Safari browser?

I only use the Safari browser when reading DVDTalk. However this just started popping up in the last day. Not sure if itís some kind of virus or bug. But this pops up a lot when Iím going from page to page.

This isn't limited to DVDTalk... It's been coming up on a lot of news/tech sites.

According to this it's a busted Google ad. Surprise surprise.

Yeah, I encountered it both here (using Chrome on a Mac) and elsewhere (using Firefox on Windows 10) yesterday.

I'm using Firefox with a Mac, typing in a title under "Review Search" and it's just showing "404 / Not Found". I have also tried Google and Safari on a Mac as well with the same result.

I submitted this issue on another of our sites to our 3rd-party ad security team, but they confirmed it is a Google thing.

All that stuff was moved around yesterday, and the rest of the site hasn't caught up yet. If you go to https://www.dvdtalk.com/reviews/ and do a search from there, it should work.

Thanks Adam, that worked. However the layout looks out-of-sorts. The graphic with the box cover art and star rating is partially covering the text and there are huge gaps between the paragraphs of text.

Might just be my browser/MAC combo?

If you could start a new thread and post a screenshot, that might help the folks who are overseeing this project.
