Getting a redirect on eBay

Today, when using eBay on my iPad, I've been getting a pop-up that says "Congratulations Amazon User!" (Followed by some crap about rewards) when I do a search, and then redirects me to a site called spreediscount-dot-com.

I'm on an iPad/Safari so it shouldn't be a virus or other malware. Presumably it's some kind of ad script on eBay that's doing this that's sing some kind of iOS or Safari exploit.

I'm running an adblocker, and I cleared my history and cookies, but it's still doing it.

This happening to anyone else?

Tried eBay on a different browser (ALook) and it's showing up there, too.

I use the eBay app and haven't had any issues.

Re: Getting a redirect on eBay

This issue has made it reddit... https://www.reddit.com/r/security/co...d_redirect_to/

This spurred me to finally upgrade from iOS 10 to iOS 11, and the redirect stopped for a while but it’s started up again. Looks like I’ll give AdGuard a shot.

Re: Getting a redirect on eBay

This trick seems to have worked for me:

I already tried deleting my history from SETTINGS>SAFARI and that didn’t work, but doing it SETTINGS>GENERAL>STORAGE did. I’m also running NeverAds and AdGuard simultaneously.
