Mobile Ad Hijack

Postby phlip » 29 May 2012, 22:42

I was browsing the forum from my phone earlier today, and the site (probably the ad) popped up this message and redirected me to some ad website... I didn't get a chance to look at what the actual banner ad was, but hopefully this is enough information for you to find the offending ad...

Not had it come up on Safari from my iPhone, must be an android targeted attack (not really a leap of deduction considering the add says android in it).

Not a mobile ad problem but for some reason I get betting adverts rising up from the bottom of the screen. Must be something to do with Euro 2012.

I've started getting a 'this page requires flash to view' banner appearing at the bottom, can still browse fine but it's on every page.
