Can you look at the bottom of the page, under the (c) line, and tell me what or says?

Hi there.

I keep getting redirected every other time I come onto ANN (my weekly traffic is somewhere between 3-6 times a week). Since I only discovered this thread today I'll start by posting the ad that redirected me today.

http://usa.quebec-lea.com/zcvisitor/57c3bd33-7768-11e8-ac56-0ab4c0bb0c80?campaignid=d583e9f0-497a-11e8-a41d-0e9c191f3024

I cannot see whether or not it says copyright ANN because the security software I'm using has blocked the site completely from my computer.

Needless to say I don't like having to go back and find the original article I was wanting to read. Your help with this will be most appreciated.

It's a little complicated, but we'll look your IP up in the logs and see what network ads you're seeing. I'll use the IP used to make this post, let me know if you're using more than one computer (dynamic IP isn't much of a problem as long as you aren't clearing your cookies every visit).

A_Mixed_Drink,

Can you let me know what it says at the very bottom of the page, underneath the "All material Copyright © 1998-2018 Anime News Network. All rights reserved" line ?

It will help me determine what ad network is serving you ads.

Thanks


As I stated in my post it had locked up my PC so I rebooted it. No chance to look at network.

Today it happened again. A synthesized human female voice told my computer was going to be damaged by a virus if I did not call in 30min. It locked my web page focus to their web page. Every time I clicked away it popped back up to front and started it's threat dialogue again. I had a screen cap capability on my video card so I used it and rebooted my PC. I am using another computer to make this post from the same shared IP. I have a image if you get me a email address I can send it to you since no image upping to this board directly it seems..[/img]

Tonight redirected from Answerman. The copyright line reads:
All material Copyright © 1998-2018 Anime News Network. All rights reserved.
served by ruka-chan
cloudflare ray# 431cc79284c25927-DFW

These are all full window ads. Some redirect two-three times before you can capture a URL.Tonight's ads:

This is "flash" warning. I can't scroll the page.
https://appfilecenter.com/campaign/bookpain7/?ID=acsh18tc&sub=acsh18tc&subid=1806387-2366072709-0&S2=15301531441219866206243515231938475

This one presents a fake McAfee (or I'm sure whichever antivirus one is running) page saying the subscription has expired. Again, no scrolling:

Currently seeing static ads appearing between every two or three posts in every single forum thread I'm looking at. The forums are almost unreadable right now.

Edit: They're showing up between every few paragraphs of articles, too.

I apologize for the double-post, but I'm starting to wonder if I'm the only one seeing these ads, because I'd expect there to be other people complaining if so. I mean here's direct evidence of what I'm seeing (feel free to ignore the terrible political attack ad content):



And it's like this for not only every article page I'm reading, but even the forums themselves. I'm not really sure why I haven't yet told the add-on-which-not-be-named to do a blanket block for the entire site, because it's an utter mess right now.

Over the past week I've been coming across spam redirect ads after a few minutes of being on the website. Attached is a screencap that I was able to catch on the most recent incident on Dec 8, 2018 around 10:30pm Eastern. Link: [img]https://imgur.com/a/FQDOpEO[/img][/img]

Every single day for the past week, I've been getting that same screen as Yuki no Kokoro in the post above me.

I'm usually not even looking at the page when I hear a loud beep and that message comes up.

I experimented a little with it and opened ANN in multiple browsers at the same time, and it always happens in Chrome. I've never had it happen in Edge or Safari.

All previous days, I received the message in the previous post, however, today I got something different.

Still only happening in Chrome.

Experienced the redirect/pop-up-/loud siren ad a couple of times since last week. The server info: served by moeka-chan
cloudflare ray# 488e9b3016165933-DFW

I use Chrome 70.0.3538.110 (Official Build) (32-bit)

I haven't experienced the error (that I was getting previously) for the last three days, so I'm cautiously optimistic that it's fixed.

Just scanned my phone with Malwarebytes and it says I am Malware free. But I am getting occasional redirect ads like this one when I access the ANN forums on my phone:
