Thanks for these. Please keep the reports coming when you see scam or browser hijacking ads like this.

Most of these start at gogo.powerangers.com, though briefly. So they look to be the source for the Trojans.

Again, these are only showing on NS, but they happen more frequently (every other time I click a link to on here to do anything, with the exception of answering issues).

I've asked that the Spicy Lingerie ad be blocked, as it's a little risque for our userbase.

The ones I'm really interested in hunting down, though, are the outright scams that try to tell you you've won an iPad or whatever -- especially if they hijack your click and try to redirect you somewhere.

I have a dedicated person from our ad host wanting to track these down this week, so please report any you see, with screenshot + URL if you're able.

Isn't that a good thing?

Yes, but I finally got the ad provider to give me a dedicated person to complain to, and suddenly I have nothing to complain about. :(

There's this one advertisement that always forcibly redirects me. Only one time that it has appeared has it not redirected me to another website.
I took this photo before it redirected me to another site.

I wasn't able to take a screenshot of the site it took me to before, but I got the ad again later and this is what it looks like.

I doubt this is on my end because I haven't downloaded anything recently other than images and just ran a quick scan.

Thanks.

I keep getting an inappropriate (18+) ad. I can't upload a screenshot, because I am on my phone, and the ad doesn't have the Google ad report menu that most ads have, so I can't get rid of it.
