Parts of arrse forcing pop up windows with possible malware links

I have had the same issue all evening. I run AVG on my 'phone with all filters, etc turned on. Pretty frustrating (particularly on public transport when it looks to fellow passengers that you are getting pop - ups from dodgy sites!)...

I’ve just been looking at this thread on my iPad and I then clicked onto another thread on arrse and now I’m getting stuff pop up about Samsung phones and amazon gift cards.

It pops up in a different window rather than replacing the arrse window.

Done some more searching in the last couple of minutes and it seems to have stopped.

Nope I tell a lie. A separate window pops up with crap on it about a Samsung phone.

I completely understand that these things are a total pain in the arrse. It is easy to blame the site but it could be any one of a number of things. A dodgy router, infected app installed on your phone and badly behaving ads being served by one of the ad networks we use are all options. The fact that only a small number of the thousands of people who use arrse per day seem to have the issue is also interesting.

Can I suggest that you clear your browser cache as a starter for 10 and see if that makes any difference?
It's affected me several times today, mostly when using GOV.WiFi, for what that's worth.

And, ironically, whilst trying to post this, from home.

I get it on my phone, I had put it down to my habit of visiting porn sites, but it must be something else. Cleaned cache and all the usual things but still get it, especially the William hill site.
Not getting Wm Hill, but all sorts of other not-British shoite gambling sites.

It's taken 3 attempts to conclude this single reply!!

Guys, to do something about it I need a screenshot.

Simply whinging isn't any use as I can't track down the issue
