I keep running across malicious ads on GAF today. One tried to force my browser to download some files and the other tried to redirect me. I'm using Chrome on my PC.

I don't know which ads caused the issues as I immediately closed everything down and scanned my computer after both of those events happened, but this is the info I was able to get from the redirect:

Something keeps trying to make me download files every time I open a new page on Neogaf.

This needs to get fixed asap.

Same, but it's only happened a couple of times to me.

Stumbled upon a redirect ad while refreshing the recent DmC thread here: http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showthre...1402426&page=3

I reported a random ad through the system but included details to make it clear it was about a different ad that immediately redirected. The page claims that there is a "Critical Chrome Update" and contains a download button.

This is the address of the redirect, but with added spaces to prevent linking:

Something on here keeps trying to download files to my PC on Chrome. Even turning on Adblocking is doing nothing about it and it's creeping the hell out of me right now.

Running MalwareBytes right now.

Something tried downloading to my PC too, luckily a prompt came up and I was able to block it. I forgot the name of the file or file type it was trying to download, but I'm still gonna scan my PC.

Not sure if it was an ad but I was browsing Gaf Mobile and my phone suddenly hard locked and now I have to do recovery on it. Could be unrelated but its hard to tell with these ads getting so malicious.

Not sure if this is ad-related, but probably security-related?

I kept browsing GAF and when I wanted to post something, I noticed I was logged out and on a URL like this:

http://assets.neogafllc.netdna-cdn.com

or rather http://assets.neogafllc.netdna-cdn.c...=1&p=242624631 in the case mentioned above.

Which was esplicitly labelled as "not secure" by Chrome in the URL bar, while normal GAF does not have that note.

Was that just a server hiccup?

Just gonna put this here in case my suspicions are true, but there is this ad from Qatar Airways that literally locks up my browser anytime it appears. Maybe it's my computer, but then again, maybe it's not.

Yup, will redirect over and over and over, then I'll get a few moments of respite before back to it.

Same here with the Amazon ad. I don't use the Mobile site (I disabled it), so for me, it is coming through regular NeoGAF. I can't back out of it whenever I get the ad, so I need to completely close the tab.

If I "Request Desktop Mode" in Chrome, I don't think it shows up...
