Don't know if this is new, old or ok. Got the sling ad following my screen when I scroll.

I don't know if it's an ad thing, but I keep getting a verification login for some whhu.de site.
Not sure if that's GAF or my end, but it's only happened on GAF so far.

Is anyone else (aside from poster straight above) getting ads that auto play audio? Really annoying. I know it's an ad, because enabling adblock fixed that shit pronto.

On Chrome.

Just got a redirect on Chrome desktop too. It locked up my whole browser while playing some audio with a computerized voice. Something about a "critical alert"

Doubt anything was compromised, but doing a scan on my PC real fast regardless.

EDIT: Nothing turned up, thankfully.

Same thing has happened to me twice today. Not sure which ad is triggering it.

Been getting the same for a while now, Windows 10, Firefox 54/55. Malwarebytes blocks it after the redirect have occurred though. Malwarebytes & Adwcleaner find nothing on my computer neither does Windrows Defender.

Yup, constantly getting this shit. Got one a couple days ago that wasn't Walmart, too. I can never actually see the banner ad when they happen, the space is just blank, and to regain control of my browser I have to either hit okay on the dialogue box and close the tab really quickly or close Chrome entirely and be ready to close the tab before it's had a chance to load after reopening.

It's a real pain in the ass because I'm usually following multiple GAF threads at any given time and I can't always tell which tab the pop-up came from.

The Sling ad is now giving me two pop-ups on mobile, one literally over the other and I have to close both before I can see the bottom of the screen again. This is seriously annoying.

Getting re-directs to some random IP number website. Hit the back button before the page loaded so didn't see the destination. Thought it'd be wise to report so.

Google is sending out warnings now to sites that by October chrome will show a big red securiy warning on any page with a text input, as a way to nudge sites to https only

Does this mean gaf will go back to https and put up with the poorer ad performance ?

I'd love HTTPS login support on GAF even if nothing else is HTTPS.

Depending on how sessions are handled, that actually might not help.

I've never bothered to check if the password is sent in plain text. If it is, then anything is an improvement. If not, then yeah it could go either way. :P

Damn Sling ad attaches to bottom of Android device, blocking the buttons when reaching bottom of thread. I tried hitting the x and it does nothing.

Edit: also can't report it since it's not in the normal slots

Getting ads that now require flash, but since flash is click to run in Chrome they don't load, but connect hundreds of times a minute to the ad server.

They look to be phoning home to vid-io dot springserver dot com.

Causes the page to keep thrashing the CPU and eats up a TON of ram.

I'm getting this weird ad where it shows a static florist ad for a few seconds and then turns into random video ads. First it was a Nissan commercial and then a Subaru commercial. But it keeps going back to the florist ad in between videos.

There's a Panda Pop ad that gave me a certificate warning on Safari iOS. I didn't think to screenshot it, but I will if it comes up again!
It also gave me some kind of casino pop-up warning when I tried to click "Report Ad."
