  • Pop ups -Ariana grande ad virus?

    Is anyone getting a pop up when the Ariana grande ad plays (it might be another ad, there were more on the page) on this site freezing their safari app and saying their iPad or iPhone is crashing due to the site and to call the 1800 # and pay a fee to remove it?? It's happening on the OLTL page so now I'm cautious to go back there. Do not give them money, it's a scam!

    There's a Tech section on these forums. There's already a thread there on this problem and the mods are addressing it. This thread will most likely be moved over there as it is off topic here.

        I haven't seen the Ariana Grande ad, but I have been getting a pop up claiming "suspicious activity" has been detected on my computer with a 1800 number to call. It only happens when I'm on this site.

          I got that one as well (plus Ariana Grande). The computer started beeping and warned me of "suspicious activity" and I should not shut down my computer, but should call Time Warner. It happened both at home and at work on this site.

            ^^Me too ... it only happens here. I reported the "suspicious activity" one a while ago.

              I know Dan has to pay the bills, but this is beyond intrusive.

                I agree. There were some a while back that would take you to porn like websites for just going to a soap discussion page that had a certain ad, you didn't even click on anything it would just redirect you. Very disappointed.

                And I know it was off topic, I was trying to warn others because quite frankly I'm disappointed that they haven't warned people on here about that malware. A few months ago mods were asking in the B&B boards to let them know which ads were the problem ads, so I thought it was helpful. Not everyone is able to check the tech page first before having a virus scam pop up.

                I'm not sure how much it cost to run the site, but I'm sure there are many who would rather donate a few bucks than have to see those pop up ads that could possibly be downloading malware on their device.

                  At 6:19 it is back on most threads I try to open. The real problem is that you get stuck on the ad and that is it. I also got the security warning. So sorry this is happening.
