Hi,

i suddenly got adds on keywords or phrases which link to some crap. Is this a new feature on this site or is my computer just infected?

I'd check if it happens with another browser and also if it happens when working from a linux live CD/DVD/usb key.
If you're in Aachen, come and visit us at the Voidspace.

Still happens, on Chrome, completely different system so probably not infected. Pretty weird, if "Reason 11" links me to some pullover for woman...

No word from admins?

Are you using any extensions on Chrome? Use Brave instead, factory default. Just guessing obviously.

Nope, well, nothing special that could do this and all are trustworthy.

Try on another platform, like your phone, iPad, etc but sounds like you've already did this maybe.

Just checked. Here is the result. Its added by VigLink (from Wikipedia: "...operates using a JavaScript library that customers install on their web site to identify and monetize all potential links..."), so it looks like it comes from the Server. It appears in other browsers too.

I guess that's what pays our bills for this forum site. A necessary evil.

I see and can click the link with Edge. I get to a subscription for reason magazine.
No link whatsoever using Brave. Clean.
