Oy! Slags!
I keep getting malware-y popups from your forum on my Android phone, "Your Nexus 5X has a virus, press OK to continue!' type shiz. Have to close the tab to get rid of it. No other site's been doing it so I think it's you not me. Sort it out
Tidy.

I haven't encountered this on my computer, phone, or on any computers at work. But it's not the first report we've seen. It's confusing to me because it's just Google ads that Kenni is using. Which should not behave much differently than any other website. Does it make a difference if you browse the site incognito?

I'm seeing several weird behaviors at the moment. No malware though!

It's as if there's not many advertisers this close after Christmas buying in on the ad bids which makes both ad earnings go down (currently 62%) and the type of ads that go through questionable. A lot of dating ads disguised as ads in the accepted categories and the likes.

The ad capturing your screen is not a malware ad. Its an ad type that I've blocked from the whole domain disguised in another category. A false positive. I've reported these ads to Google.

It's not consistent - maybe three times in the last week, out of ~20-30 site visits.

I'll live with the redirects etc rather than buy any bitley refills for not much more than said refill at full price I bought vengeance way back in a deal for just tad over that refills price I'll stick with vengeance it's so much of a beast and we'll bitley refills compared to that no contest I'll leave his old dated synth emulated sounds alone and stick where I'm at in more than happy land :lol:
