Default Malicious pop up ads appearing

Hey guys,

Just wanted to let you all know that there are pop ups on iPhones now affecting our site that have malicious code in them that always redirect to those “Congradulations! You’ve won an Amazon Giftcard!” type ads. I know this has been a huge problem with DrumForum, but I’m really upset that it’s happening here. Weirdly, it only affects me when I’m not logged in, and just browsing as a guest. Also, there happens to be a certain ad that triggers it every time, and I’ve attached a screenshot so you can see the ad as it appears when you open a thread. This is my favorite forum, and it’s now unusable on iPhone’s unless you’re a member, which some aren’t. I hope there’s a way to fix this.

Sincerely,
OldReliable

Have you tried fully quitting the site - by powering down and restarting?

I had some wierd images always loading below every post on my phone, but now they've gone.

Ok, Iíve restarted and also updated my iOS to the latest update, and the problem seems to be gone! Mustíve taken advantage of an exploit in the older version of iOS.

I use Ad Block---never had a problem on any site---if you can't secure your browser on here you might want to look at your online banking, and bill paying!

Can ad blocker be used on a phone?
My Mac is locked down with ghostery and Adblock plus.
Funky things only happen here from the phone.

There was a few months when Boís avatar populated everyone elseís.
That glitch wasnít annoying. A misdirect is very annoying.
