    Default Malicious Advertisements

    I really do try to browse sites I enjoy with my adblocker disabled, but beesource is making that hard. You really need to take review of your ad providers.

    Right now you are serving ads that occasionally redirect android devices (using chrome) to "you have a virus" type sites, and that some how are disabling the back button.

    For now, I'm blocking ads again on beesource, can't risk all the malicious advertisements. Please please please review your ad providers.

    Thanks for reaching out. Yes, we've also noticed that there seem to be more of these redirects popping up lately. If you choose to turn on ad blockers, I cannot blame you, however, if you do happen to encounter some of these pop up ads while on the site, please try to grab us some info that we can send in and have blocked. We would need the follow:


    • Ad URL (right click over the popup and copy the ink):
    • A screenshot of the ad:
    • What device and browser you're using:
    • Your general location and/or IP address:


    Once we receive that info, we can send it to the ad team to have blocked. Thanks, and our apologies for the inconvenience with all of this!

    Cheers,

    Erik

    If you can't pull the IP from my login/ activity history I can pm it to you.

    Google Pixel

    Here is my user agent "Mozilla/5.0 (Linux; Android 8.1.0; Pixel Build/OPM1.171019.016) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/64.0.3282.137 Mobile Safari/537.36"

    If your ad provider is allowing these through, they are going to continue to. Dealt with this enough myself, only way to solve it is to find a decent provider.

    This is not necessarily malicious, but who knows what would happen if it’s used. It pretty much locks me out of the site several times. One time I cleared history and signed out several times in a row just to see what happened, it wouldn’t give up.

    Yup and even worse, it may appear to some users that Amazon is involved.

    There's no reasonable way to screen ads before they're posted. It's a feed based on a lot of criteria. I've always felt that the up side is that the site owner benefits from ad revenue (let's face it, there are significant hard costs to run a site) but the downside is having to watch the effect of ad feeds and tweaking them accordingly.

    There is a big difference between a web site having adds and having pop ups and other adds that redirect you away from the original website.

    I thoroughly recommend an anti malware, pup, and bad site blocker called Malwarebytes. There is a free version (permanently free), which I have run for several years and so happy I've now upgraded to the paid version.

    It will not block all ads, but will block the dangerous ones plus stop you opening harmful links like phishing sites, although it gives you the option to proceed, if you insist.

    It can run alongside most AV programs and is highly regarded in the industry.

    Just, make sure to download it from a trusted site. Sadly there are bad people out there who have created similarly named programs that are really spyware or adware.

    Hey there,

    Thanks for the suggestion

    To add on, one solution is to use enhanced mobile view (not available on IPads/only vBulletin sites) or use tapatalk.

    Another is to turn off javascript if you're using safari, but this will make some functions not work. Settings > Safari > Advanced > Turn off Javascript

    An apple user reported that they turned it off for a while and turned javascript back on and the pop-ups came up less.



    Maybe give this a try and see how this goes?

    known as devious perverted wenmasters, bet those are redirecting to payed ads for the webmaster,honestly ever since the sell out Beesource has gotten worse.
    bummer, it's just going to get worse, fact proven is that the company who bought it is known for ruining and destroying forums over the months after taking over, the forums become advertising forums.
    to bad...
