I-Phone advert
« on: October 28, 2013, 09:59:56 AM »
Good Morning JF,
When I call up the Korat Fart website, without logging in, I am getting attacked by an I-Phone advert which is a bit stubborn when I try to get rid of it.
Just wondered if you were aware of this ?

I don't have any problems like this. Did you check your PC for infection with adware viruses?

It happens sometimes that your computer gets infected when visiting certain sites, and then from the virus in your browser links to other sites get hijacked with ad pop-ups etc..

Can you make a screenshot of the ad, so I know what to look for in case our forum software got attacked? Is it a pop-up, pop-under or slide-in? Does it say in one of the corners, which advertising company it comes from?

Most of these unwanted ads have a hardly visible tiny x outside the "Windows-look-alike frame" on the top right corner to close the ad. Just don't expectt to close i by the x looking like the x showing in browser windows to close. That's just the trick they play: who wants to close the ads clicks the ad!

Johnnie. Thanks for that. Fortunately it seems to have gone away now - if it reoccurs I'll try to get you those details. And I'll run my C Cleaner. ATB
