Same problem as some other users with the popup corner ad. I got mine while on one of my dragon's pages. Browser: Firefox Operating System: Windows 10 Screenshots: [img]https://i.imgur.com/IlSmPHX.jpg[/img] I forgot to add the screenshot text but the whole thing goes from top to bottom.

[quote name="Valla" date="2019-10-03 07:53:59" ] I've had a couple of bad ads just now that have both avoided me being able to inspect the source. I am using Chrome and running Windows 10. The first was this "Ads by WGX" one that appeared in the upper-right corner of the window: [img]https://i.imgur.com/bZW2nJ4.png[/img] But alas, as soon as I tried to right-click on it, I was redirected to a different site, and the ad disappeared after that. I had another where the ad space at the bottom was blank and I saw a "pop-up blocked" message from Chrome. I went into the page source and found the ad section but before I could take a screenshot suddenly it switched to a completely different ad that didn't appear to be problematic. I will update this post if I manage to get the source code of either of these. [b]ETA:[/b] I got the "pop-up blocked" ad again and quickly went into the source code and got this: [url=https://i.imgur.com/pdm8a4U.png][img]https://i.imgur.com/pdm8a4U.png[/img][/url] However, I noticed there didn't seem to be any terribly useful information visible so I expanded the subsections as much as I could and managed to get this before the ad switched to something else: [url=https://i.imgur.com/Q4bR7QT.png][img]https://i.imgur.com/Q4bR7QT.png[/img][/url] Hopeful there's something you can use in there! [/quote] Experiencing the same exact issue here, but this happened while in the Coliseum. I'm using Firefox and it had a "Firefox blocked 4 pop-ups" message appear on the top of the page. Could not gleam anything useful after I tried to inspect the pop-up ad but it looked almost identical to the screenshots above, I'll update this with more data as I can collect them OS: Windows 10

Seems like this is happening to Windows 10 users for the most part, i left my adblock off for an entire day when my friends told me about it and i didnt get a single ad that had malicious intent.
However, i use Ubuntu 19.04, it might behave differently because Windows 10 Is a new and mostly not really secure OS from what i can tell..

Stay safe everyone.

I got the McAfee ad by WGX
Code hurts my brain to look at so I didn’t even attempt to inspect element

I've been getting the same "Ads by WGX" situation! I have a screenshot here, and I'll try to do the f12 inspect next time! Chrome, windows 10, Dell gaming laptop. [img]https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/351246606684913665/629515657318236171/unknown.png[/img]

[quote name="Vwoop" date="2019-10-03 12:57:30" ] I've been getting these same ads as everyone else as well, Windows 10 Chrome. Blocked a pop-up after it showed. I'll do my best to get a screenshot/inspect the next time I see if, if it pops up again. [/quote] Same. Windows 10, Chrime. Un-ironically, I use McAfee and it still told me it was expired. -_-

just encountered one of the mcafee ads in the top right hand corner (windows 10 chrome) -- tried to right click to inspect but it took me to a second site which I exited out of before getting the url for fear of malware

I just sent an email. its that ads by WGX, I got one while bonding familiars, didnt click it, but it redirected me to a spoof microsoft site saying your windows operation key was 'frozen' because it detected something, prompting you to put in your windows registration key to "unfreeze" telling you to not close the window, or restart your computer until you do so.
