Third party ads playing up again

Post by greg81 » Sat Mar 31, 2018 3:16 pm

There's an ad appearing for "Target" which attempts to auto-redirect to a page currently throwing a 502.

I've had this 5 or 6 times this morning and always with the same ad. Mostly noticed around the Buy/sell section. This does not happen with any other ads

The forum page loads as normal then after around 3 seconds the page redirects (see attachment)

This doesn't appear to happen with any other ads. I don't believe this to be malicious, but the ad is potentially trying to communicate with a server with a bad gateway. And it's manifesting itself as am exception on the client.

I managed to get a screenshot of the ad before it redirected me...
