I was in team forum trying to type something and the browser changed to one of those survey pages with popup..

*Malicious link Mod Edited out*

be careful if your gpro page gets redirected, close it and start again.

Sounds like some sort of malware, Gavin. I suggest you to check last installed apps, as I doubt Google Adsense is so careless to let such Ad slip.

sadly no, I'm an IT guy, not malware.

just wish to warn anyone, if it happens to you, close it, don't click etc!

also not saying its gpro's fault, clearly something google missed.

The ‘ad supported’ software can end up on your personal computer in various ways. Most commonly is when you download and install freeware and forget to uncheck the box for the third-party software installation.

There are no such malicious ads on GPRO, your computer is infected with something. It can happen even to the IT guys :)

Ad slip

Yes, ads like this can be quite annoying most of the time, and they just bumped the team recruitment forum not long ago.

Wait, are we not talking about the Jags? Opps sorry.

Dont assume "the IT guy" is wrong and "google is great", again not pointing any fingers at gpro, it can't be helped and google has done a lot to remove bad adverts from its system but better to raise some awareness than let people get duped by things like this.

GPRO is the only site I have ABP disabled on and while im not a supporter right now I will continue to allow ads to support the game.

I suppose it's not GPRO's fault but the ad provider's. Sometimes ads manage to find an exploit or they just blatantly violate the ad publisher policy.

Such things sadly happen frequently and the only way to fix the issue is to report the malicious ad to the advertisement provider.

Gavin, similarly to malicious ads slipping through the net at the bigger ad providers (i concur btw, it does happen), malware may slip through even the most seasoned IT guru's hard/software setups.

No one assumed the IT guy is wrong: heck the first to mention those two words was you, funnily enough in a claim that you were right.

From one geeky bastard to another: not the best conversation starter i'd say.

you lost me there Miel, everyone just very quick to say you are wrong and you have a virus/malware and its not the ad company.

Vlad is right that it can happen even to the IT guys but I would say that we are more likely to know when it has happened... usually because we were messing around and doing something we shouldn't ;p
