I'm getting them on both my phone and the gaming rig. I can understand it being malware on the gaming rig because it's not just me that uses it but it's only on BCF and nothing has been installed to my phone for months.

I'm getting them too. Annoying pop-up full page ads when clicking on a Forum. Only started today, and it's really pissing me off.

And me.

I have BCF whitelisted on AdBlock, because of losing various functionality on the site otherwise ands the ads aren't particularly intrusive. But this shit is a different ballgame - welcome to the blacklist, BCF Mad

I got a small window pop-over for an ebike company. Will take screenshots next time.

Thats the one but it has an overlay over the whole screen so its not a pop up as such (not a different tab). I've also had an Adobe and a Microsoft one.

They are like really crap, non-specific ads too. I keep expecting "Would you like a brain slug?". Or "Buy more hats!".

Be wary of those Ads as you call them as they may not necessarily be ads.

They may also be buttons with a graphic background image that looks like and ad.

By clicking on it in any way shape or form you may allow the next stage of the infiltration.

All it takes is a couple of those clicks to get their virus/malware in and functioning.

Not all viruses are maching killers, but they can be bloody annoying.

It may be nothing more than an ad, but there again.......just saying. Unless of course someone is intentionally playing with BCF code on the server, and hasn't got it right yet.

Right, I've prodded Korn but I think BCF has already exceeded its allocation of admin time for the year so who knows when he'll grace us with his presence. Sad

According to this, it should be possible to disable just the vignette ads for the site:

Will only take Korn a mo, once he's been prodded awake Wink

Ahhh, I thought it was something I had done Laughing

I was recently dicking about with my google account and agreed for [something something] so I thought oh bugger, that must be causing it.

But if its BCF's fault, then I feel much better Laughing

Im using the Brave browser on my phone and it seems pretty good at blocking stuff plus no ads when looking up youtube.
