Fucking Mobvertising all day

(7 Posts)

It took me 4 goes to get to site stuff.
My new window kept going to this fucking swamp advert site ads.mobvertising.net etc
This then takes me to App store

Been happening all day on Mumsnet when I refresh / open a new Tab or scroll.
Just Mumsnet, nowhere else.

I'm on iPad Air 2 with Safari, so can't block specific sites - another bone to pick with Apple
I've deleted History & website data, then rebooted. Doesn't stop the Mobbers.

Anyone else been Mobvertised ?
If this continues tomorrow, I'll just access Mumsnet via the Adblocker App.

I can stop it by switching off Java Script in Advanced, but then I can't post.
I'm posting this from the AdBlock App, which stops the mobbers / hackers.

< YOOHOO Mumsnet, I was forced to use AdBlock ! >

As soon as I switch on Java again, it happens again.
Particularly in Site Stuff, not so bad elsewhere.
hmm
Apps are always switched off in Safari, so it can't open what it wants, but when I return to Safari, I see it go to a rapid set of sites in succession.

Some really dodgy site names from my Web History list, see screenshot:

Thanks BigChoc, we'll send this over to our ads team to have a look.

Is anyone else having this issue?

Hi BigChoc, thanks for reporting this and sorry it's given you so much grief. We'll get right onto our ad providers to try and get this tracked down and removed.

I switched Java script back on this morning, to try.
Good news so far; the Mobvertising hasn't reappeared.
Looks like TechWizard zapped them
