Every second thread I open has a fiat ad (which would be the last car I would ever buy, after having nothing but trouble with a Punto a few years back!) and then I get this "cannot verify server" pop up constantly. Help!

Sorry - here's a pic.

Yes I'm getting this too.

Hi AgentProvocateur,

Thanks for the screenshot, let us know what device you're using and which browser and we can take a look.

AgentProvocateur Sun 28-Aug-16 21:21:53

It was on my iPad, using safari, on the mobile site.

If I use the mobile site on my Galaxy tablet i get a login screen for something called 'fiatprofessional', wonder if it's connected to this too?

Yes, I've been getting the exact same thing as Agent all day too. I'm also using the mobile site with Safari on an iPad.

It's still happening. Same details as the OP.

I am not sure if this is related, but when I try to open a certain thread in Chat I get this message from Kaspersky:

I am using a PC, and Firefox.

OP, here. This is still happening to me. Did tech get anywhere with it? Thanks.

Hi folks. Sorry for the delay on this. Thanks for the additional info. We'll pass this on to our ads team and update here when there's any information.

Hi There,

We have asked for fiat to be blocked, let us know if problem persists.

AgentProvocateur Sun 04-Sep-16 08:05:24

Thanks Angie.

The fiatprofessional login screen has popped up twice this morning but strangely it hadn't done so for the past 3 or 4 days

FathomsDeep Sun 04-Sep-16 13:18:06

I've just got the fiat pop up again. Safari on iPad.

AngieMumsnet (MNHQ) Sun 04-Sep-16 15:12:00

Ok looking into this, can you tell me if it only pops up with the fiat ad in view?

AgentProvocateur Sun 04-Sep-16 17:30:36

Yes, my problem was only when the fiat ad was at the top of the page.

AngieMumsnet (MNHQ) Sun 04-Sep-16 20:10:58

Ok, it's odd as Fiat is blocked but looks like they've mislabeled as another advertiser, will keep at it.

vindscreenviper Mon 05-Sep-16 09:10:42

Happened again about an hour ago, yes there was a fiat ad at the too of the page when the login popped up

I've been getting this since last week. Happened again this morning. iPhone 5s.

Tiggeryoubastard Mon 05-Sep-16 09:17:09

Sorry - iPhone 5s on safari.
