Anyone else getting weird ads?

Since the 404 web page thing earlier, every time I open a thread I'm getting a Chinese Global Television Network (CTGN) ad.

All the ads popping up are propaganda e.g. Muslim Uighers being saved from radicalism, visit Xinjiang for holidays, how Trump vs TikTok, how China's economy is thriving during Covid, go on holiday to Tibet, etc etc.

CTGN is a Chinese state sponsored tv network.
I'm not getting these ads on any other web site.
Has MN been hacked?

I've also posted this in site stuff.

I'm not seeing that. Can you post a screenshot?

It won't let me post a screenshot here but have attached photos.

MN HQ are looking into it now.

Same here, although I hadn’t really taken much notice.

The one where serious minded young oriental women are very keen to meet older European men (not the exact wording btw) made me HmmConfused
