Rogue Advert Reports

Question

Harley

Getting some really uncool fake tesco ad redirects using the mobile site. As soon as I load the main page, unless I click to the next link in approx 3 seconds I get this bullsh*t ad. Sorry for my language but I have been a very loyal customer for years and this really ticks me off. There's no plugins with android chrome and I'm just relying on its built in ad block. So whatever you changed, please undo. This is the kind of stuff I tolerate when I'm browsing filth. But not here.

Yup, same thing for me. It's on a bullsh*t "You got a virus on your phone!" with the Google 404 robot logo and if I hit back it just refreshes.

We can report suspicious ads to Google.

 

If possible save the ad image and copy / paste the URL of the image here so I can forward it to one of the Admins.

It's one of those vibrating ads btw. And it's not even affiliated with Tesco. This is truly the devil's work

Can anyone PM me the links as well? Might have them reported to MyWOT and the others so they'll be flagged as rogue by Google.

Harley, thank you for reporting this. We absolutely hate this type of ad too. Unfortunately malicious advertisers manage to slip these through from time to time.

 

Thank your for sending us the URL of the ad image; we will get the advertiser blocked.

The advertations has been extremely unpleasant lately, sometimes I get five popups in a row, it has forced me to download an browser like Mini Opera on my phone where I could block these kinds of popups.

No, it's a chunk of Base64. The decode is

Which is still largely meaningless unfortunately as it's not the link from where the nasty payload was served, but probably a URI query string.
