We don't want those ads here either, but they are taking advantage of an exploit in site communication with the ad networks that provide our legit ads.

In some cases, these ads also get on your browser through other apps on your device, so if you installed any other apps shortly before noticing these turning up, try uninstalling and see if they continue

Thanks I’ll send it your way if I get another! And I’m on a virtual machine so I shouldn’t have any apps causing this.

Good to know. I’ll try it on my computer without running the virtual machine to see if it still triggers.

What is with the “adds” on this site recently?

I keep getting pop up adds that redirect to fake vpn sights claiming I have multiple viruses (on my virtual machine) and links to click on to “repair” or “fix” my device that are likely full of actual viruses. These kinds of adverts should NOT be allowed here.
