Malware pop up not detected

Recommended Posts

It happened to me too a few months ago - several times.

I don't remember exactly if I went on once and see what would happen by clicking 'OK' or not but I remember I decided it was to be ignored - and I did it.

I used the 'go back' function to move away from the shown screen.

Then I closed all browsing windows and started them again to finish my work.

After a few times it stopped showing - and everything was perfectly alright ;-)

Hi helloball,

These types of ads are browser related. This is caused by the way most browsers handle redirections executed by javascript code.  Most browsers don't do a great job of preventing these redirects, which also cause ad pop-ups.  Advertising affiliates are aware of this, and exploit this weakness.  Even if an  advertising affiliate is shut down for using this exploit, they just come back with a different affiliate id and are right back at it.

The best way to block these pop-ups are to try a different browsers, disable javascript, install a browser with ad blocking (like Opera), and/or install Ad-block Plus.

If you encounter these pop-ups again, back out of them using Android's back key. Also, clearing your history and cache will help stop the ads from reoccurring.
