Redirect ads

I opened a thread and was redirected to a full page ad site

consumer****247.com/fd/dietluma/indexdr.html ....

If a complaint can be made to the add provider, that would be appreciated!

Don't forget what the H stands for.

Thanks for this info. Apparently there is some sort of adsense redirection exploit going on these last few days, Google should be on this matter.

I'll add this event to a report.

Thanks again

(ps: I've masked the url)

Also, if anyone else experiences this issue please report it on this thread - if you happen to describe the ad itself even better, including its URL (right click copy/paste).

Regarding that url in particular, Google is apparently stating this:
Quote
This ad is a known bad ad and our malvertising team is actively working on blocking it across the network as we speak. In addition to blocking it via your account, please do file feedback directly with AdWords here: https://support.google.com/adwords/troubleshooter/4578507

And more recently:

Thanks for sending us this information. I've forwarded it to the AdWords malvertising team for their ongoing investigation. At this point, the redirect issue is known and our engineers are currently working on a fix as we speak. It appears to be one source that is changing destination URLs. Hopefully a permanent fix should be delivered today or ASAP.

These have been really bad, took me a bunch of tries just to be able to get to this thread without getting redirected

Urls are like
lemode dash mgz dot com/sc/gm722-2310/special-report.html
lemode dash mgz dot com/fd/9701/special-report.html
lemode dash mgz dot com/fd/5678/special-report.html

(with dash - and dot .)

Not clear what to enter on the google troubleshooter since I only see the landing page.

Don't forget what the H stands for.

They're baaaaaaaaaaaaack

I really don't like the idea of the CHDK forum sending people to crapware / malware :(

url was
softwareupdaterlp dot com/campaign/chaselove6/?ID=trillmstrcpi2&sub=trillmstrcpi2&S2=w06EVH14ST6IALQHGDNU5ML4
