    I do not know if anyone else is getting this but this bullshit is back in play again.
    1st - I haven't visited any sites like it says I did.
    2nd - I was checking AF msgs and the browser got took over before I could finish reading.
    3rd - I'm running Nougat 7.1.2

    No doubt a paid message by one of the AF sponsors, Cheetah Mobile.

    @bcrichster, I passed that up the chain. The higher ups need to deal with the ad network to take care of that.

    I promise I didn't tap on anything other than my keyboard and was in the middle of writing a reply to a PM when the browser was completely taken over, hence my bringing the subject to your attention. Plus if ya notice, I got the fake "you have a virus!" Browser hijack BS instead of a direct link to playstore app..

    @Phases Yes me, back in August.
    https://androidforums.com/threads/w...idforums-round-2.1125836/page-14#post-7588872
    For information, this came up on AF this morning. I know it's a fake ad, but others might not. Come to AF looking for help with an Android device and end up with something nasty on it instead, nice!!

    ...and I'm pretty sure that was a Cheetah Mobile Clean Master ad....in exactly the same prose as today's one.

    I do normally use ad-blocking on websites, including AF and Phandroid, and so not seen it since.

    You know I don't want to sound like a pork butt here buuuuutt....

    I really don't like the design!

    I can never find anything!

    I am getting hated by everyone because they keep telling me I am ******** because I keep posting things in the wrong place but I used to know where everything is but now I don't!

    Some one set us up the bomb!

    The new chrome stable automatically blocks those virus ads. FYI the AF security certificate expired so chrome is freaking out that I'm here now.

    Yep, chrome just told me it blocked an ad while I was browsing AF. I purposely pressed to let it so I could see where it would take me, screenshot attached.

    Getting browser warnings because apparently the site's security certificate has expired. Can someone pay the internet bill please?
