Bad ads? Use link in first post to Report.

If that’s the case, the reporting website needs to be updated because it only asks for the URL of the page on which the ad is found, the exact opposite of what you are stating.

The point I am trying to make, which others have mentioned also, is that this reporting process looks like a scam to simply get permission to track our online history. Based on the information requested, there is no way this process can affect the ads we see.

I also get that one quite a bit. Whatever you do just X out and do not click on anything otherwise a download starts!! I had to wipe my OS earlier this year because I accidentally did

Yes that one randomly pops up for me too regularly. Annoying AF

There is a lot of great info there about online tracking and cookie tracking. I can see the concern and confusion. Most malicious ads are hijacked pages. If one wants them removed then the landing pages need to be cited. The delivery page, to your point, is not relevant.

Thanks for the clarification; I will report the landing pages going forward. However, I do think they form on the reporting website should be updated so that others are not confused in the same way.

Do we really need 6 ads embedded into the middle of each and every thread page? I mean really?

Getting both the Norton and Adobe for the past three days. Clearing the cache is only a temporary fix. It seems to only occur for me while I'm viewing the Unread Content. And for the first time today I received this from AT&T.

I copied and pasted the URL of what was showing for me on the wrx form and was nervous just trying that.

These are from the 3rd party Ad companies and reporting via the Bad Ads links sends it to their security team for addressing.

Kind of lame we are going out of our way to report a security issue and post a screenshot and we have to fill out a form and be ok with someone reviewing history. No thanks. I just want to know why we have this experience on GolfWRX and none of the other forums? What is the deal here?

We are now the world's largest golf forum and have to pay the bills.  3rd party ads pay the bills.  Nefarious actors try to take advantage of that as they know that as well.  We aren't the only site effected as I have seen them on yahoo and other places I have frequented.  We use one of the world's largest 3rd party fulfillment companies and thus have access to request support.  Your cooperation is appreciated.

That's why I filled out the form.  Just did a revisit and first time it hasn't popped up for awhile, so maybe the latest one I was getting is done . . . . or I've just jinxed myself, lol.
