Are you a victim of malvertising?
It's been brought to my attention that Brickset has been displaying malicious adverts (malvertising
) particularly when viewed on mobile devices via 3G/4G.
I have not experienced it, and if you are logged into the site neither will you because ads are not displayed to members.
However, if you are not logged in and you are seeing Brickset.com seemingly being hijacked and you're sent off elsewhere or you see pop-up windows encouraging you to do something dodgy, please let me know the following:
- how you are accessing the site
- what the advert was
- what it wanted you to do
I recently changed advertising networks so the new one could be the cause. If so I will revert to the old one if it can be proven.
