sounds like a rouge ad redirected you or you could have a bad extension installed that it presenting you with redirect ads

 

we don't allow redirect ads from our provider so if one slipped through from our end I apologize

 

let us know if it starts happening again

was it balanced when the redirect occurred?

 

have you tried using Strict?

 

i would either use Strict ... or use an adblocker ...

Seems like there may be a rogue ad on rotation. I've gotten it twice now on different days, but it redirects to a new page so there's nothing to click on - and if you go back to the page where it got served, other ads are displayed, so I haven't been able to nail down which element is responsible.

 

I'm going around hitting FPN articles with the dev console open and logging network activity to try and identify what it's coming from.

 

The URL that I got bumped to is:

 

http://ldasd.website/ln/bV5Yz3KFwhTD1xkrks95tfMovJYEoci2_NQ0jWAuuwvrMl_fh51kRRhd5KlIO2TM5du7T4iZan0rMpa1D1D6pNecxulflALr.WlhJyq9ozl5THg4wpGBNzyCstL0BArGkFVaEwvBTygdV5gmHWEd03.7qLLBDeMRMcD.jiYHRjS3DY_Eu35SOc43nxeihmnBfHSAyACOWFvHcRn_m4H8Kv_tgAhF1lnAl4uODAcZOSIW1yUNiEsse7Lp7v69qppm6CYA7Q4T.nL9A65Yjv58UmZ8ujMTQMo9ks3uqAeq.n5ghjjP5ImxY8gbQbZII1pnPk5ACsEd8c_J6VSjiwR85QIgn3pQF8iZ53dlHTPeBghQjIghJbV1yMXXhyozuTWn9Z2qeXyRm5Al0uJKji0m_5sCrSwoFvIXum9M_70NS0HVjhGO3d9pSwtoko28.Hiz

Looks like the page may be dynamically generated to make it harder to trace where it is coming from.

I was having the same problem with redirects over the last week. It only occurred in the evening (US).

 

I'm running Windows 10 with Edge Chromium as the browser. No extensions installed.

 

Moving tracking prevention to strict solved the problem for me.

@Steven P. I know it's not much information yet, but could we have our ad partners investigate this now that multiple people are experiencing it?

I will report this to our advertiser, hopefully they can track it.

This is now happening to me as well, I managed to find an extension that blocks the redirects https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/skip-redirect/jaoafjdoijdconemdmodhbfpianehlon/related?hl=en

 

But also ensure you have your browser setup correctly >> https://www.wikihow.com/Block-Page-Redirects << 

 

You can whitelist sites to allow safe redirect (if needed) as and when they are detected and blocked.

 

I have reported it and again asked them to concentrate on a way to not allow ads with any sort of redirect code in them, why that is so hard to do I do not know.

I wouldn't be surprised if they're hiding the redirect code behind remote code execution scripts; which also shouldn't be allowed or be highly scrutinized before being accepted ...
