Came over to the site, and an ad came up, along with the audio "You've won". It flashes between white and pink, saying "This is not a joke, you're the 100,000th visitor."

I didn't click on it, but generally these things will take you to a page to get a large gift card, free TV etc. I've never known any of them to be all that legit.

Most places I don't pay any attention to the ads, but I believe the ads here aren't from Google and you have a bit more control.

If it is legit, and I just gave away my chance at a free new TV, I don't think I want to know.

I laughed when I saw that ad. I have seen the post counts thread, do they honestly think I would believe a number as low as 100,000? :lol:

This ad is surely not from us and SHOULD NOT have audio or anything like that. So, I need to find the ad provider is came from and close it down. Augh! Sorry!

No idea where this is from I am sorry to say and I have not seen it.

Is it a ad that pops over your browser? Pops under? Is it a page by itself?

I am using FireFox. (In case it matters.)

Screen shot anyone?

Thanks

Firefox, a box pops up in a new tab -- something about three questions .

Sounds almost like a browser virus or something as I can not find anything directly and I would also not allow for such an ad to open a new browser tab/window unless an ad was clicked.

Not saying that was it, but I do know that sometimes if you visit a site that has an "issue" then when you go to other sites such things can continue to happen.

I looked over the PHP files and the logs, I do not see anything in regards to an intrusion into the code here.

Sorry again for the issue you are seeing.

Interesting, I've only had this problem on DBSTalk, so I'm not sure what's up then... Using IE8.

I got that ad yesterday while at work using IE8.
Never got it at home using Firefox.
