    Stratics is good, its one of the banner ads.. a pop up saying that theres a "virus on your tablet.. click ok to remove" and it will redirect you to some knock-off anti-virus malware.

    I am not getting the pop up now, I always open Uhalll first as it's bookmarked, I'm using Amazon's Silk browser (which sucks) figured it was a banner add but ya never know

    I hate those. On a forum elsewhere that I help moderate, we recently got rid of an ad that claims the user isn't set up to read private messages, tricking the unsavvy into downloading a browser hijacker.

    Hmm. Yeah, I think you're right, it's a value click media ad. It doesn't show on Apple stuff either, apparently. I'll ask them if we can remove that.
