    So ya, as per title i'm getting audio ads (for Lemsip and other medicine like stuff for some bizarre reason :unsure: ) while browsing GBAtemp, think they're coming from something that links to "www.mojo24.com" (might not be though, was only obvious ad on page at the time)

    So more of an fyi than anything as adblock is being turned back on for now :-(

    I thought the only ads GBAtemp even had are the nds-card sponsor ads?

    Haha, I get heaps of those. Took me ages to figure out they were coming from GBAtemp.

    I have reported the problem repeatedly but the ad network only replied this:

    In short, the only way is to follow this guide: http://filetrip.net/view?iIDBID2cPS
    figure out the full advert URL as shown in the above guide; then e-mail or PM it to me, and I can forward it to our ad network so that they filter it out.

    Again, cannot be sure it was definitely coming from this ad, but was certainly coming from GBAtemp.

    Also, yay for the code refusing to indent in the nice way firebug had it laid out >.<

    Thank god. I thought I was going insane. I was sitting in Uni listening to music and browsing the Temp and hearing ads. I was severely weirded out since I couldn't see anything that would be making the sounds. It was just audio. Weird for an ad campaign.
    Unfortunately I can't help since all I did to fix it was install Adblock.

    Does that guide also work when the URLs are protected by heavily obfuscated and encrypted javascript, along with anti-firebug code?

    I heard one of these when I was browsing on a PC at university. Ugh, especially in a quiet lab.

    Did the same.

    Wow, I was just getting ready to add *.gbatemp.net to my ad blocker whitelist when I saw this thread. Please LMK when this issue is fixed; I really want to support GBA Temp!

    Just neuter flash with something like Flashblock. That will also help with all the flash exploits going around.

    That's not from the 'Temp, that's from a piece of software you installed where you probably just spammed the 'next' button and it installed some shitty adware.

    Right now I get ads from a couple of swedish online bookstores, after browsing said stores, so that's all well and good for me :) However, before I got those annoying "meed local russian maids and fuck them tonight!!"-ads with semi-nude girls..
    Oh well, I'll be sure to follow that guide if I'd need it some day :)

    All I'm getting now are gaming/electronics related text ads from Google. I am completely okay with those.
