GBA Mobile malware ads

ranson | Posted in General Questions on

Is anyone else getting really obnoxious pop-up ads when loading GBA on a mobile phone? I feel like this has been going on for several months.

Essentially, every couple of times I open a GBA page on a mobile phone, I get sent to a website that’s pushing malware. It’s accompanied by an alert windows and buzzing. Furthermore, they actually keep forwarding you through several pages, so the back-button doesn’t bring you back to the GBA page you were on.
