Just got taken over by a page saying my phone was 28.2% infected by 4 viruses from recent viitd to ault sites. Complete with fake old Google logo.

Time to give up and install an ad blocker, I'm afraid.

I just had something pop up matching that description when I was trying to view the Arriva fleet list on my phone.

If anyone sees anything like this, could you please let us know asap? A screenshot would be handy, so it can be looked into.

This is what I got last night and annoyingly again this morning thanks to my phones annoying new browser that I keep forgetting to close the windows properly.

Had the same appear on other sites like Bustimes, the translation thing is just my phone bringing that up and couldn't get rid of it long enough for a screenshot.

Like Jimmi and BusLoverMum, I have also received a similar message when using the internet on my mobile. However I don't think the problem is restricted to just this site as I'm sure it has happened on others too.

EDIT: The one I get is the same as Beefcake's

Thanks. It's similar to what I've witnessed on other sites, and it appears to be down to Google's vetting of ads.

It's really concerning that this is affecting users though, and I'll flag it up.

Please keep reporting in the meantime.

Jimmi's was identical to mine. I'd just posted in the arriva news thread when it came up - not as a pop up, either, as chrome still said I had the same number of tabs. I navigated away using my bookmarks, rather than clicking on any crosses. It was all the more alarming because it triggered a tone and made my phone vibrate when it appeared. I could imagine someone like my MIL being quite thrown if she got this.

Have never successfully taken a screenshot on my phone Blush
