Phishing

Admins,
Please take a look at this recent posting. Number 17 has a couple of screen shots. This is happening to most of us who are using iPads or other remote devices. It does not happen with our (at least mine) desktop pc. It is also only happening with this website (bmwlt.com).
Thank you!!!!

I get the same thing, Mike. Happens to me (on iPad only) here on LT forums, and also on the MOA forums. Commonality is vBulletin versions. Not positive that MOA forums are also hosted by Vertical Scope. Hope VS can fix this annoyance!

Re: Phishing

I responded in the thread. If you continue to see these, please let us know and provide as much detail as you can as requested:

1. Device/OS/browser you're using (iPad yes, but on safari?)
2. Geo-location (city/state - we ask for this because often times these are region based)
3. Redirect URL - if you are getting redirect, please copy/paste the URL
4. Screenshot(s)
5. Ad call - this is the best piece of evidence to help locate the source: right click on the ad itself and select either "inspect element" or "view frame source" (whichever you see). A new tab should open and display a bunch of code - copy and paste this code and report it to us.

Thanks for your cooperation on this.


Cheers,
Natalie

Re: Phishing

Per your request.
Attached are my latest pop-ups. It is a different url from the last time but the same ad. This url is ingmatic.com, where the last time this happened it was dabmobi.com. The second image mentions iPAD and Safari in the first line of text. I am also going to copy and post this reply in the Admin support section and will try to answer their questions as best as I can.

Please provide the following details so we can get alert our techs to get rid of these at once:

1. Device/OS/browser you're using (iPad yes, but on safari? Don't want to assume).
<<iPad and using Safari>>
2. Geo-location (city/state - we ask for this because often times these are region based).
<<Williamsburg, Virginia (mtrevelino), Lawrenceville, PA (Voyager), Texas (Dick)>>
3. Redirect URL - if you are getting redirect, please copy/paste the URL.
<<The url is at the top of the attached images>>
4. Screenshot(s).
<<See attachments>>
5. Ad call - this is the best piece of evidence to help locate the source: right click on (or hold down) the ad itself and select either "inspect element" or "view frame source" (whichever you see). A new tab should open and display a bunch of code - copy and paste this code and report it to us.
<<I cannot figure out how to right click on the iPad. When I hit the "cancel" button, it takes me to the second image.>>

Re: Phishing

Thank you for supplying as much information as you could, mtrevelino. On the iPad, when you hold down on an ad, a drop down menu appears. In that menu, at the top it shows the full URL (super long/complicated looking) which is the one we need. If you can take a screenshot of that or somehow copy that full URL, that would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you!

-Natalie
