Infected Ads on your site

While browing tonight, via Chrome a full screen take-over-your-browser-window ad popped up.

It told me my computer was infected. Then I attempted to close the tab and it of course popped up the "leave this page" dialog box. When I clicked it (in the browser, not the custom one they had on their popup), the page reloaded and I was trapped.

YOU NEED TO DO SOMETHING ABOUT THE ADVERTISERS THAT PROVIDE ADS TO YOUR SITE.

See the attachment for the screenshot. This is worst type of behavior from an ad-supported site.

Hi there, thanks for the report. I'll let our ad provider know asap!

If you could visit this URL and attach or paste the contents here it will list all the ads that were sent to you from our ad provider while browsing our site so our ad provider can narrow it down... http://mb.zam.com/mb/History

Thank you!

It just happened again. The offending domain is "undecorated.pw".

Oddly, it seems to happen most when I'm looking at "Loot Alert". Try it out, it's fun to get your browser hijacked.

I've been trying the past few days to have it happen to me so I could catch it and run http://mb.zam.com/mb/History so i can get the ad provider and ad id. I'll keep trying. It must be very sneaky because we use an ad scanning service that is suppose to catch this.

Since it seems to be happening to you a lot. I'm going to give your account premium for a month.

Sorry for the trouble!
