I know that when I use the site on my phone I'll sometimes be redirected to the app store without clicking anything. Should I keep a list of apps that it wants me to download, or something?
That would be a start. Often, the page that redirected you also stays open in the browser so if you can grab the URL too, that would be great. Those ads are the worst so removing them as quickly as possible is a priority.

Did something change about the ads? 6 times in a row, they redirected me or had a pop up. I had a hard time just getting to this thread.
The first redirect was : 1398443509.rsc.cdn77.org
Popup : soft4update.whenupgradeswork.com
Thanks! We're looking into this and hopefully, they'll be removed quickly. These kinds of ads are unacceptable but we need to wait for the publishers to respond to our reports so their removal isn't an instant process unfortunately.
Pop-up + redirect: 011514.protect0r.com
There also one with a high pitch noise and popup but i cant get the url...

Definitely malicious. We'll get this taken care of ASAP assuming it came from us. You're sure it was on our end and not something else on your system?
Also, a word of caution to everyone, don't click the link she posted. I'll remove it as soon as we have it dealt with.
Yes. It came from my browser. My computer never does stuff like this and I just ran virus and malware scans and neither of them found anything.
I know it was your browser but you said you had a ton of tabs open. How do you know that it came from here?
I never said I had a ton of tabs open. I have very few tabs open most of the time. I know it came from you guys because like I said in my first post, the redirect was directly within the VGR tab and that is the tab where the malicious site was opened.
