just out of curiosity, I'm assuming it's just on OSNN that this is happening and not other sites.

I've been reading about this recently where ISP's are inserting ads via javascript to all http traffic via a transparent proxy.. but that would effect every site, not just OSNN..


no m8, its not that, nice clean rig here, after all i am a osnn vet :)

Yeah, it's happened to me once, and that was just on OSNN. I'm pretty sure it's a case of naughty advertisers.

So far, it's only happened on OSNN. I thought I clicked on the wrong favourites at first, but realised that I don't keep 888.com or some of the other advertised sites in favourites.

Ah! I just had one at work, and it was one of those 888 ads. The cheeky swine!

What are you clicking on when it happens?

Never happens to me is why I ask.

Just getting on to OSNN site that's all. Didn't click anything else. Only happened when using FF.

EDIT: Hey, just got the 888.com ad when using IE6 on XP. :( So far it hasn't affect me when using IE7 on Vista.

Re: Details for 888 website ad problem on OSNN

Ok it just happened again to me, but I got some details for you guys.

Firstly, it finds the link:

http://ad.doubleclick.net/adi/N1684.YesUp/B1292088.2;sz=800x600;kw=[keyword];ord=[timestamp]?

which then turns into:

http://www.888.com/?l=35&sr=668777&fs=1&flag=1001

And this took me completely away from OSNN and to that crappy gambling site. I've attached a screenshot too.

Hope this helps!

Oh, and I'm using IE7 on XP.

Add this to your hosts file:

127.0.0.1 ad.doubleclick.net

Definately not something I want, I hate ads that introduce intermission pages or have annoying audio.

I'll look over the details tonight, thanks for posting information and screenshots makes things alot easier to track down!

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?

Impressed you have kept this alive this long EP! So many sites have come and gone. :(

Just did some crude math and I apparently joined almost 18yrs ago, how is that possible???
