    Please check your ad network. I just got a nasty popup on my phone trying to get me to download malware.

    It was my mobile device. I have an LG V10 android phone and I was browsing using chrome. The malware in the ad network redirected me to a site that claimed I had 4 viruses and it tries to entice you to download what I'd assume is malware. You could tell the url was shady, there was no way I was going to click OK.

    By the way I can't see your attachment.

    I can see it, not sure why it's not loading for you, but it looks different from what you're describing.

    I'll look into fixing this. Till then, delete your cookies and then browsing history on your phone to hopefully stop it for a while.

    Anyone else experienced this?

    I can see it fine too (on Chrome, iPhone, Safari, Firefox), although people need to be logged in to see attachments.

    @RasAlgethi and @therealdeal I disaled an addon that is supposed to make pages load faster, but could have been messing up images loading. Check to see if it loads now.

    @Juronimo, I'm still trying to figure out what ad could e doing this. The problem as thk explained to me is that if google is working with a trusted ad network, the company hosting the ad can get hacked, and so it's hard to tell where the problem is. I'm reporting it to google AdSense to try to get them to investigate. If you or anyone else gets the redirect, screen shot it or copy the URL so I can give it to google.
