    While browsing some series and looking up their info, I was suddenly redirected to some page telling me to buy McAfee software to prevent malicious viruses (or something like that, I didn't read too closely). This happened twice in a row, about 5 minutes apart. I only had a single tab open on my web browser, so I'm pretty sure it was an ad on Novel Updates that redirected me.

    EDIT: Happened again, took a screenshot.

    I'll note that although I have ad-block, I have it disabled for Novel Updates.

    this is THE thread anything related to ad issues should be posted in
    https://forum.novelupdates.com/threads/reporting-advertisements.32118/

    tony doesn't handle ads, his ads manager does, and that's the purpose of said thread.

    OK, I've reported it on the proper thread. Can a mod lock or delete this thread?
