guardian | scam

sometimes advertising goes wrong. when i visited the website of the guardian newspaper, a window popped up which provided no way out. it’s in german and claims that i’m the winner of a smartphone and should click “OK”.

there is no “OK” (which i wouldn’t have clicked anyway), only a “close” (german: “schließen”) button which probably links to a virus infected website. no x to get rid of the ad.

what i did was close the browser tab. not a real pleasant visit.

no way out
