Following a notification this morning of an update to a thread I've been following I was somewhat surprised to find Ads within individual posts in that thread. I ran C Cleaner to make sure that it wasn't an issue with my PC and then tried another browser. They don't seem to be present if the site is viewed in IE. Tried Chrome again and the Ads are still there. Tried my wife's laptop running Win10 and sure enough in Chrome there's the same issue.

I'll try some other browsers but as Chrome is widely used this is really irritating. The ads appearing seem to have no link to the posts they appear in. For example one of my posts has an Ad for a Sony 4K camcorder in them. An item that I have had no interest in whatsoever, neither have I searched camcorders in recent years.

Has the forum been hacked?
