Bad Ads Return on Sonic Message Boards

Bad Ads Return on Sonic Message Boards

by August 10, 2000

Did you notice something this evening on several Sonic message boards hosted on EZBoard?  Chances are the ad banner included in the pages showed something like this–*New* then an underlined boxed Pic1, an underlined boxed Pic2, and so on all the way to Pic5.  If you clicked on this banner, it redirected you to a gateway to a celebrity ‘hot pics’ site, most likely pornography.  This isn’t the first time this has happened, as we investigated upon the first occurrence.  It looks like as of this update, a new ad has been in place all over the Sonic MBs, looking to be the only ad showcased.  However, the celebrity porn site gateway banner also was the only ad showing on Sonic MBs.  No word yet on whether this is a server problem.
