One page on which I've seen such adverts is a banner at the top here advertising a drinks flask for amazon: http://www.conceptart.org/forums/showthread.php/234083-Making-of-Dreadnought If anyone with noscript and adblockplus would visit this page, and report if they see an advert across the top it would let me know if it's just me. NO NEED at all to allow any of the scripts on that page, or any of the scripts on other domains it uses, I haven't allowed any scripts and I've still seen this advert thing.
Other adverts I've seen lately are the same sort of thing, plain images which would act as links if clicked on, fortunately the things I've been seeing don't yet appear to be the potentially dangerous flash adverts.
I'm not seeing adverts on every site, and I haven't been seeing any flash adverts or nasty intercative ones (yet), I'm just seeing adverts on some pages, the sort of pages I would expect to serve some ads if it weren't for the fact I have an adblocker and a script blocker.
So I need to work out, is what I'm seeing:
2.a symptom of some sort of adware infection, I've not downloaded anything lately, I can't see anything weird running in task manager and I haven't noticed any system changes, but this could be the case.
3.an indication that somehow either noscript or adblockplus is not working properly an somehow either scripts are being loaded or adverts from other sites are being loaded in the way they would for people lacking ad blockers.
How can I tell which it is.
Would looking at the html source of the page perhaps let me tell if the advert is a scriptless one built into the site or if it isn't let me know that I'm either infected with adware or have something wrong with noscript and abp?
