Check the thread "is ats shutting down" in this forum, the answer to all of this is hinted at with the last few replys.

Below is the thread mentioned above, finding it was a huge PITA so there you go, it is a MUST see thread BTW...

The question asked was: "I was wondering if ATS is shutting down", the answer:

No mention of members offers to help with financing ?

Three issues:

1) It's expensive -- enterprise-level IT expensive

2) I no longer have the necessary free time to manage it

3) After a fix, we still have the fact that revenue barely supports keeping the lights on. So any money spent on the fix is a poor investment.

Fun fact: If only 1/3 of users were blocking ads (the Internet average), we'd be okay... in fact, we most likely would have had the resources and time to see this coming and take proactive measures.

Curious to know if at 9pm you get any issues using your phone for ATS or if its just your computer.

Might be cookie issues as others have suggested. If i get the redirects clearing those out usually stops it.

I hope that you get this
sorted out. I use the Brave browser that was recommended in another thread and it works very well here. It is a lot like chrome but uses much less processing power.

Do you not understand its you, your devices, settings, provider, registries, cookies, open tabs, browser etc etc etc....that's scrambling your things up?

90℅ of us are wondering what you're referring to...as we have no such issues...here...or anywhere online.

And that's 1/4 of a MILLION ATS members! Good luck, relative easy to rectify.

Good luck, God Bless.....MS

Happens to me the last couple of mornings. Get a super high pitched buzzing sound and the pop ups telling me I need to upgrade virus. Before the pop ups I couldn’t get in here on my laptop, again in the morning. Normally around 0430. Been happening for quite some time. Tomorrow I will use my phone to see what happens.

I've been studying this.
The attacks start after TWO BRIDGESTONE AD BANNERS (side & bottom) appear at the same time.
Still on chrome...seems to be settling down atm.


This is EXACTLY what happens to me.. The Bridgestone banners trigger a redirect.

Switching to FireFox (different browser) stops it for me.
It must be some infected cookie on the old browser.

Thank You.
I was just going to start a thread on this.
My browser was "taken over" or what ever it is called at 9.07 central time, God help me if I use the wrong term.
First I was redirected during session on ATS and then my browser malfunctioned.
I can use another browser, for other things but all my essentials are saved on the one that was attacked.

I just used two hours on remote view with my repair "Saint" to fix up this mess.
It is only on ATS I get this reaction.
This is very frustrating and it isn't the first time.

It's a cross site injection attack, the problem is with the ad agency.

You guys say this happens after 9pm on Chrome? I can create a closed environment, I'mma see what happens and get back with you guys.

This is going to be my job nowadays
might as well get some practice.
