Hello,

 

Something strange appears on my screen on last monday.

 

A mobireward pop up, tells me that i'm the 10000 members, and i win an iphone or an ipad. I must clik on "ok" to unlock the screen.

 

So, I took a capture and didn't follow the link. ''for me it's a joke, a hoak, may be a rogue".

 

I've a 3gs with Ios6 original one. I believed that Ios was "locked". If it's a rogue, how it appears on safari ?

 

I surf exclusively on the same securitys web sites (like G2G or Bleeping Computer, in french).

I found that page => apple support <= but the pops up are already blocked

 

My main problem in to found the way how "mobireward.org" appears, an how stop him?

I worried about a security risk.

 

 

Thanks for reading

    Seems like it was reported on TechFruit back in June.

     

    I've come across it again recently. Still can't really find a decent explanation of why it happens.

    Having the same probs too!!!

     

    It's really irritating with the popup whenever I do a search from iphone browsers. Be it Safari, download managers, etc.

     

    Having the popups since 16/10/12. I can't continue with the search unless I choose "OK". I had accidentally chosen "OK" for the first time. Afterwhich, whenever I received the "Mobirewards.org" popup I jz closed the entire app and reopen it.

     

    Is the anyone out there that could help to resolve this popup problems?

     

    Appreciate someone to help us to put a stop to it. Plssssssssssss!!!

     

    p.s. Noticed that my popup ends with an "s" instead of Mobireward.org. I realised they are playing around with the wordings for the popups thing.

    I'm having this problem on an irregular basis on gawker media websites - just before the page finshes loading it redirects to a mobirewards.org web page that puts up that pop up window.  Could it be a browser exploit in an advert?

    Are you connected to a public WiFi network? Many of the "open" onces can inject ads into your browser content.

    Hi Lawrence,

     

    It does it both when I'm out and about and just using 3G (I tend not to need public WiFi networks as 3G is good enough for what I need) and when I'm at home on our private WiFi.....it's the same ad all the time though so further to what I've said about it being on 3G and on the home WiFi I'm guessing it's not to do with open WiFi's injecting ads???

     

    Cheers

    It always happens to me on uberhumor.com. Every time i stop scrolling down it opens www.mobirewards.org on my iPod Touch 4th gen.

    Then don't go to uberhumor.com. Either the site gets paid for displaying the popup, or it's been hacked.

    Got a better idea throw your device to the garbage and never ever surface the internet lol.
