If you continue to get this after clearing History and Website data, then the websites you are visiting are allowing the java script to get to your phone. Stop using the website and complain to the webmaster of that website.

And the Amazon spoof isn't a bug. It is spam. Nothing to be done about it except to practice safe browsing methods, making sure you don't click on unknown links, and never downloading anything to your device except things from the App Store.

Websites use agencies that supply advertising, usually.

Bad acting ads get through because the agency or person putting the ads up do not care- they are getting paid regardless.

If it happens going to a specific website, guess what- they are serving you the ad.

You have 2 options,stop going to the site or use an ad blocker.
