OOPS.

I take that back.

An ad with all Asian characters just popped up after I signed off.

Seemed like a legitimate ad, so I'm not concerned.

Re: Japanese or Chinese?

Asian characters and gibberish both seem to be gone, so somebody corrected the problem.

Sorry, I'm technology challenged.

Anyway, it's been all good so far today.

Sometimes on the right, sometimes below, sometimes top, right, and below..

Always appears in the ad pop up spaces.

Why don't I see this problem on other forums even though I'm using the same browsers?

Copied this a few minutes ago:

this.altsrc = '\\\\';this.callbackName = '__dvredirect_callback_' + this.rand;var thisRedirect = this;window[this.callbackName] = function () { return thisRedirect; };var src = 'https://rtbcdn.doubleverify.com/bsredirect5.js?callback=' + this.callbackName;document.write('');}
Hello,

Where did you find this odd piece of code?

Re: Japanese or Chinese?

Hello all,

After looking into this further and communicating with Google, here's what they have reported back to us:

---

This issue is fixed and will be released in early December. The exact ETA is still unavailable because there is a code freeze in place for the rest of the month.

The issue is only seen with certain versions of IE. In certain situations when text ads are rendered the encoding that describes the format does not get set correctly. This causes the unexpected foreign characters.

It is worth pointing out that this is also occurring for a few other publishers as well but on a small scale.

Re: Japanese or Chinese?

Hello,

We're still trying sort out why the ad slots are broken by Chinese characters.

We'll keep you posted.

Re: Japanese or Chinese?

Since you have Chrome, try adding the Adblock add-on. I use it on Firefox and it works very well. As a second layer, you can also add Ghostery, which stops web bugs and such. I enable all blocking, and just click it to pause blocking or whitelist the site if it interferes with any browsing. You can always remove or disable them anytime.

I also pause them occasionally to click on some ads here to feed the site. There are more solutions, but if those don't work great, I'd do a scan of your system to see if it's a response back from your box.

I've gotten the same gibberish using Google or Internet Explorer.

I still cannot understand how the site's administrative team doesn't see the trash.

Well I'd guess since I started the thread/question, there's at least two people who see the "gibberish". LOL

Four sections of gibberish today. New record.

Top, two on the right, and the bottom
