Spam ads and site rollback to March 18th
 
While trying to fix the spam ads, the hosting company has reverted Abandonia to a backup taken on March 18th (as you've probably noticed, that didn't help, but I've since found the cause and informed them how to fix it).
Some forum posts may have been lost in the process, I apologize for the inconvenience.

If it will stop popups almost every click then I can manage to remove my (not so many) posts about that. :smile2:

Ah, here I thought I may have upset the staff for mentioning that the site was infected/infested with malicious ads.

Good to see there's an effort in fixing this.

It hasn't, unfortunately. It seems the source of those has been injected into the site much earlier than that.
However, late on Friday I've identified what appears to be the source of the problem and notified the owners of the details. It should be a quick fix once they read my mail and forward it to their admin.

At this point, I'm not going to hold my breath. It was fun while it lasted.

I was entering here for playng daily quiz for the most time.

It's time to finish that.

However I will remember about abandonia everytime if I would like to play some DOS game that I don't have already on my HDD. :)

I'm not saying that things have gotten out of hand, but literally every single click on this site now opens up a new tab with an ad. I left my browser open to this site for the past hour. Ad-Blocker has recorded 1,000 items blocked without me clicking anything. I've been playing the daily quiz here for over a decade, but I think its time to call it quits.

Strange. I use only embedded Opera adblock, and it blocks, well, everything. I hit one redirect on the entering the page, close it, and after that page works as intended.

Nothing too "normal" in it, of course. :(

Friendly reminder: eXoDOS is a cosy place to be. ;)
