    Eew, that doesn't look like something BYC is supposed to have. Hopefully Nifty can get somebody to look into fixing that before anyone clicks it. :) Does it pop up every time you visit?

    Thanks for the report, we've escalated this to our team to find and hopefully nuke it!

    Possibly a problem on your android device.
    You might try downloading Clean Master or some other antivirus.

    It's probably not device specific. Usually it's a bad adverser that gets through Google's advertising system's filters. We have the tricky job to try to figure out which advertiser it is so we can get them blocked.
