For two days now, on attempting to login to BBO I can't get past a 'pop up' inviting me to answer a question to win an iPhone. This 'hijack' seems to be associated with the side adverts to book a holiday with expedia.

Still happening . . . the advert that it seems to be associated with the Expedia add for 40% off hotel rooms.

Please see if it's still happening. I removed almost all ads from BBO trying to block this hijack.

He said it's an iPhone, not a PC.

when the side add changed from expedia to Roberta Arnolds cruise I was able to log-in.

Sorry, I'm not complaining, I know it's difficult, I am just submitting information which I hope will be helpful in tracking it down.

Thanks. I put some ads back today to check whether the hijacks were blocked - and they weren't. That's why they resurfaced. Let me know if you still see them in the next few hours please.

Thank you. So I didn't catch it yet. OK, please try again in a couple more hours, I just deactivated another batch.

Yeah but I just did this, it takes a while until the changes "take". It's not instant. See if it's better tomorrow or a bit later today.
