Cooking videos?


Is anybody else getting auto-play cooking videos embedded in the Premium site?

Has the site been hacked or what is going on? This doesn’t feel like a Thurrott thing.

    (I have contacted support, just wanted to know if everybody is getting this spam).

    It has been embedded "in" my comment above.

    I read a couple of new forum threads and saw the video and assumed that a spammer had posted the threads, then I looked again and realised that the posts were from respected posters.

    Adverts everywhere for me. I slightly appreciate the education on using dry and fresh herbs though.

    Yes. I have full ads on the site. Auto play videos - currently two. One in-line and one PiP -still image ads, and interstitials. Noticed it last night, figured it was some sort of site issue.

    My god, yes. I opened an article and there are multiple ads including the cooking video. Yikes!

    I’ve seen the cooking video too plus other advertising.

      The other advertising, I mentioned only appears on mobile, not desktop.
