We have been aware of these recent bad ads coming through as
well for the past few days. Just so that you know what we're doing on our
end behind the scenes, our Ad Ops team utilizes real-time automated scanning
technology running 24/7 to ensure the best ad quality is being delivered
to your users for every ad view. Unfortunately, this system has not been
successful in picking up all of the malicious mobile redirects that have
come through yet. This problem is also not isolated to Playwire and is
being experienced by users across the internet. The following link is
from Google and demonstrates the widespread nature of this issue: https://productforums.google.com/forum/#!msg/chrome/AzyvOJ1xcYg/L354tQk1BAAJ.
As we continue our investigation, we are raising the price floors and pausing specific ad providers we're working with to combat them being able to serve in our network. The domains we know of have already been blocked within all ad providers' interfaces.
This is our top priority right now, and are working to have this resolved immediately.
To help us out further, can you please try to obtain the following information about the complaints that surfaced on your end?
