    In recent weeks now points to

    Adguard blocks this which means it blocks EVERYTHING on Engadget which used to be (afaik) a trustworthy site for many years.

    So now no pages get loaded at least on Android, I haven't tested on PC.

    I've searched guce advertising and some sites say it's malware that is installed on a users system. It doesn't say it's an actual domain and (maybe?) More concerning is that Engadget is redirecting to that URL and I wonder if they even know it. Why would you redirect through a known malware site that then redirects back to the actual tech news site on purpose?

    I know this is maybe skirting the lines of relevance for this forum but I'm curious about people's thoughts on this and what may be going on.
