While browsing Gamefaqs on my phone I got two pop ups back to back from "nym1.ib.adnxs.com". I'm wondering what that is.

The phone is a Galaxy S3 using Chrome. Not rooted. Have not installed apps from anywhere other than the play store.

When I google it I only get results for people having that sort of issue on their computers.

You need more adblock, I only browse gamefaqs on firefox mobile with adblock beause of all the irritating ads moving the page around as it loads.

I'm wondering if it's a problem with Gamefaqs adhost service or a problem with my phone.

Don't know, I've gotten 1 of those ads that blocks out your screen and that was it, I switched to firefox with adblock.
1 annoying ad and gamefaq lost ad revenue from me.

This isn't really an "ad" but a pop up dialogue box with "ok and cancel". I think the ones I got were about something that sounded like a mobile game.

I just started getting this tonight. I first checked recently updated apps to make sure I hadn't downloaded something malicious. It only appears on GameFAQs and others are reporting it too, so that must not be it.

Looks like a problem on gamefaqs.
