Overlay ad on iPad


Is anyone else experiencing an issue with an overlay ad taking over the iPad screen? This ad only shows up on the iPad and doesn’t show up on any other device and it’s only when people view the full site, not the mobile site. The ad appears to come from a company called Epom Magic.


Here’s a screenshot of the ad. It only displays through the 350x200 ad.


Here’s some of the code:

(function(d) {
var params =
id: “f63d3424-9350-495f-af0e-6b3f7ba4e120”,
d: “ZXBvbS5lbGl0ZWRhaWx5LmNvbQ==”,
wid: “438709”,
url: “http://epom.elitedaily.com”,
cb: (new Date()).getTime()
var qs = Object.keys(params).reduce(function(a, k){ a.push(k + ‘=’ + encodeURIComponent(params[k])); return a},[]).join(String.fromCharCode(38));
var s = d.createElement(‘script’); s.type=‘text/javascript’;s.async=true;
var p = ‘https:’ == document.location.protocol ? ‘https’ : ‘http’;
s.src = p + “://api.content-ad.net/Scripts/widget2.aspx?” + qs;

Here’s more of the javascript:

setTimeout(“epmclose053fde70.style.display = ‘block’;”,4E3);
var counter=0,
var a=document.getElementById(“epmclose053fde70”);


Here’s one of the ads:

I am also having this behavior reported to me, I have not seen it personally, but I don’t own anything produced by an Apple. :slight_smile:



It is not uncommon to see an influx of these types of ads during this time of year, but we are always here to help! Thank you @SlyBaldGuys and @Mscores for reaching out to Sovrn concerning these unwanted creatives.

We have identified the source of the overlay ad and we are currently blocking the responsible buyer from our exchange. Additionally, we recently paused a handful of campaigns who we believe are responsible for the mobile redirects.

If you have any other questions, feel free to reach out to publishersupport@sovrn.com and we will investigate further.
