Windows 7: KnowYourMeme redirects to some rouge antivirus site on my Android.

KnowYourMeme redirects to some rouge antivirus site on my Android.

This thread is similar to Kari's thread of 'Goodbye Failblog'. This is not about Windows that is why I posted here but this can happen with Windows too. (I use an ad blocker to get rid of many ads). Recently, I tried to surf the internet with my Android tablet. I was looking up a meme on Google and I picked KnowYourMeme link in the results as I have always trusted it to get meme related information. The website loads and it remains well for about 15 seconds then it automatically redirects me to some odd site with a quite real looking dialog box claiming that my device and browser had become a lot slower. Because I have some knowledge about computer security, I could easily avoid it and knew that it was a false message. However, any other user who has not got knowledge about these rogues could easily fall for it. It also happens every time I went to KnowYourMeme. It also happened with some other sites which use popup ads. This is just to warn you guys. I can post a screenshot of that thing later if anybody wants to see how it looks.
