Redirected (At random) to a malware site when browsing

  1. For the last 15 minutes when I have attempted to click a link, it will, completely at random link me to

    Warning, link above is a malware attempt.
    It seems to be happening randomly but stops if I turn my Adblock plus on (Which is why I have it in the first place)
    Can someone look into it ASAP? It's not my PC, it's happening on 1 PC and a laptop, which are on separate networks.
  2. You have malware on your computer most likely. a browser extension or app that is interrupting your browsing to redirect you. You need to run your anti-virus. and double check what browser extensions you have enabled/installed.
  3. maybe they were both exposed to the same malware, or installed the same app piggybacked onto some other app you installed.
  4. I had someone else report this too, I have blocked that domain but if you can help describe what ads were showing when it happens it can help me find the ad and block that entire account

  5. I had this when i logged in around an hour ago too. I just thought my computer was messing but seems im not the only one...
  6. It happens too quickly to get the advert, in question, I have a maximum of 1 or 2 seconds in which the site is loading before I get redirected.
  7. I don't know how long it takes google to apply the block, but I am reviewing all new ads right now and blocking those fishy ones "DOWNLOAD NOW"

  8. Just to be safe Josh, I would reccomend you run Malware Anti-Malware, its free and worth it. If something does come up it'll remove it for you ;)
