Ads Possibly Causing Redirects

kasty 7,424 10,227 August 17, 2014 at 02:18 PM
Recently while surfing SD on two different computers using Chrome, I get redirected to some site saying you need to do some crucial update for Chrome. Clearly fishy.

I was able to catch the redirect, so you might be able to figure out if one of your ads is causing this.

Code:

EDIT: ironically as I was clicking through the SIS thread about the Kaspersky alerts, I got another bad ad. added the link above.

I've been having some similar weird issues where I get redirected to other websites also. It started yesterday and I'm still having issues with it today. It is happening in Firefox and Internet Explorer.

I've been having the same issue with Internet Explorer for a week or so now.

Same today with Chrome, I was reading a thread when the page jumped to sandrasoft dot com, saying I needed to update my flash player. Looking through my history, a link similar to the one posted by kasty shows up.

I was too redirected a couple of times in the last few hours.I was warned by chrome that
1.Phishing site
2.From Symantec :Fake site redirect or something like that
3.the next time asked me to download a file to upgrade media player

All the above were for different times i tried to login and access the drugstore deals thread after clearing my cookies and all.
Iam not tech savvy in these things,but i took a screenshot of the redirects.
This must be something.

I got this redirect yesterday

weinstallweb .com/go /lights...

Checks your bookmarks as well, because I found it in one of my bookmarks this morning.
I ran my scans, etc and found a few issues.
It was my fault though because I had turned off my blocker and forgot to turn it back on.

Shout out to cgrady for the prompt help worship

I don't generally have issue with SD and redirects.

Receiving more and more frequently from pretty much all pages with ads, whether it is Inbox or main page or individual forums. Mostly links to:

However will occasionally go to other channels.

Got a very similar redirect a few minutes ago.

http ://www.youradexchange.com/script/pop_packcpm.php?k=53f4ea62627101521963.1935444&h=e381b0262c1e847255555a5617e2be15ab8bbf34&id=0&ban=1521963&r=276966&ref=h&data=&subid=&new=1&exp=prpd&dx=%3D%3DwD

redirecting to
