    PC Keeper struck again while I was responding to Favorite Box art for a game.

    I don't know if Google is just having a delay in going through Bob's report, but I thought I'd post about it just in case.

    Now The Doctors are annoying me for the crime of browsing the AJ Rep thread.

    Smurf it, I'm installing Ad Blocker.

    It could be a cache thing. Not sure. I've noticed that I had the latter one blocked with /brains/ included, I've removed that so it's just blocked by the raw domain now. Beyond that, the other one was indeed blocked fine in my AdSense panel so I'm not really sure if it isn't the cache causing the issue.

    Personally, I get around most of these issues by having a very nice HOSTS file.

    Running a virus scan, but I've been getting redirected today

    lemode-mgz.com and one more I forgot to grab a link for...

    Nope it is the same place.



    WOW THIS IS TERRIBLE I CANNOT BROWSE D:

    I'm running a scan myself to make sure that it's not me.

    Since my virus scan finished I have had none, so maybe there was something going on here.


    EDIT: Nope I am still getting redirected.

    Well advertising.com was just giving malware through ads on a bunch of popular websites. It was announced today that it was happening. Sites like:

    huffingtonpost.com
    mandatory.com
    laweekly.com
    gooddrama.net
    fhm.com
    thewmurchannel.com
    buzzlie.com
    mojosavings.com
    houstonpress.com
    soapcentral.com
    theindychannel.com
    gamezone.com
    weatherbug.com

    to name a few... So a wide spread case of Malvertising. We may be in that network. So i'd advise virus scans for anyone experiencing it JUST IN CASE. Also if you visit sites like that, it's the AOL network.

    I'm not sure how it can be a cache thing when EoFF seems to be the only site I visit where it happens.

    Are you guys giving the urls of the sites you are being relinked to, or the ads? Can you give me both? I'm really not sure where to go on this at the moment, on the one hand I could keep blocking these sites until the cows come home but on the other hand it could be something else entirely and all this blocking won't help.

    EDIT: Never mind, finally found a decent help topic on this within Google AdSense forums and discovered that yes, the ad network has issues right now, notably with sites such as consumernews247.com amongst others. I'm going to disable ads for a while.

    Oh, I was just giving you the sites I was being redirected to.

    I was never on a page long enough to actually see what the ad was, it was ridiculous how quickly I was being redirected.

    'sokay, see my edit to the previous post. Ads will be disabled for a while. Hopefully Google AdSense will be better in a few days.
