What the heck is happening?

Recommended Posts

This site is totally screwed up right now.  I'll be reading a thread or typing out a post and all of a sudden it routes to a page acting like it's trying to download some type of antivirus software.

 

I have to immediately click the back button or close completely out of it to stop it.

 

It needs cleaned up NOW!!!!

Not sure.  Haven't seen that happen to me.  You're the only one I've seen report it (so far).

 

Desktop or mobile?


It happened to me a few times as well. Desktop

Desktop.  This is what shows up. Everytime I open the HB page I am redirected to this and one other site warning me I am out of date and make sure I download Adobe Flash Player.  I use it on a few games I play and have not gotten the warning from them. This is a royal pain in the a$$.

@BigRedMax A lot of us are playing ball and allowing ad impressions to help you out. But you need to meet us halfway. Better vet the ads you're using to prevent the kinds of problems BRB and TonyStalloni are describing, and for god's sake choose static ads, not dynamic.

They have added additional malware scanning and have blocked the two items posted earlier. If you get more please post them in this thread so they can be blocked as well.

Most likely this isn't the Huskerboard advertisements doing anything.  I'm saying this from a perspective as a computer guy and website hosting person since the 1990's...so this is my professional take.

 

The ads are served up from a domain registered in June of this year.  This domain has no attachment to the advertisement company @BigRedMax uses. 

 

I have a system that parses EVERY SINGLE URL...including advertisement domains...on my entire internet connection.  It logs them, notes if they are spam/adware/malware and blocks them.  This isn't done at the browser level, it's done at the internet level...all my traffic goes through this little device that does this. 

 

I looked for your URL's you're getting for those Adobe Flash updates.  They're not present.  This means I can honestly say it's not being served up by Huskerboard.com...nor its ads.

 

This is most likely an adware infection on your local PC or browser. 

 

If you're running Windows, download Malwarebytes Free version, install, and scan.  That should remove it.

 

If you're running Linux or Mac, you'll need to scrub your cache out of whatever browser you're using and if that doesn't work, create a profile from scratch and delete the old one manually.

It's definitely attached to HuskerBoard at some level, or it'd be happening all over the internet for them.

Yeah if it was, I'd definitely see it.  I log everything with this device.  I don't see either of those URL's in my logging...that's URL's offered up by both huskerboard.com and EVERY advertiser BigRedMax has.

 

This system is absolute...if that URL was being offered up for everyone on this forum...I'd see it in the logs.  I'm just not seeing it here and it leads me to believe that it's on the browsers or system he's running currently.

 

Some adware can target specific URL's or most visited websites.  I think that's happening here and it's making him think it's from the huskerboard.  I'd bet my entire years salary that it's his individual system though...I'm 99.9% sure it is.

Just now happened again at 1:45pm.  I was on the recruiting board.

 

What browser you using?  I suspect Chrome.

Safari 

 

Remove your entire web history, cache, and all cookies in Safari...if you're an expert at this it should be simple to do.  If not, go look up how to 'reset Safari' and do that.

 

Then go here:

 

https://www.malwarebytes.com/mac/

 

Install and run, clean everything.  Make sure Safari isn't running when you do.

 

If you're not into the 14 day trial route:

 

https://www.bitdefender.com/solutions/adware-removal-tool.html

 

Let me know how it works out. 

 

I guarantee you this isn't being served up by Huskerboard.com.  I just did a logging on the server for 30 straight minutes.  I visited every thread I'm subscribed to in every single forum and then just randomly clicked on various threads.  No evidence at all is presenting itself and if this were from huskerboard.com, I'd definitely see something in those logs.
