Advertisements redirect?

edited February 8 in General Discussions

So i noticed a lot of people have complained about their domain redirecting them to advertisements, and even some people who had their profiles suspended.

Here are what I've seen:

I went on investigation and i clicked on the domain, and pressed "Ctrl+ S" to save the html file before it redirected me, When i open up the file it contains javascript for "www.google.com/adsense/domains"

I searched around, and it turns out "malwertising" someone is attacking websites and injecting some kind of malicious code that redirects people to another website. And no this isn't browser redirect virus.

Anyhow hope this makes sense,I'm just a bit concerned and i could be wrong but I've seen this same website from another domain that was actually stolen (When domain expires but has high popularity some third party claimed it and placed this same thing onto it)

*Stay safe everyone :)
