    That happened pretty much just like the above to the Cyanide & Happiness web comic website - turned out for them it was one of the adverts amongst the selection that rotated around on their website at the time. The offending advert was tracked down and taken out of rotation by them or their advertising people.

    Not sure if that's the case in this ... er ... case, but figured I'd mention it nonetheless.

    Which seems to be a fairly notorious attack page from what I've been able to find.
    Well, my advertising company is on the case now...

    So if anyone gets it, please DO post here, preferably with the URL you were redirected to... But what ever you do PLEASE DO post that it happened!

    IT IS VITALLY IMPORTANT ANY SUCH REDIRECTION IS POSTED HERE IN THIS THREAD SO WE CAN BUILD UP A PICTURE OF THE PROBLEM. IF ONLY SO WE KNOW IT IS STILL HAPPENING!

    3:14, closed IE & opened a small window "AV 8 has detected a threat. Click here to begin scanning." When you try to close it, it hijacks to the fake virus scanner. Here is the link for my history it hijacked to:

    http://7a831.trendsecure49.com/xmsps...16a=fzlzvjkfvo

    Did not see which ad was up.

    Wow, while I went to view THIS thread it re-directed me to: http://febdl.trendsecure50.com/?id=2...30e3a&vb=1&s=1 - I think it was a credit card ad.

    Can I ask you folks to all help out with this issue please? All you have to do is run a single program in the background to help me!

    All it requires is downloading a simple monitoring program called "Fiddler" which tracks all web requests/response. The plan would then be, when you get a malware redirection, I (or you) can easily look up the request to the advertising feed that produced the advert, and the response that came back to result in the redirection? This would give invaluable information to pinpoint the cause!


    It's very straight forward:-
    1) Download and install Fiddler2 - http://www.fiddler2.com/fiddler2/version.asp
    2) Ensure you run it all the time (or at least while on HPotD).

    That's it!


    Now! If/when you get a malware redirection, before doing anything else, with Fiddler do:-
    File > Export Sessions > All Sessions, and email the file to me. I can then look at the logs myself and get the info


    If you want to look at the problem yourself (not recommended) then:-
     

    1) With the "Find" option along the top row (pair of binoculars next to it), search for "adtechus". This will highlight every request to advertising feed in yellow (in the left hand window/list).
    2) Find the last one in the list (should be from the host adserver.adtechus.com) and select it, and then in the two right hand windows select "Raw View".
    3) What you'll see is something like this:-
    Code:
    GET http://adserver.adtechus.com/addyn/3.0/5224/1274707/0/225/ADTECH;loc=100;target=_blank;key=key1+key2+key3+key4;grp=[group];misc=1293117691969 HTTP/1.1
    Host: adserver.adtechus.com
    User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-GB; rv:1.9.2.13) Gecko/20101203 Firefox/3.6.13

    document.write("\n");
    document.write("<scr"+"ipt language='javascript'>\n");
    document.write("var rnd = Math.round(Math.random()*10000000);\n");
    document.write("document.write('<IFR' + 'AME FRAMEBORDER=0 MARGINWIDTH=0 MARGINHEIGHT=0 SCROLLING=NO WIDTH=728 HEIGHT=90 SRC=http://delb.opt.fimserve.com/adopt/?r=h&l=38a6b579-a36c-4c2f-a05b-66939c8ee57f&sz=728x90&rnd=' + rnd + '></IFR' + 'AME>');\n");
    document.write("</scr"+"ipt>\n");
    document.write("\n");
    4) And now the uber important bit. So the line you're looking at is the request to get the advert. In the left hand window, a line or two down, will now be a response from some 3rd party host (ie: not forum.homepageofthedead.com or adserver.adtechus.com) with the code that actually results in the redirection. This is what we're after! Click on the line(s) and post here the "raw" text from those two right hand windows. Here's an example from an innocent advert (from host delb.opt.fimserve.com):-
    Code:
    GET http://delb.opt.fimserve.com/adopt/?r=h&l=38a6b579-a36c-4c2f-a05b-66939c8ee57f&sz=728x90&rnd=9398942 HTTP/1.1

    ps: Remember you must be already running Fiddler to get the information we need!

    Thanks for the report!

    Please do and try and run Fiddler! Those logs will be very VERY helpful

    ^^ You weren't running fiddler I assume?

    Can't emphase how much it would help if someone was just running Fiddler2 when they got a malware redirection. Once it happened, a couple of clicks would then export the logs that could really move this problem forwards!

    ---------- Post added 01-Jan-2011 at 08:17 PM ---------- Previous post was 30-Dec-2010 at 10:27 AM ----------

    Well, judging by reports... It definately seems to be slowing down?

    But again guys, please do run Fiddler2 for me... The moment you get a redirection you're just 3-4 clicks away from exporting your logs and giving me some super valuable info!

    ---------- Post added 04-Jan-2011 at 02:03 PM ---------- Previous post was 01-Jan-2011 at 08:17 PM ----------

    So guys, reports seems to be dropping off!? No one's simply getting them and ignoring them I hope?

    This is a wee bit necro but my last two attempts to view the website resulted in a 'web attack: malicious download request 10' warning from my AV software (norton). Don't know if it's anything to do with the problems I've been having trying to access this site for the last week or so, but I thought I should let you guys know in case there's something sinister afoot. I should point out that it's not trying to redirect me anywhere, just to avoid confusion with the rest of the thread.

    Had an occurrence identical to what has been posted here three days ago, yesterday, and upon my return today. I did screen grab but since forgot to post in paint and now is lost. Will screen grab next time it happens.

    Sorry that I don't have any real information so that you can find it, but I've recently had HPotD go into one of those false "your computer has a virus" pop ups that blanks out the screen and attempts to appear as virus protection. The only way to get out of it is to close the browser. It's happened to me twice in two different locations.

    Like I said....sorry I can't give you anymore information on it, but thought I would pass it along.

    I never had a chance to see any of the advertisements. It happened immediately after clicking on "new posts"
