How to get rid of http redirects to suspicious sites
« on: November 03, 2018, 05:52:40 AM »
Hi, whenever i click the link in ccleaner, for eg download, imgburn, download , and speedtest ookla site when pres using GO button, i am redirected to naganoadigei.com  :angry:to ultimate fake flipkart site, to login, or install java in fake java site,or flash player in fake adobe sites.
first of all, i want to know, whether the redirects are allowed by the site owners of these sites using their own programs to redirect to those sites or
is it because of third rogue party doing something in these genuine sites or
is it because of the Isp allowing those things voluntarily. pl let me know and also give me solution to completely get rid of this .
sometimes, it goes to the site one time or sometimes two times and the third click ultimately goes to the correct page of download or seeing the speed results.
may i have your views on this and solutions
The Bottom line is "Check your hardware first if it supports the task you try".

I would run a scan with the free version of MBAM and follow up that with a scan by AdwCleaner as you could have picked up a Google redirect.

You auto get the 14 day premium trial which can be ended by clicking on Settings/Account Details and disable it.

Add HitManPro to that list (there's a trial period, uninstall it after use) and ensure you reset all browsers to their defaults. If you still have problems, reset your router and go back through the combined list.

Generic redirect howto and browser resetting here.

J, it sounds like BSNL injecting ads on http connections again, as an ISP they have a long history of doing this and continue to do so.

Is this you posting in this thread, rajujayaraman? seems to be going nowhere in terms of a satisfactory response from BSNL.

So there'll be no fix other than changing ISPs ?

Pretty much what friends in India have told me, yes.

HTTPS Everywhere https://www.eff.org/https-everywhere may help and or a hosts file/ adblocker to block the redirect locations.

Hi, samson i  i have escalated this to the top lutof the bsnl. they will certainly look at it.
But i also had doubt above rogue players in the middle .
as a temp solution i have installed google chrome with add on skip redirect and alo remove redirect everywhere. that  temporarily fixed the  matter.
Instead of adblocker, i use these two add ons . I sincerely feel it is kind of http hijacking with some scripts. Nowadays firefox is lacking something secure browsing.
