Hey guys,

Have you ran any malware checks on your computers?
If you see any more redirects or pop up ads please provide us with the URL of the ad so we can have it removed.

Yep I'm running Malwarebytes and Mcafee Live Safe, usually one of them blocks it before it redirects the page, I just looked in the log files nothing there.

Computer Science student here....


These are caused by the bad advertising domains....

THEY ARE NOT VIRUSES UNlESS YOU ARE SMART ENOUGH TO INSTALL THEM

The ads hijack the URL and redirect to their own web page....


I dont know who VMF uses for the ads but i think they need to switch... i keep having this issue on my android with chrome.... the only way i can use the site is on firefox for android with adblock plus installed.... (Google is supposedly cracking down on these advertisers)


If you are using a desktop browser and have this issue often get adblock plus/ ublock origin.... atleast until this issue gets resolved...

If you see these please get the URL it redirected you to as well as a screen grab of the ad. I need to get this to our add traffic people to sort out the root of these bad ads.
