Hi, when i visit and click on speed test ookla supposed to be a global speed test portal , https secured one, i am redirected to suspicious websites.
I do receive alerts of avast , of saving me from possible website attack in the browsed url. But when i click the famous site, nothing and avast allows . But clicking any button redirects to some other sites, unknown sites, alerting you about install java or other popular programs.
Why avast web shield does not protect me from visiting this site.
i could manually avoid. But when avast alerts other sites why not this suspcious sites.

Hi, Pondus, thanks for the reply.
When i check , by input the  said site, everything is green,
But , when i click it redirects, what would be the issue.
Is it with my service provider dns issue
or others.
when i clicked the links in the site, it certainly redirected to a site to install adobe flash player. I have the latest flash player.
some times to a site, which has no relevance at all
avast smart scan did not find any issues

Can you give an example of a link you clicked on (and where it redirected to)?  I'm not having any issues with the site.

That would certainly be a good starting point.

I normally use speedtest.net directly, which as far as I can tell still uses Ookla and like alanb I'm not having any problem at Ookla.com.

If I connect Ookla.com and use the 'Explore Speedtest Applications,' Consumer and then Speedtest.net I can run the test without issue.

Hi, Pondus,
Today, when i click the same speedtest net site, i was redirected to naganoadigei.com, which is having its ip place in netherlands, redirecting further to flipkart website. I think that it is also a fake site.
avast popup alert when the initial site is captured by it as having suspicious characters?
But what about, on clilcking the website, http, if click any link on the opend websites?I think, avast can do wonders in catchng these web redirects also, while it gives alert popup and disables the site.
Here avast give green marks for the site, but clicking the link redirects to suspicious sites.
hope some one give solution to this
