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
Follow the directions already offered here:

Thank you for the last post @ reply #14:  https://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=222348.msg1479708#msg1479708

I'd like to point out you seem not to be using an adblocker add-on in whatever browser you screen-captured in your last reply. 

I suggest using uBlock Origin as a starting point.  Might help.

Hi, adblock origin isa add on and i do not think that solution lies there.
What i want is why avast could not capture those redirects in a website.
avast ofcourse blocks suspicious sites when you click with the prompt alert and scan.
But when you go to a website, without this alert, and then click the link in website, then it redirects to naganoadigei.com
and then to suspicious sites.
Do any body knows,that this naganoadigei.com, what this is doing in browsers in redirecting.
could not avast team spend something on this site reputation and then do the need ful .
Is there any settings in http redirect blocking ( id onot mean http block, if it is then i do not think you could browse http sites at all)
 in avast antivirus
i do hope asyn and other staff investigate this naganoadigei com .

Hi, Thanks for information. But i am sure that while i clicked, it first popups naganoadigei.com to quickely redirected to suspicious websites like flipkart, java install , and flash player install sites.
So onlyl i asked the staff to investigate this behaviour.
Asyn, thanks for lilnks, but the problem is in the internal link, in a website.
Some says to go to internet options to check ssl certificates of 2.0 and 3.0. What would be this in effect, if i am haing firefox browser. What those options in the security in i.e.
My concern is , when avast disables loading of some suspicious websites, by  its action, why it could not go deep in to the website link also.
if a site is good but if it is not secure, the links like java script and unknown programs may lead the users to download and install , the suspicious link without him knowing that it is a suspected link.
Known users would just click the x mark to close .
I wish avast team to look in to this new kind of attack or redirects, so that it gets more downloads.
I do not doubt that avast is doing magnificently, but this kind of redirects , particularly of http site.
I just enabled some add ons, and then i could not browse the link at all.. I hope that moderator of this forum would send this matter to staff dealing with this with his notes so that a solution emerge from avast.
Asyn links shows as if naganoadigei.com is a good site.
But why this site is first popping to redirect the browser in a fraction of a second to other sites.

You're welcome. I'd suggest you follow mchain's advice and install a decent ad-blocker.

Thanks, Asyn.

The reason I recommend installing an adblocker is, in your case, the redirects may/should stop once you install.  Your worries and frustration should end once this is done.   :)

Plus, you'll notice browser pages load faster when you have an adblocker installed.
