Weird redirect after clicking a link
« on: January 12, 2019, 02:29:57 PM »
I clicked a link to stopdropgaming[dot]com, but the link redirected me to iyfnzgb[dot]com and it displayed a big broken page icon (sad face and folded corner).

I looked up what the website was and have found some people saying that it is generally malicious. I did a malwarebytes threat scan and a quick scan with avast and it didnt get any detections. I have deleted my cache and cookies, but in my panic i also deleted my google download history. I dont have any weird new extensions in my browser.

I would like to know whether I am safe and if there is anything else i could or should do.

https://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=216034.0 i found this topic of someone who had a similar situation
I hope im posting this in the right place, but sorry i should have posted this somewhere else.

You may run Malwarebytes Adwcleaner to remove browser crap (not same as antimalware) >>  https://www.malwarebytes.com/adwcleaner/



If you want a check, attach the two diagnostic logs from step #2 here (FRST)  >>  https://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=194892.0

Hi Cien and Pondus,

The site is now a parking site and according to these results open to abuse:

Parklogic iFrame detected. -http://plp.parklogic.com lowest in rank and poorly socialized bad site.
