    Default Getting redirects

    Myself, StevenT and Konifur have all been getting redirected from Jokeroo. The only solution I have found is to turn on adblocker.

    Jokeroo is vulnerable to this kind of attack as it is an unsecured site (http:// rather than https://) and uses Revcontent ads which are particularly prone to attack.

    Default Has this site been hacked?

    I keep getting files downloaded to my Mac when ever I respond to a post. I send them to the trash right away without opening. Beware!

    you are right about it being in the ads though
    brilor has a thread in society about what is happening to him on his mac
    you may want to move that thread to general support

    I think it may be related to the problems the two Stevens and I have been having: http://board.jokeroo.com/threads/162...ting-redirects

    Do you have an adblocker Bri? If so, try turning it on to see if the downloads stop.

    I've merged the 2 threads ... and I've sent an email to Chris ... but got an immediate (auto) response saying he's out of the office until the 27th
    I may try his new tech guy
    do what you have to do to take care of yourselves and your computers via ad-blockers, I think he's making enough money off spammer clicks ...

    I had the same problem but wasn't here enough to figure out it was from here. However, it seems to be gone again, so I thank you! The longer I have Windows 10, the more I am thinking of just giving up the computer. It seems I can't check things or correct anything that bothers me. I can't even find stuff I KNOW I have. (Did I ever tell you that I HATE change??? lol)
