Is anyone else having a problem with this fake "java update" malware crap that's been going on for the last few weeks or so ?
I've noticed this bloody thing popping up everywhere while surfing the internet, but now I've got it redirecting my browser when I try to log into
ATS (it hasn't done it yet on other sites thus far, but I'm sure it will eventually)... and it's driving me nuts.
I managed to bounce around it on this site by reclicking "log in" several times quickly until I was able to beat it (only have a few seconds before
the redirect kicks in) and finally logged on. Once I'm logged in, no popup or redirect problem.
I've run full scans of my computer with AVG anti-virus, Spybot S & D, and Malwarebytes... cleaned any garbage up, deleted all browser
history/cookies/cache, and also checked for any malware program installs, mozilla malware add-ons/extensions, etc. It all seems good. And everything
is up to date on my computer also.
But still can't seem to combat this damn thing.
Thankfully I haven't made the mistake of ever clicking on it, but while surfing other sites the stupid popup opens a new tab and you either can't
close it without completely shutting down the browser and/or AVG detecting it and getting rid of it (sometimes it does, sometimes it doesn't).
So at this point, I'm at a complete loss on what else to do ?
Here's what the malware browser popup/redirect looks like:
Figured I would toss this at you fine folks and hope that someone has other suggestions for me to try...
Bloody frustrating !
