pixel.adsafeprotected.com redirect bug?

3 posts in this topic

Hello everyone, I have been having some strange redirecting type of issues as of late...

I go to this website often called worldstarhiphop.com its a video website and you can click on various music videos and whatnot they also have a comments section below each video...

I accidentally clicked on a link left on a comment and ever since then i was unable to watch videos on their website..If i click on a video it would take me to it..then after like 2 seconds my browser

window will get redirected to a blank page..at the bottom of the browser the url says:

pixel.adsafeprotected.com

I dont know what this is, and i just want to get rid of it...any help would be great ..thanks

maybe spyware of some kind...but i did a malwarebytes scan and here is my log:

Hello and welcome to Malwarebytes

If you think you are infected, here are the steps needed to get your computer cleaned....

Please read the following so that you can begin the cleaning process:

IMPORTANT: Don't use any temporary file cleaners unless requested - this can cause data loss and make recovery difficult

You have 3 Options that you can choose from as listed below:

  • Option 1 —— Free Expert advice in the Malware Removal Forum
  • Option 2 —— Paying customer -- Contact Support via email
  • Option 3 —— Premium, Fee-Based Support

OPTION 1

As we don't deal with malware removal in the General Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware Forum, you need to start a topic in the

Malware Removal forum so a qualified helper can help you fix any malware related problems/infections you may have.

  • Please read and follow the directions >>Right HERE<<, skipping any steps you are unable to complete.
  • After posting your new post, make sure under options, you select Track this topic and choose Immediate Email Notification,
    so that you're alerted when someone has replied to your post.

NOTE: Please do not post back to (bump) your topic within the first 48 hours.

Replying to your own posts changes the post count and helpers are looking for topics with zero replies.

If you reply to your own post helpers may think that you're already being helped and thus overlook your post.

  • If there is no reply from any experts after 48 hours, you can reply to the topic, asking for help again.
    Or
  • You may send a Private Message to a Moderator asking for assistance.

OPTION 2

Alternatively, as a paying customer, you can contact the help desk by filling out the form located >>Right HERE<<

OPTION 3

If you would like to use our Malwarebytes Premium Services, Comprehensive solutions to all your computer support needs—from installation and set-up to troubleshooting and tune-ups go to our Malwarebytes Premium Services support site --> >>Right HERE<<

Please be patient, someone will assist you as soon as possible.

PS: Please use the "Reply to this topic" oeXUf.png button not the Reply button when you start replying.

I know it has been over 7 months since this posting, but I was researching an issue with the website aarp.org today when the no-script plugin for Firefox flagged a script requesting access to my browser from "adsafeprotected.com". Has anyone determined whether adsafeprotected.com is a trusted process or not?
