I get redirected to adfly when I try to go onto my profile. Do I have a virus? [SOLVED]

Post by SimLover93 on Wed 08 Aug 2018, 14:03

When I try to click on my "Welcome username" or my notifications in the top right corner I get instantly redirected to a a blue page with a bee on it ad.fly and it says "sorry request page not found!" and the url is "http://clearload.bid/rweasy/-57833HZAG/14536629/_e?rndad=2606a000f100360074fdc0a49416923-1533728779"  and if I push the go back option it sends me somewhere else. Plus I get popups now informing me I have a virus and to call a number which I exit out of but its really annoying and worrying me.  Is it a virus? because no antivirus or notices anything. And I only downloaded things from this site which brings me to adfly and I just read an article that said that adfly is an adware and will cause damage to our computers... I'm very worried and I dont know what to do.

oh oops.. I'm sorry. I CAN log in... but I cant access my profile or notifications.   I'm sorry I didn't follow that rule I wasn't sure where to post it.

I'm also having problems. I can't get into my notifications on the home page either. For the last two or three days every time I click on notifications at the top right corner I get redirected to an Adfly page that says the page could not be found. I am logged on. I can see my notifications through the link that is sent to my email.

My apologies on behalf of the team for the nuisance,

This is caused by a Javascript that ~Ann~ is using for monetization of the Forum, and no, of course the ad-fly is not supposed to show up when clicking on the profile and "Notifications" in the top right corner of the Forum.

Until we know what's going on and we can fix it, I've added some CSS tweaks that make these buttons un-clickable (the property pointer-events: none in CSS). Should be good enough for a temporary fix.

If you want to access your profiles (and notifications) you can still do so by using the button on the other toolbar here:

We have (temporarily?) disabled the old Javascript, so everything is working again normally! Later down the road we will consider using a different Javascript though - that will hopefully work better...

We did not disable it yet, but we are looking at another option.

The issue seems resolved! We are using a different Javascript now, which doesn't affect the Notifications/Profile and "Share" buttons at the top.

Have fun! Problem solved, topic closed.
