Question: Browser Redirection (Chrome, Safari)

Hi,


So after many research and try, I can't find a solution to that one: there is a malware (adware, virus, trojan, etc...) that is redirecting some pages when I'm browsing in Google Chrome or in Safari. For example, in Chrome, when I try to go to Toyrus.ca, I'm redirected toward that page "http://jljxm.kitchenstop.win/lp/fb8b2497/?n=133820624". Yesterday I was redirected toward Amazon via a "Pureleads" link. On Safari, if I try Insighly.com I'm redirected toward that "https://rep.mysuperappbox.com/offer.html?tp=iw&cid=7062&v=52&gnum=6&clickid=0025 1317p060193941919&cachecode=7LUCNApDMnRHyNbw9-JxZg&q=toyrus&dkw=toyrus.ca&vn=1&e xtid=cdbcbpkdfgfcemelleckgidcpajggamj&yid=28pr&extname=Safe%20Search%20Plus&tid= 149&vc=23&gr=10&c=00251317p060193941919".


So I tried Malwarebyte, my own security suite with Bitdefender, I removed all extension, I checked all installed applications... And nothing works and I can't find anything on my HDD that can explain that problem.

The thing is that redirection problem started on my Windows 7 computer on Chrome and Firefox. So I have the impression it's spreading via sync of accounts or something like that.


And no, I didn't install anything sketchy recently, the only thing that I can think of is an update of Adblock Plus.


Does anyone as the same problem and know how to fix it?

Thanks for your time.

Hi Dominic23,


Thanks for the reply.

However I will skip that because I found the problem/solution: the Chrome extension Adblock from getadblock.com is contaminated with something. I remove the extension and clear all my browsing data from inside Chrome and Safari and then used CCleaner to remove all the rest (everything: pwd, forms...). Then I restart Chrome, and there is no more redirection.

I have done the same thing on my Windows 7 PC and it worked too. If you are like me on multiple platforms you need to do it everywhere otherwise it keeps sync/cross contaminating.


Just out of curiosity: what in the EtreCheck report would have been useful in my case?
