Sketchy pop-up trying to load.

Postby Bistro Math Prof on Sun Apr 29, 2018 8:37 pm

Logged on today, and Indys index.php page is trying to open a pop-up window to http://exn98.voluumtrk.com/289694e1-9dca-46f0-8caa-612706941758

My pop-up blocker is stopping it. Anyone else seeing this?

voluumtrk is a well-known spam/adware company that often injects ads on porn sites etc, that install aggressive adware on your computer/browser if you click on the ad. I have not been hacked, I do this for a living, and I can clearly see the pop-up code and link in the Indys source code. In other words, it's not coming from me, but from you.

If this is on purpose, please consider a better revenue model.

If this is not on purpose, you might want to check for intrusions on the Indys server.

It is also possible that a bad actor between the two of us (your ISP, my ISP) is injecting the link. Going to TLS encryption would solve that issue.

I would assume it is an advertising pop up and the site likely knows as it's been here for days. Pretty sure they do this for a living too :lol:

Perhaps a better revenue model wouldn't be necessary if more would do things such as support this wonderful site that provides a platform for our right to bitch at them for doing it wrong, yeah? :roll:

I find the pop-up off-putting as well. Have it blocked so it blocks the ad on every single page load with a notification each time, which is annoying asf.

I've never seen the damn thing. Must be something that the torbrowser (which is really just pimped firefox) will smash without a word.

The advertisement was the same one that was on eccie. Don't click on it if you don't wish to use their services. The old administration had a different approach to their revenue model. There is nothing malicious about the link generated through the popup as of this date but we will keep checking on it to verify that doesn't change.

Okay, so I get the site needs to make some revenue. And I'd turn off the pop-up and ad blocker except that this particular ad network has a history of sneakily installing adware so those pop-ups start showing up on other sites.

http://lmgtfy.com/?q=voluumtrk

As far as who does what for a living, just pointing out that I have some minor clue (and not that the site runners don't) so they wouldn't just assume I was hacked if this was an issue. But I've also worked on operations far vaster than Indy's, with people 5x smarter than me, and still have seen, well, really, really bad whoopsies. If you see something, say something. Especially since we have new mgmt.

Anyhow, only trying to help, and I'm mostly retired anyway, so I'll go away and shut up now.

(Also, my tone sounded angrier than I really was—sorry).

I see it on iPad as well, so now I’m blocking all pop-Ups to stop it. It was try to pop-up on almost every page on the site. Since I’m now blocking the whole thing, I don’t understand the revenue benefit. Except that that I would be willing to pay to get rid of it if I couldn’t block it.
