Default Redirect from MTS to malware pages
I've been getting this redirect to malware (Microsoft official page, locking your browser, call this number, etc). Always the chance I'm wrong and it's in my browser or elsewhere, but I'm pretty sure now it's happening when I'm on your pages. I don't know if this will be helpful, but this is what my history showed this time:

Apologies if it isn't you, but it doesn't seem to be happening unless I visit here. Thanks.

Was there any particular advert showing at the time?

I'll try and keep an eye open and see if I can spot it, but it happens so fast, and I don't tend to look at the ads. It's been only about once a day, so it's not prevalent, and I've also been watching to see if it happens when I'm NOT on MTS. So far, nothing either way again since this morning.

I've been having this problem in all areas, from the home page, downloads, just reading stuff. I have two images from AVG but can't get them to post. One says connection is on tech-nk32.stream and it was infected by JS:Agent-EEA[Trj] The 2nd one says code-ny37.stream same info for infected. AVG picked up these 2, it happens so fast and I x out the browser before the rest could show up. I get these everyday lately and sometimes twice. Most often I'm reading, not even touching the mouse. Thanks for looking into this.

Thought I would mention in case it's useful, this only happens on MTS and I don't have other tabs open.

Been a couple of days since I've had any problems, now. Maybe posting here scared it off. As I said, it may not even have been your site, but at one point I had mts pulled up and was playing the sims, and the game slowed down so bad I went out to take a look. There were the fake microsoft alerts, and my history was filled with redirects. But doesn't mean it was your site...still could have been something attached to my browser. Just seemed ot be happening here.

I've had this happen to me three times in the last week. The first time, after my anti-virus gave an alarm, I got a popup wanting me to give my username and password. I X'd that off. Then a page came up from CenturyTel phone company wanting me to do a survey and promising a reward. I did the survey and looked at the rewards. They were for Garcinia Cambogia, a face cream seen on Dr. Oz, which is widely advertised on the internet under various names, and a coupld of others. All free except for S&H. I X'd that out too. Still had a locked browser but was able to close it with Task manager. The other two times I X'd everything that popped up as soon as the alarm went off, without noticing if any company or product was mentioned. The first two times I was browsing in TS2 downloads. Today I was in TS2 WCIF section, in the Chewbacca post and had followed a link given in the post: the first modthesims link. Hope this can help you locate the perpetrator and hope you can prosecute them.

Just checked my history. Says the page was bestdealsintheworldtoday.com

This happens to me all the time, too, on Android. I'll be browsing the downloads section, then boom, malware sites. Usually they direct me to a Facebook looking page saying "CONGRATULATIONS!" or something like that. It's really irritating.

Having issues as well. Doesn't matter if I browse in Safari or Chrome on my MacBook, iPhone, or iPad. I almost always get redirected. It's incredibly annoying.

For me it was the front page, but it just happened again. My AV blocked a redirect attempt to bestdealsintheworldtoday.com, but clicking on the pop-up to copy the IP it was going to be blocking for the next 60 seconds closed it.
