Is anyone else getting redirected to http://profitis-here.info/ when doing the daily clicks?

It happens on when I click the link from Imutual, whether that is from a bookmark saved on my computer, or direct from the Imutual site. Not every time, and not always the same dailies. If I close the window and try again, the link works correctly. Seems to be just the Momondo and TSM results that are affected.

Anyone else getting this?

Here, there and everywhere I sometimes click on a link and the page does not load. Check and it says "blank" so it will never load. Refresh page and correct page appears.

I just close down the advert page and continue with my daily click and it tracks fine

Yes, same here.

Good to hear it's not just me, or that my PC/interwebs has been hijacked.

But presumably this website is intercepting affiliate clickthroughs in an unauthorised fashion. There's no option to continue to the site you thought you were going to, so I can't imagine this is an approved diversion. The affiliate companies would never get their customers to agree to that.

Whois tells me that the registrant of the domain is called "Carole", has an address in Dhaka and uses a Russian email provider.

I ran a full scan yesterday with Malwarebytes and it didn't pick up anything bad, but I do wonder whether the unwanted page is delivering an unwanted payload.

A little bit of searching suggests that it's a virus. Most of what it does is generate/enable all sorts of other pop-ups/adverts etc, trying to get you to load all sorts of other crap.

At times, it will also hog all of the computer resources causing other stuff to grind to a halt.

Full scan with Windows Defender currently in progress.

Google concurs.

Of course, every dodgy malware removal tool provider is using it as an excuse to pimp their wares, and I don't like using tools I've not heard of in case they have unexpected and undesired additional payloads.

This page suggests using Malwarebytes, who I do trust.
