I got another malware redirect from myLot, this has to stop.
November 19, 2017 9:30am CST
A ransomware again (I already got one last month). Alright, it happens only about once a month on a laptop, but it is killing this community. I have never complained about myLot, but we have to stop this. This time it made me angry, and I have decided to identify the responsible. I have now parameterized a paranoid firewall for myLot for this hunt : everything coming from myLot has to be authorized. Soon or later I will know who is the guilty advertiser. It can take a month more, but I am very very patient. When I will find it, I will tell you what IP to block to enjoy fully this site.

Another one joins the battle! I identified www3. MyLot. Com as one site to add to your block list. You can see the sequence of pages opened in this screenshot of my history, reading from the bottom of the shot upwards to the top. I have switched to Ghostery browser on my phone, no pop-ups so far.

@topffer It was not them no it was another one I was in and I knew it was them all the time so I dropped them. I miss Easyhits4u as I made a bit of cash every now and then. Very sad story about all that now.

When I heard people complaining about malware I thought it must be targeting US users only. But this is the first time that I see a complaint from a member outside US. I’m glad it didn’t get to my device but I do hope that it will be solved soon.

@topffer Yes, I did read a few members jumped ship because of all the malware and redirects coming from this site. I have never had an issue like this before ao far so good. But if I do, I'll do as you are doing on my comptuer. Onl6y way to trap them and find out who is behind t his mess.
