Solved Redirection spam hack Viglink

Post by Dimitri Spanoa on August 18th 2016, 3:28 am

Content Removed ~ Nemo Redirection and Viglink

Hello,

My page has been the victim of a spam redirection hack..someone has placed coding on the main page(s) which when my traffic routes into the forum they are redirected to the sites that someone has chosen for them to view.

Also, a program called Viglink has created hyperlinks to products within my forum posts which they are wanting folks to purchase..If they click and purchase one of the items..

One of my computers have picked up that this redirection hack is injecting viruses
into visitors computers..I would like to discuss further on how to remove these unwanted problems.


Thanks,

Not sure where Text ad links is.

Activate Ads: is set at members and guests
Text ads activation for guests (underlined): set at yes
There is no site name or description. Those are highlighted in red in the entry field.

First issue: yes, it's similar to the link that you sent as an example.

Thanks,

The issue with the viglinks is solved..I closed down guest activation for ads..
