Ok, so I live in China and I have a horrible ISP. They are somehow redirecting sites to this advert telling me to download their super happy wonderful fast "connection software".
I have done a full virus/spyware scan, which turned up nothing. I have blocked their website on the windows hosts file. I have blocked them from adding cookies on firefox. I use script blocker on firefox for pretty much every website. But it still happens. It seems to be random websites. And not the same sites as yesterday.
And on the websites that are redirected, when I click on the script blocker icon "vnet.cn" is listed as a blocked script!
The websites that are loading, and show up in the advert are..http://welcome.js.vnet.cn/solicitude.html
although in the browser URL area, only the website I was trying to go to shows up...
But if I use the tor network, they dont come up. So I am assuming that the ISP has some kind of software on their end that randomly, and sometimes it nearly everyweb site, hijacks the net and directs it to their bleepty advert.
I would simply use tor all the time except for the fact that it is slow as hell.
And I would switch ISP's if there was another one in this city. THere isnt.
So I think it has something to do with ports or something.
I hope someone can help me as it is driving me crazy!
BTW, feel free to spam and or sign those websites up for free porn and whatnot.
Thanks in advance!!!!!!!!!
