For every link or website that is down or is dead, I now get redirected to the above site.The site is very deceiving. You can only find some info if you click on privacy or legal details on the bottom of the webpage. 

 

The results when redirected have me search for things including a big ad for malware removal. 

 

I ran McAfee and SuperAntispyware. Both yielded no malware, just the usual cookies from casalmedia etc with SA.

 

Can you please advise how to proceed?

 

Thank you

 

Edit: I just tried the dead links on my iphone. i have also been redirected to the same site.So perhaps this is a router, network. or ISP issue?

One of the links is www.kingsmark.ca.

 

It's been happening regularly all week with different links. I just started tracking it today.

 

I called my ISP after spending a long time on hold. And they too got the same redirect too. So it's a good thing, I am not infected but something is going on with many sites. 

 

Looks like this company who is doing the redirect is becoming quite widespread...at least in Canada. Both my ISP tech support tried it via LTE (data) on our smartphones and we got the same redirect.
