Awh so this is what's displaying all those ads everywhere I go?
This is why I use adblocker. :)
Was anything in Wowhead Client?
okay stupid wowhead people, I reported this a YEAR AGO. when I got adware on my computer FROM YOUER WEBSITE. I had to reinstall windows and severely reduce my wowhead uptime. I used to leave wowhead open 24hrs a day so I always had the answer to my question at my finger tips. but after the adware I only come here if I REALLY need to, and I leave ASAP. I think I even made a post in the forum about adware and was rebuffed, like the parent of a brat denying their kid would ever do any wrong or be rude. WELL EAT IT WOWHEAD EAT IT!I feel better, brb gonna go lay down and bask in my rightness and smugly waggle my finger at you.
The Wowhead client is unaffected.
found more than 4 viruses on my computer recently, thanks to my virus remover. this explains where they came from.
I use malwarebytes premium but it got passed it :( reinstalled whole windows Could not get it removed2bad i dont have a creditcard else i would have paid for wowhead so i dont get any ads at allbut i'm glad you guys found and removed it thumbs up
Yay WoWhead is back. :D
I'm fond of ADWCleaner myself. Seems to work really well at killing Malware and browser modifications.https://toolslib.net/downloads/viewdownload/1-adwcleaner/
I assume Premium users (or those using adblockers) were not affected? Avast notified me about some Firefox addon and only displayed an application ID, no name. I let Avast deactivate it, but could find no corresponding change in the addons menu, or while manually searching the files in my FF profile.
No ads whit Premium :)
And they still asking us to whitelist ad`s here... No. Way.
I feel sorry for all these people boasting about using adblocker, you realize the content you see on this site mainly gets paid through advertising revenue right? So the less ads are being viewed, the more chances the site will fail in the long run. I can't tell you not to use adblocker, I understand how some sites are just like wtf ads all up in your face, but at least whitelist the sites or streamers or youtubers you watch / visit on a daily basis. Just ignorant people I swear haha.
thanks for the heads up that is respectable
Adblock and premium user :) This is not the only site affected. Also in android i see a lot of sites that when you enter to a page the adds will redirect to another automaitcally without asking them and try to install an APK. Thanks that they've realised of this malware.
i am glad I am blocking all the adds:), this proves I do the right thing:).
