The malicious redirect is back, and it's worse than ever. In 75 hands of Keno contest, I have been interrupted by it at least 5 times.

FYI I've been getting redirects again while playing the monthly the past few days. It's a big pain because it kicks me out of the game so I have to start over and watch the video again.

It's not the fake flash update this time, though. The one today redirected to the following sites:
gabads.global.ssl.fastly.net
3xtraord1nary.com
selitutes-touning.com
redirect.selitutes-touning.com
server3.cr3at1ons.com

This then brought up a fake "Windows Spyware Warning" spam message.

Thanks for any help.

WhitneyReed,
I've switched you to a different ad network. Please let me know if you continue to get those bad ads.

Thanks, but unfortunately it happened again almost immediately when playing the monthly (probably the first ad change.) This time McAfee caught it and didn't allow it to load, but it did kick me out of the round then. The site it was trying to load was a page at https://engine.spotscenered.info   

I just cleared my cache again (I'm running Chrome). I'm wondering if others are getting this too...

Lovely. That likely means it's being hidden in ads on multiple ad networks, unless it's being served by some sort of toolbar on your system.

Thanks for letting me know, we'll see if we can squash this.

I got it once the other day, but can't remember at what point or where I was in the website. Most likely it was when the home page came up or when I was on the forum.

I again - after a couple of months of it being at least workable - get through a "Daily Game" without them overtaking and freezing my computer. I even switched computers and OS. The "Adopt" ad is the worse!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

For the "Technical Record":
- Of all of the computers that I use to play, even my slowest Computer is rated at 3.00 GHz. with at least a dual core Central Processing Unit (CPU).
- they run either Windows 10 Pro, Windows 7 Pro or a Linux Operating System.
- I do not use "ad blocking".
- My internet set-up is 100 Mbps Comcast (high speed) Performance.

That seems to me to be reasonable equipment.

Advise..
