Was clean sailing between Oct 24 and now. Hope you can fix it again.

This happens to me fairly regularly playing on Vivaldi browser/Windows 7 Pro. How I handle it:

- copy the address (URL) I've been redirected to
- go to Wordpad/Notepad, right-click and select Run as Administrator
- open C:WindowsSystem32driversetchosts
- at the end of this text file, add the text in quotes: "127.0.0.1 " followed by the offending URL
- save the hosts file

The next time I'm redirected to that URL my "hosts" file refers the request back to my own laptop and instead of the malicious site I see an error message, after which I can usually use the back button to get back to the game. A similar (but not identical - do some research first, your mileage may vary) procedure would probably work for other setups.

Here's my current list of redirected sites, not all from videopoker.com:

127.0.0.1 www.reimageplus.com
127.0.0.1 start.SweetPacks.com
127.0.0.1 re.directrev.com
127.0.0.1 download.driversupport.com
127.0.0.1 www.myprivacyswitch.com
127.0.0.1 fun-loaded.holiday-gadget-gift.site
127.0.0.1 www.mellowsurvey.com
127.0.0.1 http://click-me-net.pw

I get several as well between hands, forcing me to close and reopen. Very frustrating!

Malicious redirecting ads are back. Happens in both Safari & Firefox. Here's a sample link:http://morefastermac.tech/landings/197/ ... d_ext=4905
