I keep getting redirects to a blocked malicious site? ON NORTON??

I keep getting this redirect at random!! EVEN RIGHT NOW WHEN I'M TYPING THIS!!! I'm scared!!

I'm glad auto-save exists, or this post would have never been made

What is this site supposed to be and is it actually dangerous?

Even when I'm on a secure site like Norton of all things, it still sends me this redirect that is blocked by Norton. Does anyone else have this problem?

So, it's a fake scan page that's behind it? That's weird because the screenshot of the site doesn't look like the typical scam site. Aren't they more bright colored and have big letters that stand out? They also have popups that can't be clicked out of.

The ones I've seen usually lock my browser and make a weird alarm noise while someone talks about Microsoft tech support and to call that number. It really scared me the first time it happened

Malaware bytes does not detect any threat either.

Re: I keep getting redirects to a blocked malicious site? ON NORTON??

These redirects are usually malformed ads on a site you are visiting. The site owner does not necessarily know anything about these redirects because they often just use an ad service that provides the ads. The ad service cycles ads to their customers so a site may not show this redirect one day, and it will the next.

You can install an ad blocker extension in your browser to help stop these redirects.

Are you using a BSNL connection? I have a BSNL connection and I'm facing the same issue for a couple of days. 

I found this post in Google where people with BSNL connection said they were getting directed to a malicious site. 

I made this account just so I can reply to your post, because it's the only in the whole internet talking about this issue.

The best option here would be to use a popup blocker. I'm using one too.

Poper Blocker didn't work for me.

I've now installed strict popup blocker for chrome. Will check it out for a while and see if it resolves the issue.

Thank you, @Argentum for your suggestion.

You can manually block a popup from a specific site in Chrome. Read this

Hope this helps!

Re: I keep getting redirects to a blocked malicious site? ON NORTON??

Pop-ups and redirects setting in chrome is already set to "Blocked". These malicious redirects were happening despite this setting. Now, after installing strict popup blocker extension for chrome, it shows me an alert before such a redirection and I am able to prevent the malicious sites from opening spontaneously in a new tab.

Thank you @Argentum for this solution.

Re: I keep getting redirects to a blocked malicious site? ON NORTON??

Then what exactly is the screenshot of techysupport supposed to be? It just says "Geeks Idea" and has tabs like "about us" and "support". It looks like a genuine business that is quiet and professional. It looks NOTHING like a "fake tech support" domain, which looks like this: 

That type of website is usually noisy and locks your browser. It's full of flashy bright colors and hard to click out of. I don't think there is any quiet professional page behind it

Hi Meeker67,

There are literally hundreds of different types of online fake tech support sites. They don't all have bells and whistles.  Some try impersonating other legitimate company's such as Norton.  Some are even quasi legitimate but use misleading tactics to trick you into purchasing support services for hundreds of dollars.  In my opinion, based on the reports bjm posted, I'd say they probably fall into the latter.  They claim to provide support for virtually every A/V and OS on the market.  However, once you give someone remote access to your computer you never know what they might disable and install in background.     

Also, did you ever download and run Malwarebytes as recommend by bjm?  Have you check your browser extensions/add-ons to see if there are any you don't recognize?

Then why would it show a "Web Attack: Fake Tech Support Domain" alert if it's not that kind of site at all? When i search that on Google Images, it only shows screenshots of the noisy ones. Is the quiet page hidden behind the more noisy, flashy one?

Re: I keep getting redirects to a blocked malicious site? ON NORTON??

Hi Meeker67,

Please note, techysupport's web site has been flagged and classified as being a Phishing/Malicious site by some of the top online security sites to include Norton Safe Web.  Something is obviously trying to redirected your browser to this site and it shouldn't be doing this.  Luckily Norton Safe Web has prevented your PC from connecting to this site. 

At this point the only thing that remains in question is what is causing the redirects of your browser and how to stop it.

You can either try and identify what is causing these redirects as bjm recommended or you can turn to one of the free Malware Removal sites that can work one on one with you to help resolve it. See this Link

Beyond this, we cant tell you anything more about techysupport and or why it looks the way it does compared to Google images, other than maybe they are a low key site, trying to look legitimate, and rely on embedded software to redirect people to their site.  Just my 2 cents...

I know it's fraudulent, but it's not a virus or browser locking page at all. It doesn't download malware on your computer or mess up the hard drive. Or does it..? Is the site normal, or is it dodgy?

Re: I keep getting redirects to a blocked malicious site? ON NORTON??

My take is still that Norton is flagging this site because of the way you are redirected to it from another web page. The site itself may be clean, but Norton takes exception because these redirects to support sites are often/usually scams.

Have you tried just deliberately going to that site to see if you are still warned?
