I also apologize for adding to this thread. I'm having the same problem. Pages being redirected when I visit Yahoo and other websites, as well as the verosmedia.com domain name being used in some redirects. I posted a thread about this at bleeping computer and the volunteer gave my computer a clean bill of health. MalwareBytes, HitmanPro, and avast also say my machine is clean. This leads me to believe that the problem is not actually malware based and is the result of someone abusing ad networks that we happen to be interacting with (at least in my case). This is only my intuition, but it seems to be supported by the fact that the redirect pages include the URL of the webpage that was hijacked. To my untrained eye that seems to be the kind of information someone running a marketing campaign would want recorded to figure out how effective their ad purchasing is. My intuition could be off though and I could be totally wrong. Again I apologize for posting in this thread. I wont post again unless requested to, I just felt the need to say that I'm experiencing the same problems with what seems to be a clean computer. Best regards.
I have the same problem occurring on my desktop in both Chrome and Edge. I just rebuilt my system about 2 weeks ago with a new SSD and windows 10 OS. The problems with my previous HDD may or may not have been related to this problem, but I was experiencing issues with that set-up especially in chrome. When running Chrome I would get high levels of CUP usage. This would cause my system to become unusable at times. Ultimately CHKDSK revealed that there may been disk problems so I went down that path and replaced my OS HDD with a new SSD. I did not restore the system, I rebuilt by loading a new OS and reinstalling some of the apps. That was a little history on my system... Now I am experiencing redirects to grimsurveys,com when I am on the comcast website sitting idle. Lately it is occurring more frequently. Yesterday when I turned on my screen after being on all night there was a warning message indicating my data would be lost, passwords taken and such. The infection was a variant of yahlover.worm malware. I used CCleaner and mallwarebites and nothing was found. I searched various remedies and found that some think its a website attack and nothing on my computer needs to be cleaned. This morning I received a Mallwarebites notification of a block of a malicious web site. I assume it was the yahlover.worm attack again. Mallwarebites hasn't blocked the grimsurvey redirects... In my estimation this is all related. I am interested in finding a solution. If not I will rebuild my system again and to determine if there is still a problem. Is there firmware or something outside of the disk storage system that could be infected and could propagate a problem from the old disk to the new disk?
I'm having exact same problem since today. Not sporadic for me. here is my story: I have a bookmark for watsapp for web. when I click that, it opens as normal. when I type, web.watsapp...., it autofills and when enter is pressed, it redirects to. "http://private.njoyapps.com/wim/lp/lp27/ index_23. php" happens everytime. I did whatever reset is intructed above for browser but did run any programs. Malwarebytes is unable to detect this. My question is: will reinstalling windows solve this? I recently build a new comp and installed windows 10, so I won't loose too much. Also, I know where this most likely came from. I downloaded MagicISO from a third party link and while installing I clicked a couple of 'accepts' where I shouldn't have. It installed webdiscover and chromium which I removed. ran Malwarebytes scan which remove another 30-40 registry entries and what not. but nothing on this. I also used Ninite.com to install some softwares. screenshot attached.
