Browser redirects without any signs of malware

Recommended Posts

It seems like a friend of mine just caught a malware but unluckily I'm not able to help him out, I run out of ideas.

When he visits common porn sites he gets redirected to www.bobo.com or www.bobo.com/615438?m=yw553&login=1 in ~95% of all cases, by using Google Chrome on MacOS (redirect also happens when using Firefox & Safari). Resetting MacOS didn't help.
Two other computers in the household (one Mac, one Windows) show the same behavior, the only connection between all these devices is Wifi, all computers started this behavior at the same time.
The redirect still happens when using tethering from phone instead of Wifi from the router, however the redirect doesn't happen on his phone (using Wifi).
All malware detection tools I tried didn't show any results; neither on Mac nor on Windows (Kaspersky TDSSKiller, RKill, Malwarebytes, Hitman Pro, Zemana AntiMalrware, AdwCleaner).
No add-ons or extensions could be found in Google Chrome.
I was not able to reproduce the redirect on my PC or phone.

I hope someone has an idea what's going on there :) Thanks!
