Photobucket Redirecting to scam

Recommended Posts

When I go to Photobucket my browser gets redirect to a scam.

I have Malwarebytes.
Updated and did a full scan many times.
Zero threats detected.

Microsoft Security Essentials.
Updated and did a full scan many times.
Zero threats detected.

This only happens when I go to Photobucket.
it does not matter what Photobucket page it is.

I have tried Malwarebytes, AdwCleaner, Hitman Pro and Zemana AntiMalware and it still is redirecting.

Is this coming from the Photobucket website?

Why is this just happening when I go to the Photobucket website only?

Is there something on my computer that is redirecting the browser?

Any help appreciated,

Hello and :welcome:

 

Please download Farbar Recovery Scan Tool and save it to your desktop.

Note: You need to run the version compatible with your system. If you are not sure which version applies to your system download both of them and try to run them.
Only one of them will run on your system, that will be the right version.

  • Double-click to run it. When the tool opens click Yes to disclaimer.
  • Press Scan button. button.

  • It will make a log (FRST.txt) in the same directory the tool is run. Please attach it to your reply.

  • The first time the tool is run, it makes also another log (Addition.txt). Please attach it to your reply.

TwinHeadedEagle,

I downloaded FRST.
After clicking the scan button, FRST was scanning, then was not responding for about 5 seconds, then started scanning again. 
Attached is the FRST.txt log and Addition.txt log.

Thanks,

TwinHeadedEagle,

This must be coming from the Photobucket website.
Is there away to test a website to see if is infected?

This does happen using Firefox and Google Chrome browsers. 
I have not tested to see if it happens using Internet Explorer browser.

It redirects once, then I click the back button to go back to photobucket, then it stops redirecting.
If I clear the cache it will redirect again.

Can you recommend a Adblock extension ?

TwinHeadedEagle,

It it appears that by flushing/clearing the DNS cache fixed this Photobucket redirect tech scam problem.
I have been viewing Photobucket pages after clearing the DNS cache for the last 4 days and I have not had my browsers redirect to a scam.

I have not installed Adblock plus yet.

Thanks for Help,
