I've been working on Binary puzzles. I keep having them interrupted by sudden redirects to pages trying to get me to download their malware.

Hi
I am afraid that your browser is infected. However we need to investigate it. 
Please send me the URL where are you redirected and also the printscreen of puzzle before to rasto@griddlers.net .

I have the same problem since a couple of days.
The problem is only in griddlers.net, not in other sites.

Hi, same problem here :-(
Automatically redirected to : http://click.server-stats23.com/srv/logic
then a page called "Java Runtime Environment" at this adress :
http://alwaysup.cool-check247.top/vewvw?aveav=re7tfbQDmo60iyGFPMdwERjX4VVqmWLTJ7huzbiU-rs.&cid=P23P7R4579936282025037676&offerid=3408&v_id=uq8KgJGxqo7cnE7PEdjo0jpZYJri4eDLCRzgyST5lGk.

Note that it happened on two different computers with no relation and only on griddlers.net.
Hope you can do something

Well, I don't have a screenshot handy, and I was redirected from numerous binary puzzles, plus non-puzzle pages. I haven't had it happen anywhere else, but I haven't gone much of anywhere else. If it happens again -- I just spent some time solving and didn't have it happen -- I'll try and get a screenshot.

Here is where I was redirected from just now. I re-emphasize that this is happening on griddlers.net only, and given that this has been reported by others, the problem is most likely on your end.

Still happening. I was redirected from the same page as above, to here:

Hi, this is causing me headache. I found this tutorial https://malwaretips.com/blogs/safesystemupgrade-net-removal/ .
I think it is combination of virus and use case of our site - user is for long time on one page and in this situation is the malware activated. Be carefull using AdwCleaner - there are also fake versions on internet. Read this article first http://www.howtogeek.com/209654/scammers-are-using-a-fake-version-of-adwcleaner-to-trick-people/ . Rasto

Hi, as a inexperienced computer expert, I suggest you to run a free malware scanner to have a full scan of your computer. From your discription, your computer may be infected by malware. It is possible that the malware is a browser hijacker. The main characteristics a browser hijacker will do is to hijack users' default homepage, search engine, startup page, and new tab with its annoying and dangerous one without any permission. If your browser settings have been modified, you can follow the guide to restore to the default one. Once your browser is replaced by the malware, you will be constantly redirected to other websites that you are not going to visit. Some stubborn and tricky browser hijacker will force you to download unwanted or rogue software on your computer. Additionally, you may receive lots of error or fake software update pop up windows on the browser. If you don't know about what browser hijacker is, what harm it will do to damage the computer and how to preven such malware, you can carefully read the posts in this website that mainly guide users to know about all types of malware and show them the detailed steps to quickly and completely get rid of the malicious programs.
