INFECTED DOWNLOAD SITE

Recommended Posts

When clicking on any of the download links on your Aslain's Mods site to download the latest World of Warships Mods I am taken to Ad.Fly which then counts down.   Unlike in past downloads this site no longer has the "Skip" button in the upper right hand corner and when I click on the "Continue" button in the message I am taken to a Porn Site and had to power down my computer.    HELP PLEASE.       [email protected]

It's not infected, but it's being hated by antivirs due to ads type. Click on direct link if you cannot stand it or sort it out, and consider supporting me in different way like paypal or patreon, or don't support at all :(

All of the download links still has the 'same' "wait for 5 seconds, then SKIP AD button appears" when I checked them just now.

 

Sounds more like you already have/had something on your computer interfering with the websites, changing them (browser hijacking and such)

As someone who helps advertise this modpack I have had several people come back to me saying the same thing, it's either a metric crap ton of pop ups or porn stuff. Even had a couple people who had additional things get downloaded to their computer. I ALWAYS recommend them reinstalling windows the game and downloading using the direct link. The ad links are just too risky. If the ad links are blocked by antivirus companies it's done for a reason.

Never had an issue with the ads myself. Never seen 'porn stuff'. Never really had popups.. might have had the occasional fishy looking ad, that tries to do popup dialogs, but Chrome can easily stop those.

 

I really don't get what you and others might be seeing.

I'm just passing on what I have been told by several people. 

 

Something you might want to consider is we Americans don't have the same internet laws you guys over the pond do, ADs are tailored specifically to target people based on location and other factors. So us Americans may see far different ads than you guys over on the other side of the globe because of certain laws that apply to you guys that don't apply to us.

How do I find the "direct link?"      I thought the link I was clicking on were the direct links?

The text says "direct".. just to the right of the download link. You might need glasses? :tounge:

You clearly aren't clicking on "direct", but on "download link".

OK I found it.    I clicked on the link but on the word "download link#" in front of the direct word.    I'll try that.   THANKS  Dave

It is working!    I'll bet a lot of other people also make the same mistake I made.    If you had not circled it I would never have realized that the word "direct" in the brackets was the real link to use.    THANKS A GAZILLION!     Dave

They are both download links, the first link is just ads first so Aslain can get income for the awesome work he does
