Oh Come On !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
You know what you are doing
but, just for the record...............
-----------------------------------------------"Can you please provide me with your OS version , browser version and your GEO ?"
Linux Mint 18
Windows 10 build 16299
macOS 10.14 Mojave
Firefox (latest version for each platform)
Chrome (latest for each platform)
Chromium (latest for Linux Mint)
Internet Explorer 11.726.16299.0
My VPN has me variously in USA, England, Australia, Netherlands, Eire and Sweden
IT DOESN'T MATTER -
This is what happens (and you know it does) in any browser on any platform at any location
1) type opensubtitles.org in browser
2) as soon as you place curser in search bar then a tab is opened at cobalten.com
3) new tab opens at whichever scam, porn or virus site cobalten.com redirects to
cobalten.com nearly always redirects to virus, scam and malware sites
Out of interest I just went to Opensubtitles.org in Safari on my Ipad and guess what? no surprise... straight into cobalt.com which imediately redirected me to a scam site.
"According to the links you have provided , only the first works which redirects to ad content that is not related to any porn or malware."
Yes it does (it changes each time)
And....read my post properly. Quote "I have not shown the complete link to avoid accidental openings"
----------------"As i mentioned we are not serving any adult content. Is it possible to provide us with a video so we can see how it redirects from cobalten?"
I gave the complete link to the graphic hard core pornography that you provide in my last post
-----------------"Although you mentioned that you fresh installed your browser. Is there any chance that you have you installed accidentally any extension/addon that promotes other on click ads?"
OK, for clarity
I installed a clean version of Linux Mint. I then opened Firebird. I then typed opensubtitles.org. When I placed my curser on the search bar, a tab opened at cobalten.com which immediately redirected to a scam site.
Please do not treat me like an idiot, I can see what is happening
Opensubtitles has a deal with Propeller Ads Media such that when a user searches on Opensubtitles a tab is opened for cobalten.com which then redirects to whichever scam, virus or porn site is the bigger payer.
Either that or Propeller Ads Media has hacked the Opensubtitles site or dropped a virus on them
Incidently, this is the link to see what Malwarebytes have to say about cobalten.com https://blog.malwarebytes.com/detections/cobalten-com/
and here https://www.maltiverse.com/hostname/cobalten.com
and here https://quttera.com/detailed_report/cobalten.com
But this is taking up too much of my time
Can somebody push this to the top of Opensubtitles please?
It was originally meant as a heads-up for Opensubtitles, but if they chose to ignore it I don't realy care as I have now blocked all advertising on Opensubtitles and specifically blocked cobalten.org from all of the browsers in all of our PCs and added them to the host files
so.................................. If opensubtitles.org don't care that their users, of whatever age, are being redirected to porn, viruses, scams and other malware ....then ..... Good-night and God Bless
