    Me too. The whole center frame(s) gets hijacked once you hover over some trigger. Had to use an extremely crippled browser to get any links to work. Clicking anywhere took me to "myfood.ltd". I blocked it in my host file to be safe. I can't believe more people haven't reported this...

    The inclk.com scam used to be a sneakware exploit that would install itself into browsers as an add-on, but it looks like they've graduated to hijacking websites somehow. It's only affecting AZ links in Firefox for me; Chrome and Edge appear to be working normally, as does Safari on iPad.

    What browser are you using ? and are you using any form of javascript because I'm not being hijacked here!

    Update:-

    Install an add on called:- noscript *
    This applies to firefox but I'm not sure if it also works with chrome!

    Afterwards run ccleaner

    Tools/ addons
    in the search type in* 'noscript security suite'

    Like the one that forces you to install malicious browser extensions with a wide range of fake system error messages?

    I would consider them more of a necessary evil. usualy harmless indeed.
    but even google ads serve malware from time to time.

    No site owner has the time or the tools for that matter to inspect ads. so as a consumer you have to protect yourself.
    isn't that peeplink? that's a diffrent domain right?

    I used to hit the "x" and pres alt-f4 at the same time. but that closes firefox just like task-manager,
    what I do now is hit the close button and press ctrl + w to close the tab and continue to the download

    how can an a browser window force you to install anything? :woot:

    the popup opens when you make a click with your mouse at any place on the page and it only opens once.

    nobody forces you. AudioZ is not a private site accessed by invites only or after donation :dont:

    indeed. and with tools like uBlock origin, how can we even complain? :dunno:

    i don't see how that could be possible. can you shoot a video for me please?
    since when did you start experience this behavior at AudioZ? does it happens only at AudioZ? what about PeepLink?

    Thank you

    You just need to install Malwarebytes and every pop-up is blocked, it works for me on every browser.

    Ok, I should have written "try to".
    Are you sure semantics are the issue here and not malicious ads delivered from AZ?

    another bad use of words :no: there are no malicious ads at AudioZ. Like @Kwissbeats explained, no advertising company is insured not to have them, but even if they pop up once in a while - they do everything to take them down asap.

    yes, that's how popups work. but only for unregistered guests, and only once in 10 minutes.

    Ehm, nope. This morning I could get one every second, meanwhile it seems to be one every several (~ 20) seconds.
    Furthermore these popups occured today and other than I posted in #16 they're not gone.

    Because registering on sites that try to link me to malware/blast me with popups might not be the best idea? Dunno, just spitballin here.

    please let me know if it continues to behave like that in a few days.

    alternatively you could buy access to one of the private trackers and wait for them to upload releases from AudioZ :yes:
