Hi guys,

 

I am using Bigpipe, and there are some phishing windows poped up on my devices without touching/ clicking any link.

 

Does anyone find similar problem as well?

 

 

 

I have ever setup DNS server manually but unfortunately some site could not be resolve very well. so I changed back to Bigpipe default DNS.

 

Now some ads windows pop up even no phishing window so far.

 

 

 

I am afraid Bigpipe DNS got cache pollution or something but Bigpipe says there is no problem at all ,and  no one else find same problem.

Router compromised?





Information wants to be free. The Net interprets censorship as damage and routes around it.

I thinks this possibility is very low.   

 

btw, after I changed DNS server of my router, phishing pop up disappeared. Although I got new problems...

No issues here either - I was also going to suggest that your router has been compromised somehow. If you are still having other issues, possibly backup the config and reset the router, re-configure at a basic level and see if you still have the issues?

Thanks for reply, I just changed to a new router with default&basic Bigpipe config. 

 

No phishing so far, but got many disturbing ads on the same website. I have been accessing it for a while, there was no these ads before. They appear right after I changed my router.

 

 

 

Below is the story:

 

 

 

     

  1. Moved to Bigpipe, was good for quite a while
  2. Phishing appeared one day
  3. Phishing appeared more, Bigpipe said "everything is GOOD"
  4. Changed DNS server instead of using Bigpipe default DNS, no phishing for a while.
  5. got some problems accessing some website/server, Bigpipe said "everything is GOOD"
  6. no ads on a website
  7. changed router with basic/default bigpipe config, 5 fixed
  8. disturbing ads appear on the website of 6, Bigpipe said "everything is GOOD"  -  now

Are you sure this particular website has not been compromised somehow? What if you view the site from a mobile phone on data?

In theory, I have to say this possibility exists. But the ads appear right after I changed the router, I don't think it's just a coincidence.

 

Any way thank you for your idea, I will try it by another connection.

Could you please PM the site to me?

 

 

 

 

Thank you very much, my friend has tested it for me, no ads for the website. 

 

I tested the website again last night, ads still there.  

 

maybe I should try another router or reset it to see what'll happen.

It is gotta be the router if all devices are affected. Also suggest using a PC never connected to the network to setup router as o e of your PC might be infected and corrupting the router.

Make sure to change the admin password. And scan all your Windows and/or Mac computers around.

Thank you very much for your advice, it's very helpful. 

 

I will try my other router first as I got spare one, that'll be easier.

 

I suppose iPhone/iPad is hard to get infected?
