*Raises Hand*

 

Yes, also receiving this popup after clicking on nexusmods homepage links from within my bookmarks or from typing in google search/address bar.

 

The site that pops over the nexus site is showing as "https://windows-protector.com:443".

Thank you for reporting. I've passed this on to our ad provider.

Started happening to me 3 days ago.  Very annoying, have to shut down the page and then find it again, only happens on Nexus.

 

I suppose if I had read more than the first page of posts, I would have seen you were already aware.

Dark0ne... hope this isn't a necro but the redirects are really really bad currently:

2100hr, SE Usa, Edge Browser

 

Seems to be associated with plugin adds in LR corner. After about a 45sec delay the redirects are constant.  Fallout 4 almost immediate, Skyrim you have a couple minutes before they start.  Stopped checking there.  Will test Chrome now.

Samples:

 
 
 
Update edit:
Chrome gives us about 5-7 min before redirects start.
Sample redirects (in Chrome)
 
 
 
 
[Update]
Looks okay today, no redirects in Edge.  Oddly, even though Edge and Chrome were acting up yesterday Firefox didn't exhibit the issue!

Still occuring: Quick redirects to mcafee virus scams and a few others. Quick research indicates this is an issue that keeps reoccuring over the past couple years.

Still occurring but strangely it starts in the evening about 1900hr EST and stops sometime in the early morning for me.

I ran a sitecheck which reports:

"Medium Security Risk" due to an old version of PHP being run

 

Suggested corrections:

Hardening Improvements
Security Headers

Missing security header for ClickJacking Protection. Alternatively, you can use Content-Security-Policy: frame-ancestors 'none'.

Missing security header to prevent Content Type sniffing.

Missing Strict-Transport-Security security header.

Missing Content-Security-Policy directive. We recommend to add the following CSP directives (you can use default-src if all values are the same): script-src, object-src, base-uri, frame-src

Leaked PHP version. Your site is displaying your PHP version in the HTTP headers. Please set expose_php = Off.

First time on forum since I didn't know where else to go for this. I just had multiple pop up redirect ads in a row while trying to browse the site just now- including the mcafee one, scan didn't find anything and I have no trouble elsewhere. I understand needing to run ads to pay for the site but these are getting very obnoxious.
Edit: Got two more, mcaffee again and one was called matildawu.online, or atleast thats what is was called in the url.
