Weird. URL redirect that was unexpected.
So I often type web addresses directly into the URL line on my browser. Today I did that, but erroneously included a misspelling. The site I wanted to go to was http://usaa.com, but instead I typed http://usaas.com And I got an odd response. It popped back with a spammy redirect address… I did this a few times. Once redirect ended up at to www.givemethisoffer.com , once to get1.mysecurify.com, and once to www.homeinsurancespecials.com. When I watch the process carefully, I can see the first redirect is going to searchiq.co
Uh oh. I must have a virus? So I do a whole lot of testing. I don’t directly find anything. So I do some more testing. Turns out somebody bought http://usaas.com and that site responds accordingly. Site just pushes out garbage and crap. Not sure if that is intentional, but that’s my guess. Total garbage stuff. What has the internet become? Site verified via https://gwhois.org Note: and on the chance that the site is legit and just got hacked, I did send an email off to the site owner / abuse contact informing them of same.
