To those in the Cabal of the hidden society of people who run the web (though we don’t exist)… I apologize for missing the meeting today and giving my monthly statistics and logistics report.
I get to the site to log in and this shit pops up on my screen. Telling me I’m being investigated, my ISP is cooperating and I have a big problem.
All because I went to a password-protected site???
Now, I can see how this would scare the bejezus out of some newbie who’s logging in to their favorite pr0n site… it seems to redirect you when a password prompt would pop up. I’m not too terribly worried about that because I don’t go to pr0n sites, nor will I waste my time or money with that garbage.
I’m sure, if you click that link above, it is now reading YOUR IP, and ISP info… it’s just a simple trick using HTTP_REFERRERS, nothing all that clever.
It’s hawking some product called Evidence Eliminator, I guess so we don’t suffer same fate as Pete Townshend who was cleared of any wrongdoing, and only seems to only be guilty of being in the wrong place at the wrong time. (You gotta love how they put him on the offender’s registry “just to be safe”. Guilty until proven innocent, but proven innocent but guilty anyway. What bullshit! More circular logic FROM BigBrother™and the System™)
Aaaanyway… I’ve found nothing in Regedit, which leads me to believe this is some kind of redirecting DLL.
Aside FROM paying $149.95 for this (and then, I’m sure they’ll gladly remove this block). How do I get this crap off my computer???
//** UPDATE: I hit Tools/Reset Original Internet Explorer Settings, and that seemed to do the trick. I can now access password protected sites again. This product may not be a bad thing to have… but I am not particularly thrilled with their sales tactics. **//
I’ll just keep this here in case someone else encounters this problem.
