Hey guys, let me start off by saying - I keep my computer very secure. I never download things, go on dirty sites, or even browse sites that Im not completely familiar with. Yesterday whlist browsing Ebay, I got an odd popup. Not necessarily a popup, but it redirected the whole ebay page to a random "A Message from Out Sponsors" ad, it was incredibly weird. Ive ran scans with Norton 360 (I know people hate it) and Malwarebytes, and both have come up clean. But, being the paranoid person that I am, I decided to do a little more digging.

Here is some more info on people who have the same issue using ebay.

All of us keep our computers clean, (well, that's what the others say).

Some say its malware(which I personally don't believe) and some also say its a security hole in eBay's system. Someone found the scripts files that indicated the link from the url sponsor.adverstitial.com (then some random directing letters)

I never clicked on anything on the page and I automaticly exited my browser.

Others are getting this even on fresh installs on Windows XP and 7, and even on various computers.

Here was my exact link:

What do you guys think I should do? I really don't want to re-install Win8 and all my games, being that just GTA:V itself is 65 goshdarn GB.



I get so paranoid with this stuff, that I almost am about to go buy a new 840 EVO and WD Black :(
