Redirect from the first page to widgetserver.com

Here is an odd thing that I encountered a few minutes ago. I clicked on the Wet Canvas logo to go to the first page ( in order to check the anouncements for this months challenges) and my browser was redirected to this address below which loads an empty page. Or if it was to load something else ( a porn site or similar) it didn't because I run ublock origin with custom filters and so it didn't load anything else.

http://www6.widgetserver.com/?s_toke... ain=1&tdfs=1

I rechecked this on a new tab and it did it again.

So I'm not currently able to load the front page.
I'm posting this and I'll clear the browsers history to see if it will repeat it.

This is what I found online about this issue.

Marialena, the same thing happened to me several times after I signed out and tried to go to WC homepage. Yorky is aware as he experienced the same problem and will let F+W know. The problem is also being shared on the first thread (Report all Bugs).

Hopefully the problem will be fixed.

Re: Redirect from the first page to widgetserver.com

What browser do you use?
What OS or device?
and do you have an ad blocker on your browser?

This info might help others or the tech team..

I haven't seen any pop ups or redirects with Linux & Firefox w/ uBlock origin ad blocker..

This is a problem on all browsers, it is a site-wide hack and has been reported to the site owners. Members will have to follow email links, Google links or links i my signature to access the site until it is fixed.

Pale Moon on Linux Mint Tara with Ublock origin with custom filters and I clear history and cookies on each and every session with Click and Clear plugin. I've never encountered such problems before and I never saw the porn website either appearing in my screen.

At the link that I gave you above it seems that the redirection has to do with the HTML settings on Wet Canvas. So it is not a matter of browsers but a matter of the website itself.

Ok I fixed this. I added another custom filter on Ublock origin. If you have ublock origin then go to the settings on the tab "My filters" and add
widgetserver.com
and also widgetbox.com.
Then click apply changes and you will not see it again.

The matter is of course that soon we will have to block the whole universe in order to access wetcanvas.
Ublock is currently blocking 12 scripts on the forum boards, and 14 on the homepage.
These are only the scripts not the ads....

Re: Redirect from the first page to widgetserver.com

It happened to me also. I found out that forwarding is inicialized
only from the starting-page URL http://wetcanvas.com

If I enter a step deeper for example http://wetcanvas.com/forums
then I can enter. But I do not feel save :-)

The browser shows me also that the URL is not secure (SSL)

Hopefully you can fix it. Good luck and thank you !
