Re: Please put a stop to Chaturbate

It's still popping up on my iPad and it's incredibly annoying. I am not using the back button at all.

I hope this problem is remedied soon, because it's making me very hesitant to visit WetCanvas.

Re: Please put a stop to Chaturbate

Same here, this website or whatever has really latched itself to this website. Hopefully one of these days someone will get rid of it forever.

Re: Please put a stop to Chaturbate

Never-ever seen it. On any of our systems. ((((KNOCK WOOD))))
Not even when I take my devices into the city and use different internet connections.

Re: Please put a stop to Chaturbate

And..... It just popped up again.

Why is it taking so long to get rid of it? It is both offensive and annoying.

Goodness knows what the problem is, the F+W techies don't seem to be able to find it.

Re: Please put a stop to Chaturbate

Just did a Google search for how to remove the chaturbate popup. Obviously angled to the use of malwarebytes (which I incidentally use) here it is.

I don't see chaturbate but then again I periodically scan my pc with malwarebytes which I have resident on the taskbar and remove temporary files with ccleaner. I also have the AdblockPlus extension on my Chrome browser.

Re: Please put a stop to Chaturbate

I too have AdblockPlus and Malwarebytes but it still crept through! Ignore it and it might go away....!

Doug, if I were given access, I could spend some time hunting the snark ...

Re: Please put a stop to Chaturbate

I sense your frustration Edmund but unfortunately I have no influence with the site owners. You could try sending a pm to Courtney Jordan our admin contact.

Re: Please put a stop to Chaturbate

Some of the tech savvy users having the problem might look into this and respond if it works for them..

http://www.virusresearch.org/remove-...edirect-virus/
http://www.freezingcomputer.com/chat...removal-tools/
https://www.theguardian.com/technolo...ads-in-windows


From reading about it, once you get it , it is on your system and stays until you get your system clean..

Have tech savvy friend/family read up on it & check your system if you aren't sure how to do removals..

I'm not very savvy at anything, but my PhD in comp sci forced me to acquire some elementary ability with computers, now outdated.

Those links are ads. Like "buy cream xxx to get rid of acne".

Chaturbate is -my guess- a javascript popup call which a "consultant" working for the company has "installed" in the forum. It can probably be effectively blocked by users blacklisting the domain on their computers, but the real "cure" is to have someone trace the malware in the code and stamp on it.

Re: Please put a stop to Chaturbate

I know some are ads, but some "possibly " tell how to manually remove from your system..
It is saying those having the problem have gotten "something " added into their device maybe from WC or maybe from elsewhere..

Otherwise wouldn't all of us be getting this pop up? If it was coming from WC?
Or possibly our system, browser & ad blocker combo is blocking it?

I have letters too...RSI, OCD , IBS & PDQ LOL

Re: Please put a stop to Chaturbate

if the domain(s) serving chaturbate is already on your personal software's blacklist, then you'll never see it. in fact you probably will never have seen it. The software is like personal automatic shades that could protect your eyes from the sight of a bikini. But wc will continue to serve chaturbate popups to the world at large.
