    Hi Everyone,

    I came across this thread and believe that I may have the same or similar issue as others who have posted. Starting a few days ago, when clicking on links, I’ve been often been redirected to a site that has the web address “goneviral.com”, followed by a bunch of random letters and numbers. The page has no content and displays the “Bad Request / HTTP Error 400”. Additionally, while trying to navigate between sites, sometimes a “linkbucks.com” banner pops up and blocks my access to a site until I click “skip download”. I believe linkbucks.com and goneviral.com are related sites or are the same organization.
    this issue appears across all devices in my home, so probable it has effected by wireless network.
    I have tried to click the URLS in the above website.. all take me to goneviral.com only…

    Please suggest what could be the solution.
