    Redirected supercub.org google searches to Myfilestore

    Folks, you may have experienced when searching the site with google that you are occasionally redirected to a "myfilestore" website when you click the link. We are going through with a fine tooth comb to get to the bottom of this without turning everything off. I made a number of adjustments this morning. Let me know if have this problem after this post. It only occurs occasionally, or if I broke something else in the process!

    Thanks for the help!

    It's happening to me when I do a google site search on Backcountrypilot.org and eaglersnest.com as well so it's not just your site.

    Good to hear. It's been going on a long time and I tried to make a video of how it was working to send to you SJ, but it didn't work at the time and I ran out of time to followup.

    I actually added the myfilestore site to a blacklist of websites so it at least didn't open the site overtime. Still tried, but it stopped it opening.

    In case it helps, here is what I find.
    - Only seems to happen when doing a google search that provides archived results. i.e., older stuff. (One reason I think it's more of a google issue)
    - If you click on it and it takes you to the site, closing the window, going back and clicking the link again, or copying and pasting the link seems to get proper results.
    - I actually think it's more of a google issue than it is a supercub.org issue, as it's the google result that is providing a bad link somehow attached to a good link.

    Peter.

    There is also a browser exploit that causes the same thing.

    Steve, where does it hide to exploit the browser, in the site?

    FYI, I am now seeing this on Android when clicking on the link in a notification email. Often the first time takes me to myfilestore. I go back to the email and click again, all is good...

    Ok, think I might have this one squashed. Let me know if it is still happening.
