A few bad links and issues have crept into the web site, so I’m doing some winter maintenance. Should be mostly transparent to site readers.
My web site recently started periodically interrupting navigation by redirecting users to advertising pages hosted by Go.goadvs.com. Needless to say, I was not pleased.
Go.goadvs.com is a notorious example of the “advertising spam” category of malware. Generally, it infects people’s browsers by installing its own browser extension.
However, in this particular case, I traced it to the SiteMeter widget that I’ve been using since 2010. It’s clearly been compromised in some way, so I’ve removed it from the web site.
