Understanding & Stopping Malicious Redirects
Many website owners don’t know they’re infected with malicious redirects until they start getting calls from wary customers. Instead of the site they were expecting, it loaded some pretty shady content from the nether reaches of the internet.
Malicious redirects are caused by hackers injecting scripts into infected sites that send visitors to destinations where they usually get scammed or infected with malware.
Not to be confused with SEO spam, malicious redirects take away — or redirect — visitors from their intended websites.
