I sent in a ticket about this as well. They damn well better fix this before search engines start flagging every STO site as a redirect/hack site.

Can you post the URL that you are using before you hit the redirect? I've tried every one I know of for logging into the STO site, and none of them redirected me elsewhere. I can pass this info along if you share it. Thanks!

Cheers,

Brandon =/\=

Hey there, BranFlakes.

I've been using http://sto.perfectworld.com to go to the main page. But if I give it two seconds, it redirects to some vlmac.com site with about a 100 character string at the end of it, then goes to the main PWE registration page. If I click on "click here to continue", it sends me to the main PWI page.

I'm suspecting I've got at least one issue with this computer, since I'm also getting popup ads in the bottom right corner of random pages, and if I X them out, it blacks out most of the bottom half of the page, and I have to refresh it.

Ticket number is 130126-000506. However, they're not acknowledging the problem. It's not so much the support page, for me, it's been almost every main page for any PWE game I try to access. It's done it here, Champions Online, and PWI as well.

This sounds like you have a bad 'Ad-ware' trojan that is trying to maliciously insert ads, and directs your web-viewing via a malware web proxy....

Take your system to a professional Virus/Trojan removing service. Or you can take more drastic measures yourself (such as a disk format and system re-install)

I'm suspecting the same thing, but since all I've been doing for the last three weeks is work, STO, and sleep (with this occasional thing called "eating" mixed in there somewhere), I don't see where it could have come from. If there is one, though, I'll find it.
