malvertisement website redirect 21

G'day all,

Whenever I open Firefox (Firefox Quantum) I get the following message pop up " Norton blocked an attack by: Web Attack: malvertisement website redirect 21".  Clicking on details tells me the attacking computer, source address, etc.  Obviously I've run NIS, as well as Malwarebytes and the Malwarebytes Anti-Rootkit with no success.

Any help gratefully appreciated!

Re: malvertisement website redirect 21

This is usually an ad on a website that is trying to redirect you to either a different ad, or to a false malware warning page. It is nothing on your computer, so nothing for a Norton, or other product to scan for. 

Norton has done its job in this instance, so nothing to worry about.

To help protect even more from this kind of redirect, you might want to install an ad blocker extension in your browser(s).

Things happen. Export/Backup your Norton Password Manager data.
