Norton regularly blocks a Web Attack: Malvertisement website redirect 10
Starting January 2018, Norton frequently captures and blocks a malware from Google Chrome. The message goes like this "an intrusion attempt by 188.8.131.52 was blocked" The details of the attack are as follows -
IPS Alert Name: Web Attack : Malvertisement Website Redirect 10
Default Action: No action required
Attacking computer : 184.108.40.206, 80
Attacker URL :
I am thankful Norton is doing its job blocking this attack. But I am concerned because this attack is quite regular and from the same source. Whenever I close or click any links of any website sometimes it opens a new window in the same tab with the above url. However, the link does not show any ads or information, normally it shows "the site can't be reached" I am keen to know why this intrusion happens frequently although am doubly sure i didn't open or click spammy links from emails, website, etc. I have already scanned the system completely and nothing out of the ordinary was discovered. Could you please help?
