Q106's website is infected with malware

Post by MWmetalhead » Sat Oct 24, 2020 10:30 pm

When accessing to listen to the station's livestream, my Bitdefender software went nuts.

"Suspicious connection blocked" message flashed two or three times.

Using Robinhood for online equities and options trades is a terrible idea. USE A LEGITIMATE BROKER-DEALER INSTEAD! (Fidelity, Schwab, TD Ameritrade, Edward Jones, etc.)

I've received those alerts on several station websites, mostly belonging to iHeart properties. Cumulus had a problem with the WLS-AM website that set off a bunch of alarms a year or two back. Turns out in that case someone hacked into the site and planted a malicious script.

Shortwave is the ORIGINAL satellite radio.

I had some strange redirect on IHeart websites in Toledo back around 2014. Those were fixed, thankfully.
