As the website still has a malware infection I’ve decided to offer this
removal tool to members who may wish to use it.

The tool detects and removes the malicious code before the web browser
displays the page.
For best results it should be used in conjunction with an advert blocker
which will stop the multitude of malware domains from loading in the browser.

Check out the video where I show how to install the tool and how to configure
advert blocking software to allow the websites Google ads through.
You will also see where the malicious code resides and that code being
removed by the tool.

At the end of the video you will see that over 50 malware domains load
when the advert blocking is turned off. In testing I’ve seen as many as 80.

It should be noted that Google also have problems with malicious adverts:

Quote:
It's estimated that Google's ad network reaches about a quarter billion unique viewers
in the U.S. alone. With access to that many computers, it's no wonder cybercriminals
are abusing DoubleClick in order to distribute money-making malware.
The malware's goal: to mine cryptocurrency on infected computers and funnel
earnings back to its criminal controllers.

Am I right in assuming that you have created this Soliloquist, especially for purpose?

Yes that’s correct.

I created the removal tool just after I posted the Malware Analysis thread.

I didn’t offer it to the members here at that time as I thought that the website would
be cleaned of malware within days, but we are still waiting, and as we do
more members are complaining of phishing attempts, or virus infections as a direct
result of visiting this site.

I would like to emphasize the importance of using some form of advert blocking.
If you want to block all malware domains but allow Wrongplanet’s Google ads,
follow the guide in the video.
Or an easy way to block all ads over your complete network is it to use an
ad blocking DNS provider like Alternate DNS 23.253.163.53 and 198.101.242.72 on your router.

Alex still hasn't fixed it?

Disgraceful.

It should run across all platforms, but it depends on the browser you are using.

The script is written to run with the Tampermonkey extension.
That's available for:
Chrome, Microsoft Edge, Safari, Firefox, Opera Next, Dolphin Browser, and UC Browser.

The browsers that I've tested it with are:
Chrome, Vivaldi, Opera Next and Firefox Quantum.

Thanks for all this information and your contribution to member safety. You must be very clever.
