can someone help me please?!
When I'm using Chrome (or Fire Fox) I'm getting fullscreen popup advertising even on sites that I am certain do not have it. I see the web site it is trying to load is "
www.openadserving.com" in the status bar.
So i looked on this forum and I saw a same problem.. So i tried to fix it my self true Terminal.. But it doesn't work.. This was an answer from Sadi.. (Chrome Popup Malware "openadserving.com"?)
You haven't provided sufficient information to identify the problem accurately, but the following suggestions may help to identify or even hopefully solve it:
You can open your hosts file (enter this command in terminal:
sudo gedit /etc/hosts) and enter this line at the bottom:
127.0.0.1 www.openadserving.comAs this will prevent all connection between this site and your computer after restart, this might solve your problem or if it doesn't, then;
You can try a program like Net Activity Viewer to see a list of sites your browser is being connected, and add all undesirable addresses there as in the step 1.
You can try using a utility like hostsblock to prevent connection to such sites in general. (This utility can be downloaded and manually installed from ArchLinux repositories with just one minor modification, replacing pathname
/etc/init.din these files: hostsblock.sh, hostsblock-urlcheck.sh and rc.conf)
I did the first step but it doesn't work... i get this in my screen
MacBook-Pro-van-Anna:~ atoma92$ sudo gedit /etc/hosts Password: sudo: gedit: command not found
Please help me:(
