    Url2short.info

    Advertisements



    How come every time I click on a Google link to Valuemd I get diverted to this site URL2SHORT.INFO

    Anyone else get this?

    I have been getting this as well, and nothing will get rid of it. Just about everyone I know at this point has an issue with it where I am.

    Do you mean the Google ads ON ValueMD, or to you mean Google ads on other sites pointing TO ValueMD?

    In either case, it would be some type of glitch. But it would help us locate the issue quicker.

    He meant the first link you get from a search for "valuemd" on Google. If you click on it, it usually takes you to "url2short.info".

    This was the result of a hacker that was apparently redirecting sites. The issue has been identified and resolved. Thanks for the report.

    I would imagine it's on Teh Google side. It's very strange. Someone is basically targeting VMD?

    The hack is not on our end, but our techs have been altering the codes to fix it on our end instead of waiting for a fix from external sources.

    With that said, our techs are currently aware of the issue and working to resolve it as soon as possible. I'll post here once it's been resolved. Thanks for your reports.
