Hi,

This is some strange stuff.

On chrome, when I clicked on a link, it took me to this page instead. It only happens when I left click the link. And it doesn't happen for every link.

http://203.94.248.63:3000/noti/?tm=1502865384494&fingerprint=c2VwLW5vLXJlZGlyZWN0&json={"url":"/","referer":"","host":"drlipygupta.com","categories":[0],"reputations":[1]}

On the top, which is the page title, I guess, it says :::Noti Manager:::

That I.P belongs to MTNL, so does anyone know what's going?

If you're trying to reproduce, here is the original link - https://www.quora.com/Whenever-I-shave-I-get-white-patches-on-my-face-My-skin-reflects-when-razors-are-used-How-to-overcome-this-problem - I clicked on Website: Best Dermatologist in Green Park, Dermatologist Max Hospital | Dr Lipy Gupta. Also, this is not an advertisement, hope it doesn't come off that way, I can remove the links if it appears to be like that.

probably related to the new advanced ad injection being done by mtnl.

Thats how these ad injectors work, your data will only come through after the ads content is loaded. since you blocked it, it prevents the rest of the page from loading.

I had similar issues with Nextra, they too injected ads at random, when I isolated and blocked the source, the page wouldn't load, I had to try a couple of minutes later for the regular page to load.

The only way to stop these is to use https as much as possible, it won't be able to inject into a secure page without compromising its integrity and hence being rejected out right by your browser.

install https everywhere so that the domains which at least support https gets loaded over https. most indian news websites are http right now which is a damn shame.

As a matter of practice, I use (1) https everywhere (2) no-script (firefox) or script-safe (chrome) (3 ) flashblock (4) privacy badger

Browsing has become a constant game of cat and mouse

Good that you do, it is always first and foremost your responsibility to practice safe browsing, better safe that sorry. (That just sounded like a sex ed lesson) :D
