Links in Wiki lead to apparent ad network/spam

Asked by pbhj on 2017-10-24

When I follow the link it goes to a spam page.

Similarly for all the links on

For example:
* go to
* click on (main menu, Extensions)
* that page forwards to automatically (by javascript AFAICT)
* that page forwards, again automatically, to
* that page forwards in the same way to
* my DNS provider blocks that page as a spam network

Such extensions should be removed from the wiki until it can be verified that they've not been compromised. I'd suspect anything on that linked site to be carrying a virus.

Can you flag that link in some way as suspicious?

In the long run the extension system could do with formalising I feel, it's a massive security liability at the moment from what I can tell. A system with automated updating would be good !
