Using Firefox on Windows 10 every time when I visit ebay.com I get redirected to a clearly fraudulent website telling me I've won some prize and asking me to enter my personal information.
The website is also trying to convince me that it is legitimate by posing as my ISP and showing my IP address.
I try to keep my machine as maintained as possible with updates, scans and CCleaner. I researched a bit on the web and found that this problem has occurred with a lot of other people on Ebay. At this point I am 99% convinced it is an Ebay problem.
Why is this happening? (And, ideally, how to stop it?)
- Every time I visit ebay.com for the first time after running ccleaner (deleting cookies), I get redirected to scammy website.
- I'm using Firefox on Windows 10. It happened also on Chrome but the browser detected the fraudulent nature of the website and blocked it.
- This thing occurs only with ebay.com
