Chrome Redirect from Homepage?

Posted 25 August 2018 - 10:49 AM

I noticed this weird redirect today that happens only in Chrome if I go directly to www.dreamincode.net or https://www.dreamincode.net :

http://www1.widgetserver.com/?subid4=1535218413.0596025440&kw=Best+Personal+Credit+Cards&KW1=best%20personal%20credit%20cards&KW2=fast%20online%20college%20degrees&KW3=old%20website%20cloud%20backup%20copy&KW4=job%20posting%20boards&searchbox=0&domainname=0&backfill=0



Firefox works fine, curling works as well.

Chrome v. 68.0.3440.75
Firefox v. 61.0.1

For grins, I cleared the cache and took a look at what was going on network call wise.

Here is the network tab from chrome dev tools:

Firefox network calls:

Line 184 from the curl'ed page shows a javasript call to this domain:

<script type="text/javascript" src="https://cdn.widgetserver.com/syndication/subscriber/InsertWidget.js"></script><script type="text/javascript">if (WIDGETBOX) WIDGETBOX.renderWidget('2b581490-fcfb-4240-b3cb-a1bdd5d408c5');</script><noscript>Get the <a href="http://www.widgetbox.com/widget/programming-and-web-development-help-dreamincod">Programming and Web Development Help | DreamInCod</a> widget and many other <a href="http://www.widgetbox.com/">great free widgets</a> at <a href="http://www.widgetbox.com">Widgetbox</a>! Not seeing a widget? (<a href="http://docs.widgetbox.com/using-widgets/installing-widgets/why-cant-i-see-my-widget/">More info</a>)</noscript>

I've removed that old code. Let me know if it continues.
