pnl.hostjs.net/

This web site keeps opening a new tab on my Chrome browser and recommending that I download something that will take less than a minute even though there is no indication what the software is.  Does anyone know what this is, and is it dangerous?

The following is the URL on my  browser: https://pnl.hostjs.net/sd/wrap-0.01.html?u=https%3A%2F%2Fad.yieldmanager.com%2Fiframe3%3FAAAAAFM2SAC...

Looks like you probably have an adware/spyware infection: http://botcrawl.com/how-to-remove-the-ad-yieldmanager-virus/

Re: pnl.hostjs.net/

I have had the same issue and the adware removal program suggested by another user did not work for me to remove this.  What has worked is going to the Java website and removing old versions of Java (Here is a link from the java website: http://www.java.com/en/download/faq/uninstaller_toolinfo.xml ).

 

It appears after doing a lot of research that this appears to be a java script that attaches itself to an update somehow and because it is java, my internet virus remover Webroot will place a warning when the script opens the additional window opens, but will not remove the script, nor will my Malwarebyes Anti-Malware.  Removing old java versions is the only thing that did work.  Also make sure you have the most recent version of Java installed!

 

Hope this might help someone else with this annoying problem!   Sherri :-)
