intad.pag2p.co/dva1/int, sidepage.co and ui.streamride.net

has been creating a panic to internet users around the globe.

Everyone who first encounters it thinks that their computer is infected by a malware. This has made many users to replace/reinstall their OS (and losing many data).

But, the actual culprit is your ISP (Internet Service Provider). The ISPs has become greedy and they are trying to get more out of you.

intad.pag2p.co

is an interstitial ad service campaign.
The ISP send your url request to the ad server, which shows you their ad for few seconds and then redirects to the url you requested. Many ISPs do this to only the first request send, but if they get more greedy then they will do this to every request you send.

sidepage.co and streamride.net

serve ad blocks using javascript.
This is most frustrating or dangerous thing an ISP is doing to their users. ISP insert a piece of javascript code to each http page the user requests. What they are doing is against the law. The javascript has access to all the data we enter or view in that web page.

If you see this kind of activity while using internet, then you should immediately contact your ISP and ask them to remove it. If they don’t, you can complain this to the authorities (court) and ask for compensation for compromising your data with third part.

Hope it helps! 🙂
