So I m on vacation, and when I m inside, I m always on the wifi. We re using the wifi from the people underneath our apartment, and it works great but there s one problem, on random websites that I sometimes go to, it would just redirect me multiple times and then tell me I won an iPhone or any other random virus

So I m on vacation, and when I m inside, I m always on the wifi. We re using the wifi from the people underneath our apartment, and it works great but there s one problem, on random websites that I sometimes go to, it would just redirect me multiple times and then tell me I won an iPhone or any other random virus crap and it s starting to get annoying and I know it s from the wifi, because any other wifi works fine, any solutions?

My answer is the one that was chosen as the best answer.
The reason I'm giving you this is because certain types of malware (AKA: Viruses) can redirect you to different websites. It's also best not to click on any alert boxes that pop up when you are redirected cause sometimes its a piece of malware that does that and can silently download and install something onto your computer. The buttons you can select in the pop up window can contain any type of script and if it says ok it could do something that you wouldn't expect. Code can be written, however someone likes, but its best to have knowledge of this stuff so you can protect your computer from harmful things and from being remotely accessed by a random person you may not know.

First go to

[Hard Disk] > System > Library > CoreServices > Captive Network Assistant.app

Click on the app once, and hit ‘return’ on your keyboard. This will make the name editable.

2. Hit the ‘left arrow’ key once to move the cursor to the beginning of the name and to unselect the text.

3. Type an ‘X’ (actually any letter will do, but I like ‘X’ so I can easily find the app later at the bottom of the list even if I forgot its exact name).

4. Hit ‘return’ on the keyboard. At this point, OS X will ask you to provide an Admin password as only Admin users are allowed to mess with files in the System directory. Type in your password and hit ‘OK’.

The name should now read ‘XCaptive Network Assistant.app’.

And that’s it! Captive Network Assistant will never run again unless you decide to change its name back to what it was (to do so, just repeat the procedure above and remove the ‘X’).
