Stop Using Adfly Links

Lately, on every adfly link, Norton says it blocked an attack on port 22. I also notice I can Not download mods because the skip ad button was taken over by a malicious ad, and redirects me to other downloads. Adfly Might Be Dangerous. Especially in the future, as malware gets more advanced, Adfly could become a security risk. Clearly adfly is not a trustworthy source and I think links should instead use something like google drive or dropbox. Download Links should be moved out of adfly.

I also am a web developer, and know an updated/unmaintained software (which adfly might be) can be dangerous for security. If unmaintained, security risks grow as hackers get smarter.

It seems adfly links don't stop ads from injecting code at all. And if a user does not have a good antivirus like norton, they could easily get hacked. I know there were tickets about this in the past, but this is 2019 and adfly malware is getting worse. I understand a lot of people here use it, but they may need to find something else to protect users from malware.

Adfly sucks. It'll also ask you to accept notifications in which it'll send you (mostly) inappropriate notifications whenever you're browsing the net, just because you wanted to download a single map/skin.
