How to remove akamaihd.net virus?

Just today, when I am accessing web sites like Facebook, Yahoo, Bing, and Gmail, a message will pop-up on the screen telling me that a security issue was detected on 252.a.akamaihd.net. The window asking that I should confirm the certificate. However, when I clicked on the button to verify, it did nothing as if I didn’t click it. The page just locks on this akamaihd.net.

This thing happens on Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, and Google Chrome, my 3 browsers. Since all of them were locked by akamaihd.net virus, Internet browsing is not possible on my computer. I have to use a tablet to post in this forum.

So far, steps I have taken to remove the akamaihd.net virus are uninstalling all the browsers and download new ones. Sadly, it didn’t help resolve the current issue. Anyone here having the same problem browsing the web due to this akamaihd.net virus, please share your thoughts.

Thanks,
Omar

  • To clear things up, akamaihd.net or Akamai Technologies is a CDN (Content Delivery Network). CDN are legitimate computer servers around the world that serves web contents like images, music, movies, etc… CDN was developed and build to deliver the contents from the nearest server so that it can reach the user in the quickest possible time.

    About akamaihd.net, it is being utilized by several web sites including Facebook. This is the reason why you will see an address in the status bar like ‘fbstatic-a.akamaihd.net’ when using Facebook.

    In short, whatever you are downloading from akamaihd.net is uploaded by web owners themselves and chances are, malware can evade the security and restrictions by akamaihd.net.

  • Hello everyone, I contacted Apple Tech Support ran all kinds of test on my new Mac Book Pro & they say its not a Virus. My computer is 3 weeks old. I contacted ESET the best Antivirus Co they checked say no Virus. Computer is working fine. Its FB problem. I still have this strange fbstatic-a.akamidhd.net. Tried contacting Face Book no response. FB do not have phone support. I have sent a message to the FB Tech Support. Wonderful. Every time I go to upload it takes me to this site. The problem I have no one sees it as a problem some of my files look FOGGY CLOUDY I can’t delete it or open them.. This tells me for sure some one else has control over some of my Pictures. This happened to me last year when my PC was hacked. So the best cure is to wipe it out completely clean & reinstall all operating Sy’s & programs like Adobe & other software. Its a lot of trouble& time. FB should respond to this problem or may be they think its ok or may be they don’t know & think this is the best way to upload pictures. I am a pro ready to Deactivate FB??? If no response. Here are the two phone no’s 1-800-470-8613. 1-650-543-4800. You can leave a message & see. FB Stock is at $71.00 now.
