Disable "Cover Over" Survey Ads!!!

So, you think you just found something really cool?
Checking out the website?

Then you see this:
cpalead gateway

You try everything. You even try doing a survey, but if its anything like my luck, it either turns out you need a phone or do another survey at the end.

Well, This is how to bypass them FOREVER!
(You will love me for this)

I have made this video showing how to do it:

    actually... it didn't work
    i can access the main site... but any links will take me to a blank page with "'); " up in the corner below the little yellow bar.

    ah... if you have adblock, noscript or similar addons, disable them. they interfere with the effect
    - SkinnyBill November 15, 2010, 10:43 am
    I don't have any adblockers running... but I do have my firefox synced on another computer and it hasn't been able to do it's thing yet. Would that have something to do with it?

    yeah... one of these doesnt work me thinks

    I cant remember which one but i think its the first one.

    also, as you use linux specifically, try typing in:
    /etc/init.d/nscd restart
    to flush the DNS cache. If it still doesnt work, please link me the page (i cant find it) and I will try and help you further :)
    - SkinnyBill March 30, 2011, 7:08 am
    Type the two IP's and url's in that file? A little confused on that part.

    And which link do you want if it doesn't work?
    - Disco March 30, 2011, 7:21 am
    yeah you typed it correctly. I assume you saved it properly?
    Try opening again to see if its still there.

    After closing the file, type in the
    sudo /etc/init.d/nscd restart
    into the TERMINAL and press enter. (not into the file)
    - SkinnyBill March 30, 2011, 7:38 am
    I did save it properly, the URL's are still in the hosts file.

    *crosses fingers*

    Hopefully this works

    urm... that line gives me an error saying, "This command can not be found" Something similar to that. The only way I can use /etc/init.d/nscd restart for anything is if I put nano between it and sudo, but it opens up a different file. Am I supposed to put the two IP addresses and URL's into THAT file?

    If it's supposed to restart my computer, then something is going wrong, cause that isn't what's happening. :(
    - Disco March 30, 2011, 7:40 am
    no. its supposed to be a command ><

    if it doesnt work, please send me the link and I will check it out :P
    - SkinnyBill March 30, 2011, 7:45 am
    a link to what?! lol
    - Disco March 30, 2011, 7:47 am
    the page you screenshotted (not the terminal, teh page with the survey on)
    - SkinnyBill March 30, 2011, 7:52 am
    It's the same page you used in your videos.

    Thank you so much! I hate those surveys!

    Now all I need is the tutorial on how to do this on mobile devices


    Depends on the device.

    If you have a jailbroken iPhone/iPod Touch/iPad, get iFile from Cydia, go to /etc/hosts and edit :)
    It may be possible to do this on Android too in a similar way.
    PS3 might be able to be done via Linux
    Wii = Most hackable console ever
    DS = idk, probably possible with R4 or another flashcard.

    Anything else?

    Pretty much any OS uses a hosts file somewhere. its part of TCP/IP i think.
    - SkinnyBill March 30, 2011, 8:17 am
    Thanks, and you must've read my mind or something because I was talking about a jailbroken IPod lol. +3 for this injection of knowledge straight into my eyeballs.
