    Redirect problems?

    I have two reports of the site url being redirected automatically. Is anyone having this problem?

    Yes, but only with Safari on OS X.

    It redirects to http://94.199.51.3/FlashPlayer-11-4-macos.pkg, http://adobeflashplayer.uk.to/4f/

    That downloads FlashPlayer-11-macos.pkg, and if you are allowing downloads to launch automatically, you're pwned.

    It then goes to www.google.com to cover its tracks.

    NoScript blocks attempts for the site to load hXXp:superbesttraf.orge.pl and hXXp:www.cookaround.com -- If you're allowing scripts globally, you're probably allowing those sites too. If you're not sure, watch the bottom of your screen as you load the forum and you will see those sites quickly load as well.

    Another forum member who uses Safari sent me an email.
    Said he is getting redirected to a Flash site as well.

    Tell him to use Chrome or Firefox. I haven't been able to figure out how to get Safari to work.

    I just tried reloading and a couple other addresses are flashing across the bottom of my screen.
    I use Firefox. No redirects but the other addresses showed for a fraction of a second at the bottom of my page.

    I just tried this and got the same thing. I'm using Chrome which is blocking it but none the less it looks like we have a problems. Stinking hackers.

    Both of my Macs won't properly direct to KKF. I am on an ancient PC right now. My redirects end up at Google, so I assumed it was the Google Redirect Virus. Maybe a file in one of the threads is spreading that virus?
