I just opened up in my browser a minute ago, and the front page initially came up (with a blank spot for an ad at the top) for a split second before I was redirected to a fake security site.  The URL I was redirected to is (replace the '_dot_'s with '.'s):


The page had the usual BS "tools" to download, and if I tried closing the window a fake security message came up instead.

I was using Internet Explorer version 7.0.6000.16982 running on Windows Vista Home Premium 32-bit (w/o SP1) with all Windows Updates (except SP1) installed.

This same thing happened a few months ago.  I started a thread about it then here.  This appears to be the same redirect as the last time (at least the page I was redirected to looked the same).

I know where my towel is.

Roger.  That is two of these in the last 24 hours from the other thread opened here.  I believe I know which network is sending the ad.  I am turning it off and notifying the network.  Tracking these down can be difficult.  I tried loading the pages quite a few times so that I could verify which network sent the ad, but no joy.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
    • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
