I just got redirected to an antivirus site??

Of course I didn't click on accepting anything but it's annoying. Anyone know if this is an ongoing problem??

I'll run an antivirus and malware scan today.

Oh, not just me, huh? I wondered what that was all about and it wouldn't let me cancel out either. I had to shut the page and then come back to get rid of it. What's up???

It happened to me just a few minutes ago - the moment I clicked on the DS link:

Re: I just got redirected to an antivirus site??

Yup, I had it happen too - Zone Alarm caught it and stopped the redirect. Love my zone alarm. I have to say though, my DH is a computer geek (professionally - military - we're not talking hobby here) and I had him look. It IS coming from DS. There's nothing on my computer, it's clean. And I didn't have any other sites open.
