Ouch.   I'll download Chrome and test this myself.  I'm not familiar with this server mentioned.  It might be part of our ad package system?  I'll check into it though. 

Thanks for the heads up.

I have had malware put on my computer before simply by opening a page with a vicious ad on it, so it's not out of the realm of possibility for malware to be put on your computer without actually clicking on an ad.

I use Chrome and haven't gotten this warning, but I'll check it out too. I suspect it may be from the google ads side of things.

I have been getting redirects on here for about a week.  Only seem to on this website.  Using Firefox.  I did have that Vista Security bug a couple weeks ago but multiple scans with various software show nothing.

Bizarre.  I'm normally a Firefox user and have never seen that.   I'm using Chrome now and I'm not seeing the warning.  Some vile ad must have slipped in and has since been culled.   Let us know if you see it again please.  Snapshot if you could?

Will do.  The last redirect was this morning.  It seems random but only happens when in the forums.

I added adblock to chrome so haven't run across it since.  I will disable it and see if the ad comes up in rotation again.  I never got more than a moment's notice before chrome stepped in and blocked it so I am not sure which ad was up.

This is an important distinction I wish I would have known before now. I am almost certain it is Adsense now.

Just happened again when trying to click PCgames tab on the forum list.  It eventually redirected me to Validclick.net but it quickly jumped through about 4 other URL's one of which was click3.net.  The Orgin BF3 ad was at the top.  Rapidly hitting the back key will eventually get me back to GT.  I then clicked this forum tab and it sent me to : http://gamingtrend.com/forums/intertidalimprudent.php where you get the we can't fin this page hamster.  I'm still not totally convinced it's not something on my end but i can't seem to find anything.

Definitely some weirdness with that URL.  Clicking on it made my computer burn a few cycles (not sure why... hopefully not bad) and a google brings up some suspicious results:  https://www.google.com/search?sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8&q=intertidalimprudent.php
