When clicking their bookmark for Gutterzombie lately, is anyone getting the occasional redirect to some streaming movie URL with "rr.nu" in the suffix? Or is my porn habit starting to affect "normal" web browsing?

Your browser's been hijacked, dude.

What protection do you have installed?

Whatever antivirus you may have, it may be compromised.

Put this on a flash drive from another computer and see if you can run it in safe mode:

http://housecall.trendmicro.com/

It's a portable, free antivirus that I've been using for at least ten years in a pinch.

After it's run, get rid of it. Get something else for proper, ongoing protection.

While Norton Antivirus is the lowest garbage on the market, Symantec's corporate version, Endpoint Protection, is the the best on the market. Go figure.

Of course, I'm assuming you're on Windows because I figure this isn't so common on Mac?

Nope, it's a Mac, but I'll look for some anti-virus, thanks!

Aw, hell.

Lifehacker might talk about something: http://blog.lifehacker.com/

I haven't been keeping an eye out for that.

Sorry I couldn't help more, man. :/

I'm having the same issue and it's only on this site that it happens. It seems to hijack the java applet cause you can go into Activity Monitor and quit the process.

Ditto. I haven't encountered it elsewhere. Yet? I checked my cookies, and there's some corresponding ones to "rr.nu". Deleted them, but I'm sure that's not the only thing I need to scrub. Will look into antivirus!

It's the forum. Just browsed to here with my Android phone and got that same redirect. I haven't tried pulling this up on my phone in ages. So two different browsers and platforms with the same problem on the same site.

I'm not getting this on Firefox, using Google's DNS servers.

Could this have something to do with the DNS-redirector-thing the FBI had been talking about recently?

you seem to only get it once per session, or per day or something. I see it once when i load up gz then not again for some time.

Are you guys all just using your ISPs' DNS servers?

If it only happens once, maybe it's an external thing trying to redirect you, but your system builds the correct path along the way and keeps it in-memory until you reboot or something?
