Just tried to get on phoronix and was redirected to this crap -
Edit heres one that showes the site name.
I must admit I was booted into an old setup with an out of date seamonkey, but It's only phoronix that did it, so I don't think it was anything my end as such, but as I don't normally use that partition anymore I could be wrong.
What do you think - if it wasn't me but one of Phoronixes ad "partners" that did it I think it's deceitful and unacceptable for a responsible site to be associated with such an ad - or maybe one of them has been hacked?

And again - same ad different names - I've been using this browser over the weekend and not one other site has been affected - I go on phoronix today and it happens again, after I did forums -> login -> index.

Edit: the exe is MalwareDefender2009.exe.

Since this is only happening to you, I was just wondering if you have tried another DNS server (such as openDNS)? You may be a victim of DNS hijacking.
It's possible I suppose, but it's only ever happened twice and both times Phoronix + old browser.

I'll have to remember to start a tcpdump before I go on phoronix on the few occasions I am booted into this old setup.
