    Wazzup? Twice this a.m. when I access this site I get jumped to another wanting to perform a software upgrade. Do you guys need to fumigate? It is happening nowhere else.

    Is likely one of the adverts with something embedded to take you to another site. I have not had this happen to me yet.

    I've had this happen recently on links to another board.

    most likely a nefarious ad.

    I've been putting off the Yosemite update on my laptop. That's now been accomplished -- and quite a few other updates -- and nada for another capture like I'd had. Still hope it is rooted out.

    I've checked the server and no signs of anything bad there. Sometimes AdSense sneaks an ad in there that will do that, but it's not supposed to. I'm going to double check my settings there and tell them it happened. If you can get a screen shot and email it to me, even better! Thanks for letting me know.

    I don't have a screenshot for you, but it happens before I log in. Once I log in, it stops sending me to the weird update thing.

    Yes, when I was getting it, it was when going to this site and then having it captured by that other website.

    Yup...It seemed to do it MORE when I'd open VMB as a "New Tab". If I just type in the url and went to it that way, it seemed OK...
    I'll try and get a SS Sonya.
