Possible malware

A few minutes ago I composed a private message to another member. When I clicked Send, I was re-directed to one of those fake "Update your Flash Player" sites. That suggests the bad guys have injected some code into your page. Just a heads up.

I would do some cleaning on your machine, as well as be careful the sites you visit and what you click on.

A clearing of cookies and cache and possibly a check for malware is in order.

If you get it again, copy the url your page is changed to it and send it this way
