Are you using any type of virus program on your Mac?

I'm on a Mac, using Firefox browser but also running Avast (free) virus program. It's Avast that's flagging the problem.

May very well be one of those virus' that doesn't affect Mac's so the MacKeeper doesn't flag it (not sure as I have no experience w/ MacKeeper) but that doesn't mean the site doesn't have a virus. Personally, with this many people running this verity of OS/Virus Protection flagging it as a site with a problem I would assume there is a problem until it's proved otherwise.

R,
What you may want to do is to run Spybot on your system to clean out what I would guess is some malware (not quite the same as a virus, but close enough). Spybot can be downloaded free (just google it) and does an excellent job of catching such stuff. If you decide to do that, then I'll give you two tips. (a) Run it as administrator -- right click on it rather than just clicking on it, and then choose the "run as administrator" option. (b) Once it is running, choose the "check for updates" first, and when that has finished then do "check for problems."

John

I have MacKeeper....It cleans all the accumulated junk out of the computer and has an "anti virus" program that finds the virus and quarantines it until I delete it. Great application!

MacKeeper

Does anyone know how to get rid of it on the hosting server? Readyhosting, the web hosting company, is not helping at all. Blaming me and telling me I need to clean the files. I always thought that web hosting companies had a duty to do virus scan on all the files on their servers. I am ready to move to another web hosting company.

Hey Walt, You were probably logging into "adult friend finder" and got hijacked to the boat ad!

I also got redirected to the "adult friend finder" site. But when I closed the site and went back to the link, it opened up just fine.

I don't have to log into Adult Friend Finder. It's my home page when I turn the computer on.

ralphyost, Be advised that my son, who is a computer whiz, has just switched all of our computers from MSE to Bitdefender as a free anti-virus program. I have had several problems with MSE and, as stated, Bitdefender flags websites prior to entry. He also stated that Bitdefender currently ranks at the top on independent surveys, while MSE is fairly low. No interest in either, just trying to keep my computers working well!

See post #25...

I would consider that those of us that are seeing an error our systems might be detecting something that really isn't a threat but considering that some others are being redirected to a pseudo-porn site tells me that there truly is an issue.

Just my .02
