I got that when I clicked some photos that went to another site. I assumed it was related to another website.

I agree. The amount of BS that peppers the threads on this website is why I don't frequently visit here looking for information as much as I would like. Its annoying when you're trying to read a post but everytime you accidently scroll over a spam link, it opens some crappy pop up.

insightcentral's server is infected with a redirect virus. This has nothing to do with adds. Just happened again but this time a different url but still for a fake flash plugin:

Update Flash Player

I don't have any issues with the site, but I get the linked site any time I go to TPB.

What makes you think it's IC's server?

Yes, but it doesn't fix the fact that the forum is infected which it still is. It only occurs visiting this site and it does it from any pc or mac at work or home.

Sorka,

Forum is NOT infected. One of the sources of one of the ads is flagged as malicious.

What is TPB?

The roll-over links are irritating and have been a standard feature here for a long time. Paying attention and not letting your cursor touch them helps considerably. We in the IC "community" do not own this site and there is little we can do about those. I suspect that they represent a revenue stream for the owners - Autoguide.
