    Dont know how long this is going to last but I thought it was very weird.

    When I enter www.facebook.com in my browser I'm redirected to myspace...some kind of hack?

    Any way check it out, I'm wondering if it its happening to everyone every where.

    I did a little googling apparently its a single computer issue (I just assumed that it had a wider effect my bad).

    The fix (if your on a pc running vista) is to.

    1. Run command prompt as an admin
    2. Type command ipconfig /flushdns
    3. Restart browser

    It should work

    Yep. A hijacked DNS record will do that. Twitter kept getting redirected for me. Must be some kind of malware.. I can't wait to switch to OSX.
