Okay, so, I've never had a problem with macrumors.com, and I still don't when I'm on my Mac.

But when I'm at work, I'm getting redirected to a suspicious site and my work firewall is blocking it right there. Has anyone else seen this? It just started happening in the past few days... I'm used to going to MR over lunch at work (how else am I supposed to function?!?).

This is the link I'm getting redirected to, that is getting blocked by the firewall:

Are you sure you don't have any malware or anything weird on your work computer?

googling "ampnetwork.net redirect", it seems like it may be malware.

Okay, so I tried Firefox, and guess what, it works just fine.

I'm guessing you're right Arnold. I'm going to scan my PC and see what shakes out.

Sorry for the confusion.
