    When I go to Amazon.co.uk, the page loads and then I get this a few seconds later. Have I been hacked? Has Amazon been hacked?

    10.5.2, Safari.

    Works fine for me too. Have you tried emptying the cache?

    That would be my suggestion as well. If that doesn't work, try resetting Safari. I had a similar problem and that solved it for me.

    Emptied cache. Rebooted. Still happening.

    Happens in Firefox too.

    Same thing is happening to me. :eek:

    Leopard 10.5.2, Safari 3.0.4. ISP Pipex, UK.

    EDIT: If you look at the bottom of the amazon.co.uk page (quickly before it vanishes), there's an advert there that seems to be causing the problem. What's going on?

    It's on Amazon's side.

    Welcome to XSS exploits.

    This is why I use Firefox and have the No Script extension installed & running.

    See attached image, taken visiting the page with Firefox with No Script running (look for the red arrow I inserted).

    Amazon have probably fixed it by now anyway. I'm surprised they didn't fix it earlier. I should think that whoever is responsible for advertising and security at Amazon.co.uk are presently getting their arses kicked.
