    Hi all,
    I'm new to this forum, and relatively new to Mac OSX (I've been a Windows user for the last several years) But thats not the point.

    The point is, When i was browsing my gaming forum websites (like i usually do), on the average day, I will be able to go to that website and read it like any other website. But today, when I went on that site, it redirected me to "haquefoundation.eleadatabase.com/get_involved/donate/index.html" DO NOT CLICK THIS

    Its a site trying to sell me databases for "Email Mailing Lists"

    Chrome on my Mac has been trying to block the pop-ups, but occasionally, that site pops on its own.

    I have a feeling this is malware...strangely, normally when I visit my gaming forum, nothing bad happens, but today, this happens.

    What can I do to stop this?
    ClamXav says that my mac is clean. But how can it be clean if that website keeps opening by itself?

    thanks

    please help..

    Looks like that gaming forum has been hacked

    If it only happens when you visit a specific site it is most likely not malware.
