Pages being redirected

I am getting pages redirected when I click on a forum thread. The page ends up at API downloads today. This is only happening at MMORPG.com so pretty sure it has nothing to do with my PC.

    You are not alone. Someone is up to some real shady shit is my guess. The re-direct i got was to some fake anti-virus program/virus download. That only happened on one of the instances but i have had a few pages try to re-direct to other sites. If its an issue with the website the mods i'm sure are aware and working on it.

    If its bigger than that who knows... If it gets worse ill just stay away until they address it.

    I got this too.  It started yesterday.  I had to do a system restore.

    Thought it was just me.  But, yes, Ive gotten that redirect to freedownloads also.

    It appears to be completely random which is leading me to believe there's a malicious ad being served from one of our 3rd party ad servers.  Is anyone seeing this from a specific link every time you click it?  Is it always when you click a forum thread link and does it happen directly on the click or does a portion of our page load and then the redirect occurs?  Any specific information that can be provided will help me to track down and wipe this thing out as fast as possible.

    It just randomly happens when I click on a forum post from the main page.. It never happens to the same post two times in a row.

    Main page meaning the home page or a link from within the forums area?
