    Weird Google malware thing

    ***PLEASE TRY THE BELOW ON A VIRTUAL MACHINE / MACHINE WITH VIRUS PROTECTION / MACHINE YOU CAN FORMAT***

    Had a weird problem just now, one of our staff was trying to get onto a website, the conference centre at lace : liverpool : merseyside : northwest

    Works fine if you type it into the address bar, but our member of staff was finding it through Google i.e.:

    conference at lace - Google Search

    If you click the link to the website on Google it goes to a malware loop!

    This problem occured on my XP virtual machine tester so it isn't local to the machine!

    I'm totally baffled

    Firefox alerted me that it was going to a suspicious site.... Didnt we have a topic a while agao about the same thing?

    it tries to go to h.....ttp://findwife.asia/unique/index.php without the extra ...'s or another random malware site.
