Description Franz_aRTiglio 2007-06-14 10:13:22 UTC
My friend, using the safari browser (MACosX) found a weird page, everywhere he click is redirected to a porn site; I was initially thinking to a virus/trojan because in my mozilla the problem does not happen.

By the way I noticed (firefox a wrong size of the browser's scrollbars and I investigated it.

I found this code in the page ( ): 

(to avoid problems I changed the HTML tags < > with undersores)

_p style="font-size: 50000px; left: -50px; width: 100%; position: absolute; top: -50px; height: 100%; font-color: transparent"_ _a href="" class="external autonumber" title="" rel="nofollow">[1]_/a_ _/p_

I've already fixed the page by removing the spam code.

* Clear browser cache
* Check for spyware and any other malware
* Try other web sites
* Does it occur on specific pages? Check them for hidden spam

Meh, I don't see that HTML, probably just spyware.
Comment 4 Aaron Schulz 2007-06-14 22:56:22 UTC
Wait, I see the code in and old reverted version:
Comment 5 Aaron Schulz 2007-06-14 22:59:09 UTC
OK, I'm in FF 2.0, and all that does is make a huge white box below the page content. Same with IE.

In Opera, it makes a large [1].

This is a known issue.  It can occur in some browsers depending on the exact markup used.  Look at the bug I duped this to.
