Did anyone else get redirected to this site when trying to reach the JavaRanch this morning. I got up, poured my coffee and was heading to the Saloon for my morning reading when instead I was faced with a pic of Jesse Jackson and whining about the Florida vote count ( no offense meant to any Floridians !). I tried all the links in my history but got 404's only.
Paul, are you saying my machine ??? I am fairly lax with my security, but I don't have broadband and I don't have any really personal info on my machine. Although I have been online for nearly 10 years I have yet to buy anything online, so I don't really worry about cc numbers etc on my machine. But I hate to think someone has hacked my system.

No not your machine ... your local DNS Directory Naming Service. This is the service that maps the URL you type into your browser to the IP address of the site!
Pounding at a thick stone wall won't move it, sometimes, you need to step back to see the way around.
