What is the deal with CNN.COM

Just tried to go to www.cnn.com and I am automatically directed to this site
"DELETED THE LINK AS SUGGESTED"
Anyone know what is going on?

You're not stupid.....the google linky Howie provided has some helpful tips.

I'd run some spyware - antivirus programs and see what that does. I'm sure those more PC-literate will chime in.

Are you on XP? You could always try a system-restore to a few months back.

I'm guessing that it's the SQL server exploit that's all the rage.

My computer is Business Vista, which by the way, I HATE!!!! But it was the company computer that was given to me. I am not sure if this is a computer issue or the server on which I am logged on at this moment. I am at one of the factories that provide me with production, I usually work from home 50% of the time and the rest visiting the factories that produce for me here in the region. When I get home tonite, I am going to try there and see if it is the computer or the network server here at this factory.

Will chime in later and let you know the results. If it is the computer, I am F*&^ED cause Business Vista is a piece of S&^T in my humble opinion. It is made for adults that think like 5 year olds and unfortunely, I can no longer think in that fashion.

OK, it is not my computer. It was obviously the network server at the production plant that I was at yesterday.

Thanks.

You might want to send them a note that someone has hijacked their server
