Default Redirecting to unknown site on first connection

So I noticed the past two times I went to clublexus.com, it actually sent me to http://msncoll.com/ advertising I could be the next $1000 winner. This is extremely fishy and I can't see it being an official sponsor for clublexus.com. I'm using Google Chrome if that helps but I thought it was very fishy I'm being re-directed. My anti-virus doesn't go off when it pops up though so seems harmless. Is anybody else getting it?

Like Dave said, we're looking into the issue, but will need a bit more information. Please try opening clublexus.com in a new private browsing/incognito session. Are you still being redirected or does the page load as it normally should?

If you're still being redirected, please check your anti-virus program to see if it flagged any suspicious activity. Please let me know what it finds, if anything.

Lastly, please also tell me if you are on a PC or Mac, as well as which browser(s) you have experienced the issue in.

Thanks!

Does the redirect also happen when using Chrome's Incognito mode and/or IE 11's InPrivate Browsing mode?

Hey Jason, I'm on a PC running Windows 7 and used Google Chrome. I tried opening it in incognito and it didn't happen again but also may be because I just opened it on regular mode. I will try again with incognito first and see what happens!

Good to hear you guys are on it.

It was, but we believe it was an isolated incident unrelated to this issue. We regained control of the page this past Thursday.

It's still happening and it happens not on the initial connection to clublexus but when I click on forums it'll re-direct. This time it re-directed me here:

http://pcupgradenow.com/su/en/1/23cc...ter&b=7d97708c

Disguised as a software updater, saying I need to install and update. I don't think it happens in incognito mode but problem still persists in regular surf mode.

Thanks, Mesca. When you're redirected, does any of the forum load before the redirect happens? For example, do you see the Club Lexus logo/header at all? Would you be able to take a screenshot of what the CL page looks like before it redirects?
