Click the link, and it tries to take you to some weird malware site (Which Google alerts you to and blocks)

BUT - Manually copy\paste or otherwise enter the URL it in the address bar, and it works just fine.


Before anyone tells me I have a virus, I'm running Linux right now, and I was made aware of the problem from someone else! (No, the site is not mine either)


How could this happen? And how is Google intercepting it anyway... :stare:

Curiouser and curiouser... the link on this page appears to work just fine for me also - but it did not while I was in preview mode before posting!


Source code from the page I found this link on (http://tech.groups.yahoo.com/group/Homebrew_PCBs/message/30540) shows nothing out of the ordinary - No tricky renamed URL hiding an alternative link. No image pretending to be text.
