Thanks for posting here. I appreciate you helping us track this down! We made a number of adjustments yesterday and perhaps that cleared things up.

I'm using Chrome and I'm in Mayo, Quebec, Canada. I do have virus protection software in place. I haven't had any redirected pages as of today but if I do get one I will do a screen capture and send it along as requested.

When you don't know what you want it's probably time to begin enjoying what you have.

Ewww! No, I haven't been getting those. Only the one asking to update Java (over and over again!!!) along with a lot of tag along programs to promote advertising.

I am who I chose to be. Stronger. Leaner. Further. Fierce.

It's about taking my power back.

Whether you think you can or you can't, you're right.

I am on the PC all the time also but if I'm correct, the recent problems or questionable ads only start-up in evening/night hours. Last night around 11:30pm MST was horrible! Red screen of death and lots of sex based ads.

So I'll have to note the times when I get those pop ups; I'm on the computer at all hours of the day and night LOL!

SEAWAVE are you getting these problems right now? If so then that blows my theory out of the water. My issues seem to occur in the evening/night hours.
I'm also in Canada (Alberta) and I think a lot of others having issues are also Canadian.
SP is working on a resolution
When I get the red screen I can just go back to get back to SP but if the same ad comes on the I get the same problem.
I'd suggest running the ESET Online Scanner to check to see if anything loaded, but as mentioned, several people have been affected by this issue so a virus is unlikely unless you downloaded the link that popped up.

I keep getting the Java update request as well, and it has a lot of add on programs for automatically linking to advertising. I'm in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. I will attempt to get a screen shot next time I get the message, but usually nothing else works and my only choice is to click on ok or close the page.

We are investigating reports of this and are actively working on the issue. Can you tell me what browser you are using, as well as your geographical location (city or country only)? Also do you have any virus software in place? If you are able to send a screenshot to adreport@sparkpeople.com the next time it happens, it would greatly help in diagnosing your particular issue. Thanks so much!

When I've used my nutrition tracker or fitness tracker over the last few days a page has popped up indicating I need to "update my Flash player". Well, my hubby is a software guy and he said it looked suspicious and suggested that Spark has been hacked.
Most recently I got a page saying there was a proxy server error. I copied the link for you.

http://www.autopartswarehousei.com/CA/?s1=g3BuAM.CMACJfHMBAAAAAJTybwAAAAAAAgAYAAYAAAAAAP8AAAABDIXoTQAAAAAAb8J4AAAAAAC1j4kAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAABllhUAAAAAAAIAAwAAgD8Awu9AY0MBAAAAAAAAADJiZGVkNzZlLTc2MjctMTFlMy05MmYyLTQ3ZTNjMDMzMDg1YQAAAAAAAAA=&s2=26109&s3=CA&s4=31214216&s5=24345737

I just brought up my fitness tracker page and after leaving that window opened for a few seconds I got transferred to another page saying I have an outdated Java Plug in. I updated Java a half hour ago. Again the page's link is:
http://www.autopartswarehousei.com/CA/?s1=g3BuANnCMACVfHMBAAAAAEYLcAAAAAAAAgAcAAYAAAAAAP8AAAABDIXoTQAAAAAAb8J4AAAAAABXrokAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAABslhUAAAAAAAIAAwAAgD8AHdVCY0MBAAAAAAAAADc1ZTQ4MmRjLTc2MjctMTFlMy1iMDE5LWRiZWEzNDViMDRhZgAAAAAAAAA=&s2=26109&s3=CA&s4=184811&s5=24345749
