Super User is a question and answer site for computer enthusiasts and power users. It's 100% free, no registration required.

In my browser (Firefox 10.0.7) the page is automatically redirect to some other sites without clicking any link. If I enter the superuser.com url after pressing Enter button, It redirect to some other sites. sometimes while refreshing also the page is redirect to some other site.

It's redirecting to this sites

Sounds like a virus or malware. I would run an AV style program and a malware program to ensure your machine is clean! –  Dave Rook Sep 7 '12 at 8:28
    
what is the procedure to check system is clean? suppose if it is a windows system then I can use any anti virus, but it is Linux system so what should I do now? –  max Sep 7 '12 at 8:41
    
Did you tried reinstalling ? Does the problem occurs in other browser also ? –  Lamb Sep 7 '12 at 9:04
    
ok then I will reinstall the browser. –  max Sep 7 '12 at 9:14
    
Does the superuser page show up and is then redirected or are you pushed directly at the other sites? There's a pretty good possibility that you either have a rogue AddOn (restart Firefox without AddOns), or your DNS/Network settings are poisoned (you're not running the GUI as root, are you?). –  Bobby Sep 7 '12 at 9:47
