    Tried to get a nasty from a www & got automatically redirected to Google.

    Lots of other nasty www's did NOT redirect me, even though i got 404's etc. So is it my ISP or ? that's doing it ?

    TIA

    From my experience it's a common thing for the malicious site itself to redirect you after X amount of time of the site being online, or redirecting random people in order to avoid detection. There is a specific name for this technique which I forget.
