So I've been reading ZeroHedge for a while now, and they have been fairly up to date on the current affairs on the whole US debt issue.

So I went to the site a few minutes ago to check out what the latest news is, only to find the site.. gone.

Zero Hedge Website

I get redirected to a site that shows up like this.

www.iana.org...

I'm not sure whats up, but seems rather odd. The site was working rather well around 2am MST, the last time i looked at it.

Not sure if the owner of ZH forgot to pay the bill, or something more bizarre happened.

Not sure where to look for details either.

Anyone know anything?

Could you have "installed" some malware accidentally that's redirecting your browser to pages of it's choosing?

1 .. ping the site, see if you get a reply

2 .. enter the ip directly into the browser to exclude a DNS problem

3 .. if that works, flush your DNS cache according to the OS you use

4 .. if it still doesn't load fine, then, try an open DNS provider instead using the DNS service of your ISP

I'm using Google's DNS ( IPv4 = 8.8.8.8 ) and the site loads just fine for me.

You also might want to check the results with nslookup

-------------------snip-----------------
nslookup zerohedge.com
Server: 8.8.8.8
Address: 8.8.8.8#53

Non-authoritative answer:
Name: zerohedge.com
Address: 188.126.66.68

-------------------snip-----------------

So you might wanna try putting 188.126.66.68 into your browser to access the site.

OK problem solved..

Evil malware had somehow made it's way onto the system..

I checked my Programs and applications under control panel and yanked a few "toolbars" and "mywebsearch".

I also am a fond user of Malwarebytes anti-Malware. Which, I had grown too lax on running weekly.

For those that are interested.. It's a free version and a Pay version. Free version doesn't have some options available, but will allow you to scan your system.

Malwarebytes Anti-Malware

Hmm, Now to find out how to switch the DNS servers around.. hmm..
