    Default Malicious link?

    I've seen this in my untangle box log, where several users are consistently accessing this link:

    http://guide.untangle.com/bp/get-sta...?&c=1353917498

    Initially i thought they were browsing in the untangle site, but when I looked at the site personally, it's not even an untangle site

    Anyone have experienced this? Or does untangle know about this? If this is a malware site then I would assume that the untangle domain name is being used for nefarious activities.

    I would really appreciate your feedback on this matter.

    Thank you in advance.

    It's the ads on the free version of Untangle's block page.

    Was just wondering if its an ad, then why is the page broken?

    Or is the user automatically being redirected to that site?

    Or is the forced to browse in that site?

    Or what?

    That url is requested when a block page is generated. The users aren't browsing there, their browser is simply pulling the data from that php script when it renders the block page.
