    Is anyone getting “spawned” when visiting LI?

    A reader has complained that links produce multiple “spawned” pages.

    I’ve never had the problem, and our site is clean of viruses as far as we can determine.

    Is anyone else having this problem?

    No problem here in NC with my Mosaic browser.

    I consistently get an ad-pop-up the first time I click on an article.
    Firefox, latest version. Corp computer with McAfee antivirus.

    I don’t think the guy is meaning pop-up ads. I’ve experienced totally different pages propagated independently of whatever site I’ve accessed. At first I thought I might have clicked on an ad just before it appeared, but returning to the original page there was nothing for the “spawned” page. The spawned pages were mostly on-line dating or get rich sitting on the beach. One address had Cisco Systems in the URL, so I notified Cisco Sys which got back to me hours later and said it was a scammer in Ukraine. It’s happened a few times in last few weeks, but not in the last several days. Hasn’t happened to me on LI, though.
