Might be the forum's servers, might be the registrar, might be the DNS servers people are using or it might be malware on people's systems. As for the latter, it doesn't matter how many different firewalls and AV systems are in place if people insist on clicking links in random emails and don't do regular scans etc. It can happen to anybody.

I'm getting redirected occasionally from google searches as well...

I'm on a mac using chrome v27 for what it's worth.

I've cleared my cookies and removed all search engine entries except google. It just happened again...

It's b-a-a-a-ck. Can't you just fire-bomb their office or something?

This has now happened to me on four different computers in three different locations, including my work computer, so I suspect it is not malware.

It only seems to happen to me when I do a site google search (site:stromtrooper.com). It will happen once. I just tried on a mac and a pc and I got it the first time on both. I have tried doing other site searches and have not had it happen. Only when going to stromtrooper.com.

It seems to me like the issue must be on stromtrooper.com and is related to how SEO friendly url redirects are done. The process is smart enough to not do it every time for any one session.

Just happened to me again as well.

Here is the page I was searching from:

https://www.google.com/#sclient=psy-ab&q=elka+shock+for+dl650&oq=elka+shock+for+dl650&gs_l=hp.3..0i22i30.496.4190.0.4403.20.17.0.2.2.0.230.2035.7j8j2.17.0...0.0.0..1c.1.17.psy-ab.lXBRf-a2HEc&pbx=1&bav=on.2,or.r_cp.r_qf.&bvm=bv.48705608,d.aWM&fp=e86f09c8cce34c11&biw=1308&bih=731

I clicked the first link which should have taken me here:

but I was redirected to here:

All the above says is that it's a private domain registered with GoDaddy. You would have to work with GoDaddy. The culprit may not actually have anything to do with myfileshare.com. I could hack something to redirect people to stromtrooper.com. It doesn't mean stromtrooper.com is at fault.

GoDaddy also handles Stromtrooper according to stromtrooper.com - Stromtrooper. Stromtrooper Forum : Suzuki V-Strom Motorcycle Forums
On two previous occasions, a problem has been found with this site so it isn't anyone's individual computer. I thought that would be the case early on because there was only one or two reports. With the increase in reports and previous problems found at Stromtrooper, the problem is obviously with the site.

People are getting far better at exploiting weaknesses in how people set up their sites and forums. They are pretty clever at getting your server to run PHP and if they can do that then they usually have way more privilege then you would like. I just did a quick search and found this concise summary of things to check for on the vbseo forum. It's related to a different redirect and you guys may already be doing these things.

Google redirecting to filestore123.info - vBulletin SEO Forums
