URL redirect notifications are often meant to serve as security measures, but at least one malware blackhat is exploiting these services and redirecting site visitors from the website they think they are about to visit to a spyware-infested haven.

UPDATE: me.com seems to be responding albeit slowly… Hopefully Apple will have it sorted quickly. The massive impact of the millions of iPhones coming online tomorrow has not kicked in yet…
