    Alright, so, little joke im sure everyone here knows what "rick rolling" is. I was at the library today and a buddy of mine forced the youtube link for the song into my browser window which was currently on this forum. He wont tell me how he did it. but i checked all my processes, applications were clear, and im guessing since it was an open public network that he forced it into my browser? anyone have any clue as to how he did this? Im an app developer networking isnt exactly my strong suit.

    He may have made that page as browser home page.

    That would mean either your browser is infected or the site you were seeing was infected.
