Beginning at around 3pm EST today, visitors to my site using a Safari browser have sporadically been redirected to [google.com....]

After quite a bit of digging, I've discovered that they're actually being directed to this link, which then directs them to Google:


The XXX denotes random codes.

I can't find any links or ad networks that refer to xmladvert or freedirectoryguide, and as far as I can tell this only affects Safari.

xmladvert.com has to be related to an ad network, but I can't figure out who. The WHOIS info is protected, and the site doesn't bring up anything.

Anyone else have this problem? Or, any suggestions on figuring out which ad network is responsible so I can disable them?
