Hi there, this is my first post so please bear with me.

I keep getting the altfarm.mediaplex.com when I try clicking a link from the ebay home page, usually anything to do with cars. Other links seem fine so I`m wondering what this is about.

A bit of googling brings up a few different forums suggesting it`s a hijack or ebay`s association with a known malware company.

Is there an easy fix for this as I get this both in Firefox and IE 7

Thanks in advance

a solution is outlined in e-bays forum click here which involves the hosts file on your pc.

Or you could just add altfarm.mediaplex.com to the Adblocker in Firefox > Tools
