Facebook Redirects to Myspace

My wife just came across this interesting issue.

When she goes to it redirects to a user's Samuel Garcia (SR388) profile.

Quickest resolution
For Vista and above:
is to go to your start menu -> All Programs -> Accessories. Right click on Command Prompt and click "Run as Administrator". Approve the escalation.

Copy and past the following command

ipconfig /flushdns

You should get...

Windows IP Configuration

Successfully flushed the DNS Resolver Cache.

Next clear your browsers cookie and cache... and maybe restart your browser for kicks.

I hope that helps.

FYI: I'm trying to track down why this is happening. I believe it has to do with a recently discovered DNS exploit. I'll continue to look into it.

In the mean time, if you could please reply to this post with your Internet provider and general location, city/state I would be much obliged so I can attempt to develop a pattern.
