Hijacking affiliate links

I've been given a heads up that has done some excellent sleuthing and investigation into hijacked LJ affiliate links:

What is LJ doing to my links?
What is LJ doing to my links? Part 2
What is LJ doing to my links? Part 3

Expect this post to be update through the day as I find out more and come up with a good summary.

ETA: No good summary, but I feel like I should say code got taken down, etc etc, business as usual.

I'm not sure if I'm seeing the residual problems with this or not, I'm not a code jockey, but in the last month I'm having increasing problems trying to even log in. The ads and other programs that are flipping our my firewall are locking up the screen preventing me from logging in without hitting the refresh button to throw the java script off my page. It's getting VERY annoying.

It's the flash particularly with some of the ads that's causing the problems. It's worse with some ads, I think H&R block was one of them. I've turned off my flash player (easy to do on Opera) and the problem stops instantly.

yeah, the secure login page that foxfirefey linked doesn't have ads. Good luck once you're in, though.

But turning off Flash is an excellent policy :)
