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.

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 :)
