Having a problem, no matter what browser i use (safari,firefox,opera all latest versions osx 10.5.5) if i try to go to digg.com I get redirected to the dreaded
xpsecuritycenter. Tried downloading avast but found nothing. Found Hosts files looks like this.
GNU nano 2.0.1 File: /private/etc/hosts

##
# Host Database
#
# localhost is used to configure the loopback interface
# when the system is booting. Do not change this entry.
##
127.0.0.1 localhost
255.255.255.255 broadcasthost
::1 localhost
fe80::1%lo0 localhost
