    I got an email today complaining about a fraudulent page on my MU.. looking at the web server through ftp I see no page there, so I am wondering if this site has been hacked or was it just handling 500 errors wrong..

    the link was -

    I guess it caused a 500 internal server error somehow, and firefox sprung a warning possible spoof message.

    I have now created a custom 500 error page and directed that to another server which seems to make the problem go away.. I think... is this normal?

    I saved a temporary screenshot of the error page if anyone wants to see it..

    Yes, normal. If one of your bloggers posted a bad link (bad as in malformed) it would do that.
