Invalid URL: Potential fishing attack Referrer

Some Javascript weirdness going on today, only when logged in.

For example, this forum is getting redirected to:

Code:
http://slickdeals.net/g00//g00//forums/forumdisplay.php?f=5
and shows the following text

Code:
Invalid URL: Potential fishing attack Referrer: http://slickdeals.net/g00//forums/forumdisplay.php?f=5 - Input: /g00//g00//forums/forumdisplay.php?f=5 - Target: http://slickdeals.net/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=5
Disabling Javascript allowed me to get here to post.

Can you please fix?

Logging out and back in fixed it for me.

Wow .. I had this earlier too and thought my browser was infected. Had to run some active scans. Looks if the URI is '/g00//g00' for slickdeals, that's what returns.
