Link Mismatch?

I get the "reply to thread" e-mails but when I click the "this thread is located at" link I get an error saying "Link Mismatch Detected."

The message is:

"The link you just clicked seems to lead to another site than what the link text indicated. This is sometimes used for tracking whether you clicked the link, but it could also be a scam.

The link text indicated that the link would lead to forums.1911forum.com, but it leads to url5878.vsobr.com."

I am given a choice of three click-boxes:

[Go to forums.1911forum.com] [Go to url5878.vsobr.com anyway] [Cancel]

What is url5878.vsobr.com? Is it a site mirror? Is it safe?

Safe. We switched to a new email routing system, and that's the root part of their link redirecting system.

Okay, thanks. It appears that the new version of Firefox, or maybe Malwarebytes, is now picking this up. In fact, I just saw something similar when I clicked on a link in the Turnbull Restorations e-mail newsletter so it must be becoming more common.

Might be worth a notice to members, along the lines of "If you see..."
