I’m just starting to learn about Arduino, and I went to the “playground” web page. I found some links there which caused my browser to display “congratulations, you just won $1000”. I had to shut down my browser to close that page.
I wanted to report this problem. But I had to register in your forums to do that. Now I’ve done that, but I can’t post the links in question because
“this is your first post”.
The page is arduino.cc | playground| Main| ManualsAndCurriculum.
The links are in the section “Arduino Website on PDF” There are three links. The first is titled “Getting Started Section - download here”. The link there is benign but it’s to an acrobat dot com site, the PDF file is locked such that it can’t be saved locally.
The second is titled “Learning Section - download here” The link is to
a mediafire dot com site which returned that “$1000” window.
The third is titled “Reference Section - download here” a similar mediafire link.
Let me know if this is the appropriate forum to report these sorts of problems. I saw nothing obvious on the Web page about reporting “misbehaving” Web pages. I went to this much trouble to report at al, because I run a site myself and would greatly appreciate such reports.
