Recently I was visiting a web site that was is hosted in China (I can tell by the IP, it's assigned to an University over there).
When I accessed their page today, it loaded but after the initial content was loaded, I was redirected to a Pokemon/Mario Bros weird page. Anyway, I was surprised. I've used Wireshark and I could see that upon the GET request and Server was sending an HTTP 302 "Moved Temporarily". I did connect then through an Internet proxy to see whether it's linked in some way to my IP. And surprise, I was able to connect without any redirection. Now I'm wondering, did they discover that I was connecting from outside China (Central Europe) and did a redirect based on my IP in Apache? Or is the site infected by some malware? If the later, How could I check the URL in a say sandbox for malicious code? Would a proxy, prevent a redirect?
