How weird is not this?

Today I did a search with “yahoo” for wilderssecurity (a forum I check not too often).
But I noticed a quick redirect when clicking the link the url was:;_ylu=X3oDMTByNGxmazk4BHNlYwNzcgRwb3MDMQRjb2xvA2lyZAR2dGlkAw--/SIG=11j12icha/EXP=1232402332/**http%3A// <------- (link not complete use copy paste)

Could this be some form of man in the middle attack?

Or is this perfectly normal with yahoo links? I really don’t see the point of clicking first from then to;_ylu=X3oDMTByNGxmazk4BHNlYwNzcgRwb3MDMQRjb2xvA2lyZAR2dGlkAw--/SIG=11j12icha/EXP=1232402332/**http%3A// and then get to wilders…

Perhaps the first URL is registering where you are going against what you searched for (it’s still yahoo)… not so weird for a search biz maybe?

Ah thats probably right, they want to know what users clicked and so on to improve the search.
I understand now… thanks!
