The link is to the news that Andrew Strauss will take no further part in the Ashes series due to his young wife having cancer.

There is nothing in the least dodgy with the link.

Sometimes if security settings are too tight it can kick off verious annoyances such as login wobblies, site cert out of date, dislike of Google short urls, advertising links stuffed so the site won't play ... and so on. Any malware which haas managed to install itself can cause this prpoblem too.

The only 100% fix for malware is malwarebytes.
