I would like to know if it is normal or even allowed for pictures of products on Marketplace to take you to another site since that would allow for malicious sites to affect people looking at products on Marketplace.

This person https://marketplace.secondlife.com/stores/57137 has all his pictures leading to https://d1ij7zv8zivhs3.cloudfront.net so when you click to zoom the picture it does not zoom but instead takes you to the cloudfront site.

Cloudfront is Amazon Web Services. You're not getting hacked or anything, the server is just messing up when it sends you a file. Either that or the website is malfunctioning and not using the fancy code to make the images popup, and is instead falling back to just displaying the image.

Nathan I think your issue is related to the first  and second issues mentioned here: http://community.secondlife.com/t5/Merchants/Marketplace-and-Direct-Delivery-Update/td-p/1462915

Yeah Flea i think it's gotta be the marketplace just being borked with a bunch of problems for a while so i won't worry too much about it but it did concern me that the person who's shop I was looking at was selling a known freebie desert eagle .50 for 800L$ and then the pics led to another site. I thought it's better to mention the issue here and see if it was normal.

That's quite normal. Has been always like that but it doesn't happen to all the stores. As for my store, all the images are shown within that floater window when you click them to zoom, but for some stores what you described happens.

Actually its a feature of the MP and handy too if you need to show more than the number of pictures allowed on the listing for customers to get a good look at your product, such as a house with a number of rooms.  You have to click the view more images link for it to happen though.  So don't click it if you don't want to leave the MP
