I'm pretty sure I was on https://onlineeast2.bankofamerica.com, but of
course that's just the top-level URL. I suppose some other server with a
component on the page could do the redirect.

That URL is a Juniper Netowrks VPN web client login page. Google ncui. I
use a similar setup to vpn into the office. Looks like someone turned on
gating on a server you were either connected to or got shifted to. You
did not have the credentials to pass the gate anymore [or ever probably]
and were redirected to to the login page.

 

I thought you might have taken over a session floating out in the ether,
but that was too way out there.

My gut feel is that you landed on a server that was gated, or had gating
enabled mid-session with you.
