oh the irony...

July 14th, 2006 by Pete


I got an email the other night from Nik about my post "Mary Ann speaks - on security testing rules". In his email he told me that if you follow the links in Mary Ann's post to the link "excellent quotes about the US marines" - "http://millennium.fortunecity.com/redwood/352/usmc4.htm" you are hit by a popup that prompts you to install ErrorSafe which is classed as syware - "http://www.symantec.com/avcenter/venc/data/errorsafe.html" - and as Nik said "oh the irony...."

I followed the link myself and I was not hit by the popup. This could be my firewall, IE settings or .... but Nik got it so beware.
