Sophos warning

Apparently, according to Sophos, it’s Mal/HTMLGen-A, which is just some generic placeholder thing.

The generic blocked by Safari message.

Which is a shame, they just had an interesting interview with John Romero.  Oh well when this gets sorted out, for those who are brave (lol) the link is right here.

It’s short, but an interesting read none the less.

About neozeed

What is there to tell? I’ve loved UNIX like things since I was first exposed to QNX in highschool (we had the Unisys ICONS!), and spent the better time of my teenage years trying to get my own UNIX… I should have bought Coherent in retrospect.. Anyways latched onto Linux in 1992, and then got some old BSD admin books and have been hooked on the VAX BSD & other big/ancient things since…!

  1. Yep (but it works fine in Lynx, of course.) That was an interesting read. Thanks for the heads-up.

  2. And the owner’s response is not “guys, we might have served you malware. sorry! please make sure to check your system as good as possible. also, our whole server might have been browsed through by the attacker. consider your accounts compromised.”

    No, it’s “It’s fixed now.” and “It’s been removed…”. Complete disregard for user safety.

    Not regretting not visiting that site regularly…
