is this site installing malware July 23, 2006 10:28 AM   Subscribe

Clicking the link in this post takes me to a site that repeatedly tries to download a .wmf file onto my computer, and is setting off anti-virus alarms for other members.

Gifs. We must have gifs.

Also, the folks who hit the site and didn't get any warnings need to tighten their security settings.

I'm hoping the trojan was launched via javascript nastiness and that noscript had blocked it, as I didn't get any warning. Running a scan anyway, just to be safe-like.
