LXer: My Linux Box is INFECTED!

Published at LXer:

And please...don't tell me "that's what you get for allowing Javascript to run in my browser." I refuse to be intimidated into crippling my computing experience. Extensions like no-script might take care of this but at what cost? No...we fix the problem, not amputate part of the browsing experience for expediency.

That's pretty amusing. I wonder if users of Firefox 3 can view that or if the anti-phishing thingie blocks the page. I'm using Firefox 2 still.

Hah, I like how it displays "Computer OS: Linux" (presumably from the browser UA) and then still scans all the .dll's and .exe's

I'm using FF3 and it's not blocked by the anti-phishing thing.
