    Exclamation Watch what you click

    I got an email from someone earlier today asking whether I was really selling a 3-letter .com that was listed for sale on a blog (with a link to the blog).

    I did a search of the email userid, and found matches on hacking related sites, so that raised a red flag immediately. I think many folks might just click the link, so watch out for that. If you do want to check what was posted, one can run something like VMWare with an oddball operating system and browser, and view the link from the safety of that virtual machine.

    wow these are getting more and more common, and to be honest I might have jumped on the link too so I should be on my guard from now on..
