Ahhh ok the main site, fixing it now.

Hopefully nobody uses it (somewhat out of date!)

Thanks for bringing it to my attention Chas.

Thanks for sorting it Paul. The Google block was worrying and very effective. All seems ok now.

Just before this thread vanishes into the mist of time (and/or raki) .....

CNET Security News article

A couple of thought came as I read it:

1. I'm glad I use Firefox rather than Internet Explorer (I also have NoScript for extra safety).

2.  It's a grade one pain if you have been infected - full system rebuild to get rid! .... Even more relived I use Firefox.

Thanks for that info Chas, much appreciated, (thumbs up emoticon)  I guess enabling NoScript means no more emoticons   .......sad face

Ach well ...security takes priority.

BTW  I noticed it not only targets IE users but also Google searchers !
I use NoScript but can use emoticons    - there's lots of permissions you can set

You can set each individual script-source on each webpage as "allow temporarily" or "allow permanently" .... there should be a NoScript toolbar at the bottom of the screen with a button labelled "Options" on the right-hand end.  Any new scripts are blocked by default; YOU decide exactly which and what to allow.

Once a site has been permanently allowed, the toolbar disappears until a new script arrives.  That level of paranoia suits me fine.
