    you really are stupid if you think anyone in their right mind would open an attachment from a public group.

    Is there no limit to the lowlife on the Internet?

    What are you talking about? He put up a link to his (or her) website
    review of Scarface. How is that unusual?

    On the message I saw, it was an unrecognized attachment.

    Somewhere around 3 Oct 2003 21:37:11 -0500, Master Bird was brave
    enough to write:

    Check your settings . I saw a link and an attachment with my default
    browser icon ,which I would assume was the whole web page in question.
    I have same newsreader as you btw. Me thinks that it looks normal to
    OE users.

    A cop once pulled me over for going to wrong way down a one-way street and he said,
    'didn't you see the arrow?' I replied,
    'No, I didn't even see the Indians'.

    It cost me a traffic fine but it was worth it!

    The message was posted in HTML, which certainly is not a polite format
    for a newsgroup. However, there is no attachment:

    <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN">
    <HTML><HEAD>
    <META http-equiv=3DContent-Type content=3D"text/html; =

    You are still well justified in being suspicious of that post. There
    have been instances on this newsgroup where pranksters and spammers have
    made HTML posts which automatically go to websites, create pop ups and
    run malicious prank programs.

    The most recent of these pranks came from TGOS:

    The first TGOS post was HTML and had a JavaScript program designed to
    run a little pop-up message saying:

    "** WARNING ** VirusScan has detected the TGOS virus on your hard drive.
    If you have recently opened an email or newsgroup message and see this
    alert your system is infected." Internet Explorer would hang and could
    only be closed by hitting CTRL + ALT + DEL and then selecting End Task.

    The second post opened an Internet Explorer window and went to:

    window.open("http://www.tgos.org/world-of-tgos.html")

    A third message didn't appear to have any scripting, but a little batch
    file still crashed Outlook Express. It will takes more than a killfile
    to eliminate these risks.

    So far, these TGOS messages have all come from ntlworld.com and have
    been relatively benign in that there was no harm done to the computers
    that ran them. However, other such script programs are not so harmless
    in that they can contain destructive elements.

    Therefore, it is imperative that all ActiveX, Scripting and Java be set
    to "prompt" -- at the very least -- in the Restricted Sites section of
    the Security settings, as a bare minimum protection level.
