    Good post GBL.

    I couldn't be bothered reading the whole article but from what I gather, just stick to reputable sites and you should be fine.

    Whilst the information about hackers and web sites used in disguise is not a new news it is still one to be aware off. I personally, use both IE and Firefox browsers and use netcraft tool bar as well as its very valuable.
