Blog Archive Fix

A visitor alerted me that McAfee antivirus software got all excited when he or she attempted to visit the November 2004 archive of this web log. The problem was that I was showing in plain text (not an active link) two examples of how phishers trick unpatched IE/Windows browsers into displaying the wrong URL in the Address field. I have replaced the two text examples with images (again, no active links) so you can still see what to be on the lookout for—done so in a way that antivirus software should be cool with.

Thank you to the anonymous reporter.

I'm actually quite glad that there is antivirus software looking out for users while they're on the Web. Norton for Mac OS X doesn't seem to care. Hmmm.
