For some strange reason I don't feel inclined to trust a heretofore unknown (to me at least) Chinese company to test whether I'm vulnerable to being exploited or not. :wink: :whistle:

Basically It boils down to " lets go to some unknown untrusted Chinese site and click a link" since when is that safe?



Probably why Kaspersky blocked the site on a Windows install, didn't try with any others than Linspire, the risk of infection too great to take the chance. :)
