Review:- Thought I received an e-mail from one of my friends, however, upon opening the e-mail, it was clearly a scam directing people to: images.indianewsreel.com. That’s not the worst of it. As I was still signed into my e-mail, all of a sudden, IE 8 BLOCKED files supposedly being downloaded to my system. Good catch IE 8. Attention all Symantec Employees: you may want to be on the lookout for this type of behaviour as it relates to e-mails. Good thing I’m not your average Hammer Bro. Many have criticised my ardent policy of keeping my “pop-up blocker” set to maximum. However, I would venture to say, that if it was not set to the maximum - - the remote attack would not have been blocked. Although I have scheduled more research to be done on this, for now, I wanted to ALERT the community as quick as possible. Interesting to note- WOT has thrown this “images.indianewsreel.com” in the RED. Norton, please re-evaluate.
