Re: Is this website compromised?

said by redwolfe_98:

it is "funny" that, now, any time one sees java trying to run, one has to ask "has this website been compromised?"..

a better question would be "should i take a huge risk by allowing java to run?"


For sure! This is the first time I've seen an instance where the Java executable connects out to run its applet...

note that, on rich's computer, it didn't matter that the "java plugin" is not installed, for his "opera" browser..java ran anyway..


No, it didn't run in Opera - Opera displayed placeholders,which did not do anything when clicked.

Java ran in Firefox, which gave the alert.

p.s. rich, i am surprised that you are running the "old" kerio firewall.. i used it for many years but i started having problems with it, a while back.. i always thought that the problem was caused by one of MS's windows updates..


I've never had any problems with it.
