There's a first

I just fell for a phishing attempt.

Luckily it was just myspace. Also, I caught it within 20 seconds.

However, looking at how the attack was constructed, I'm disappointed in myspace's security. One of the things we did at Expedia was to strip all HTML from input, except for a couple of very innocuous cases. In other words, a default no. It looks like Myspace tries to allow HTML except things they know are dangerous. A default yes. The latter is far less secure.

Buncha amateurs at Myspace I tell you.

There's a first for everything. I once got a virus on an old computer of mine. Once. Now I've been phished.

    I don't plan to delete my LJ (I paid for permanent status, dammit), but this will be the last post. I don't plan to read it anymore, either…

    Turns out my insurance is cut off at midnight tonight, not the end of the month. In a way, that's a good thing. Now I'll move my appointment…

    A week off, but tomorrow I head to the home office for a week there.
