I posted in the comments of http://worsethanfailure.com/Articles/Now_Hiring_SQL_Injectors.aspx, but as comment #109 on last week's old article, I know my role. What's the proper channel for reporting a viral link in article comments? I've passed through the first 5 stages of grief and into stage 6, "warning people about the electrified water fountain". Technically, the trojan was buried in a comment in the linked-to Dice.com article from 2004, but I was very bored and very curious.
Durn me if there wasn't a tempting Marketing-bashing link that lead to a trojan at Ebaumsworld. Who can resist lynching the Marketing guys? Rightfully so, because we do meathead things like this. Anyhow, I can't find anything in the site info that provides contact info for a moderator or admin who can remove the thing.
Suggestions? (keep the words short, beyond 5 letters I'll need a dictionary)
I saw the advertisement last week, but I'll be darned if I understand what happened or what you're looking for in terms of help. Could you start again from the beginning?
In the Dice.com article, there was a link to an old Dice.com WTF. In the comments section of that page, maybe 10-20 comments down, there's a hyperlink with the words "Marketingese". http://worsethanfailure.com/Comments/Looking_to_the_Tech_Leader.aspx is the comments page, the name given is "Jeremy Morton", and apparently the filename is "retro.wmv". Corporate AV caught the thing, fortunately.
I never had to report anything, but I would probably try sending a PM to [url=http://forums.worsethanfailure.com/members/Alex+Papadimoulis.aspx]Alex_Papadimoulis[/url].
