I just got news that the Texas Rainmaker blog has been hacked. I’ve linked up to him here in the past, but I won’t in this post, because the site has an embedded virus. Jason’s asked that people not visit his site until he’s given the all clear – I’m sure he’ll send an email when it’s safe to go back.
Can someone explain to me what an embedded virus does to the computer of someone who visits a site with an embedded virus? I did visit Jason’s site and noticed what happened (didn’t click on anything), so I hope my computer doesn’t have any type of virus.
Update: Jason’s site is now back up and running. Yay!
