Bad news for lavabit. Also interesting reading is the previous post: http://www.volokh.com/2013/10/11/lavabit-challenges-contempt-order/
That link redirected to malware, of course only a problem if you are at work using IE.
What? Really? Details please. That’s kind of a big deal.
The first time I opened the link, it did a fullscreen click OK to ‘do something bad’. Killed the process. I tried to recreate it to show where it redirected but it didn’t do it again. Looking at the site, I would blame the ads.
That’s kind of scary, but probably not that unusual. ad networks are pretty shady, even if they’re trying to be legit. there’s some joke/analogy to be made relating them to the classic line “having sex with someone is like having sex with all of their partners too”.
