[CT Birds] All Clear on Virus Alert

I contacted the site where the pictures where hosted.  The warning messages were being triggered by the entire site, not just the Snipe images.  I have heard back from them and they tell me that they fixed the problem.  I have visited it again without raising any warning flags.

(Those are some nice pictures!)

So I think this problem is closed.

Be careful out there.

This morning we had a post by Robert DeCandido with links to Snipe pictures by Deborah Allen.

DO NOT FOLLOW THOSE LINKS!  Both Don Morgan's AVG anti-virus and my NOD-32 anti-virus blocked it, but you might not be so lucky!

Thanks to Don Morgan for first alerting everyone to this danger.

Be careful out there.  Keeping good security software running and up to date on all your computers is step 1.

Good luck everyone.
