Being cautious with web links



Once upon a time the bad payload of a malicious email was it’s attachment, that still happens, but in many cases the links are the real lure – like a worm dangled in the water in front of a hungry fish…. the links though hide a danger on the other side…. the hook in our analogy. Brian Krebs writes about a utility called linkscanner that scans a given link to see if it’s hosting up malware. It’s from a place called Exploit Prevention Labs. I don’t know that I’d trust it completely as a safety net, but it might be worthwhile as another level in the defences.
