I've always wondered if the next cisco/juniper 0 day will be delivered
via a set of exploits delivered via a link posted to NANOG. :) Maybe
I'll do a talk at DEFCON next year about that.

more likely a 'shortened' url.  how anyone can click those is beyond me.

http://tinyurl.com/preview.php - at least these guys understand some of the
issues involved.  At the cost of setting a preference cookie, clicking on one of
their shortened URLs will take you to a page that says where it's going to take
you.  Of course, after that, you *still* have to ask yourself how safe it is to
click on that computerworld.com link. ;)

(For the record, computerworld.com links usually seem to be safe for your
computer - like most trade journals,  most of their danger is how many IQ
points you lose reading the article :)
