Would you? And while you are at it, the idiot that wrote this worm deserves a swift kick as well...

The second link is broken. That can't be a good sign. :)

They changed and updated the link. I'll update mine as well... Thanks for the catch.

At least for once this one doesn't require a reboot.

I like the column by the guy in E-Week who went out and installed Firefox on all his company's PC's. I did the same - I'm running Firefox now at work.
