The SBC companies care about your Internet safety. Since even
familiar links can be used to misdirect and defraud, consumers should
guard against clicking directly on hyperlinks. To be sure you're
being directed appropriately, always copy and paste the URL into your
browser. Learn more about ensuring a safe Internet experience at I found this info in a reply from my phone company where I had Yahoo IP in conjunction with phone service, I suspected Yahoo IP of being weak on security so opted out. I have IPS now which is simple and lets me control my PC. But, I noticed the safety info up there and was surprised to learn of this posible security risk.

Good info Clod, I'll make sure I tell the kids.

AOL disables our ablility to click on hyperlinks. We have to choose to be able to click on them not just in preferences, but every time we sign on. From now on I will not allow the hyperlinks.

CERT issued a security alert Friday about the following browsers:

Mozilla web browser, email and newsgroup client
Firefox web browser
Thunderbird email client

There six security issues that allows arbitrary code to be executed on them using rights that the current logged-in user has. These are significant security issues and should be patched/updated asap.
