Easybm[.com] or Diarrhea Unlimited[.toilet]?

NOTE: My advice: Do not, not, not visit the EasyBM site. Just in case my bloviating is less than clear on that point. It looks to have more creepy-crawlies than Madonna’s coochie§.(Well, maybe not that many. But still quite a few.) >>>This is a rant, NOT an endorsement.<<<

Glad I’ve got this pile o’ garbage blog to chuck stuff that pisses me off. I’d set up an account at EasyBM b/c I liked the text based bookmarking, and blah, blah, blah. Hadn’t been there in a bit, but I figured I’d take another look and maybe start using it again. But when I went to leave the site, *ding* up pops Avast! with a malware alert. Whoa, says I. And just out of curiosity went looking to see if Avast was overreacting or if others were warning about the site. Yup, they are. (see review below)

Anyhow, I figured since I’m gonna run a full virus check when I hit the road in an hour or two anyways, I’d leave a “site review” where it says on the site to, ummm, leave a site review. So, back on the site I went. Only it wouldn’t let me post the review. Kept asking for a rating whether I gave the place 1 star or 5 stars. I was actually willing to cut the site owner some slack since before I tried to post the review I figured there was a chance his site might have been compromised w/out his knowledge. Now, let’s just say the dial’s gone from “possible, perhaps even probable” to “very unlikely” on that score. Whomever Mr. or Ms. BM are, I’d say the shit on the site is intentional. I guess there’s still a chance I’m wrong in imputing intent…but, whatever, even if I’m wrong on that one point the site has a doubleplus ungood track record with nasties.

So, what follows is the review I tried to post, a screenie of what happened when I tried, and a completely irrelevant footnote to myself…

Your site is blacklisted at:

http://domain-blacklist.e-dns.org/easybm.com

as passing on malicious software, in six different flavors.

My Avast! (free version) was also automatically triggered and listed yet another bit of nastiness:

Infection Details
URL: http://www.easybm .com/|{gzip}
Process: C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox…
Infection: HTML:Script-inf

I don’t know if you’re an innocent whose site has been compromised by outsiders (these things do happen) or doing this intentionally…the latter making you lower than pond scum in my book.

In any event, I’m outta here and won’t be back. Ever. And would advise anyone and everyone to do the same. Intentional or not, you’re running an unsafe site.

Interesting. I’m not being allowed to submit a review, whatever rating I give. from 1 to 5 stars, it doesn’t matter.I get a pop-up box to “give a rating” after already having done so. Very cute.

Observation

Whenever I want to give myself a little chuckle, I remember the most famous screech from the orifice of Susan Sonhag, followed by what it was that actually killed her.
