    Default Suspect Yahoo Search Return

    C3,

    I did a Yahoo search on Tweleve and came up with a very suspect return. The second item was for

    Tweleve Website
    tweleve.org/upload/secret.rename_to_zip_please - 526k

    The actual file is 61.3 MB.

    I've downloaded this file, but when I 'search' for it where I stored it, no results show. Do you have any info on what is happening here? It smacks of a threat.

    Thanks.

    You mean from here? It's the hi-res scans from The Secret. I downloaded it and it showed up just fine for me.

    Molnar,

    Thanks for the reply - This may be what I came across. The file size of the 'hi res scans and verses link' provided in C3's post is the same size (61.3 megs). However I did not get it to show up for me (and haven't tried again), and I suspected this was malicious. To err on the side of caution, I'm still wary and will avoid the link I provided in my first post. If I encounter anything negative, I'll post again here.

    It was late, and I didn't explain myself very clearly. The file from the Yahoo link and that from the link I posted from Tweleve *are* the same file. I even downloaded both and did a binary compare. The file size on Yahoo is likely incorrect because it doesn't recognize the file extension. Your inability to find the file might have the same cause; my files showed up where I downloaded them, but I can see file extensions in my OS's.

    I'm feeling more comfortable here - That additional info is helpful. Thanks again for looking into it.
