Cheat-Seeking Missles

Monday, December 03, 2007


I'm travelling and logged on remote via Golden Tree Hotel High-Speed Internet Systems from my hotel room -- and got hijacked!

No matter what address I type into my browers, or what links in my blogroll or favorites I click, I'm directed to a phoney Web site with links to some crappy service or another. I was able to skirt this attack by using my Verizon internet card, but it's much slower, limiting what I can accomplish.

I've been on hold with Golden Tree tech support for about a half hour, so I don't think I'm the only one this happened to.

I'll give my vote to whatever prez candidate who advocates a new "hackers will be shot on sight" law.
