    Hmm, back in the Win31 days when I was using a dumb ASCII terminal
    and a 9k6 modem to dial in to AT&T Mail and MCI Mail, I saw my share
    of HTML mail flashing by as if in a monochrome CrimsonEditor window,
    including the IFRAME tags for loading and then running the Romeo
    and Juliet executables that made up the Romeo&Juliet virus.

    Or had the Win95 era already gotten started by then without me knowing it?

    That's about as helpful, these days, as
    "Look it up in the library" would have been
    100 years ago. Care to be just a *little*
    more specific?

    MD5-dennis can't be more specific.
    Because otherwise he will look even more idiotic than he does now

    He has never posted anything which would be even remotely from a viable
    MD5-attack.
    And he has never explained why distros still use MD5 to validate their
    stuff, although he is telling us left and right how "unsecure" that would
    be. Probably all those distro-maintainers know less of MD5 than our local
    MD5-specialist does...

    You could try the current one. I don't experience this.

    If this tool happened to create these problems some time
    ago, why not checking it out after a given amount of time,
    if the problem has been solved in the meantime?

    I don' t know why you want to use IE6 under Linux - Firefox works much
    better for normal users. But: You can get a virus with your
    IE-Wine-Construction, but the only thing that can happen is that your
    virtual wine-Windows is being infected.

    P.S.: Watch out, IE can still send data to Redmond^^
