Attempted Virus Attack on Safari

Tonight I was browsing through my normal websites with Safari on my Mac when suddenly, this window took over my entire browsing experience (click to go full screen on it). I either got this from macdailynews.com, macnn.com or msnbc.com. I’m not sure which. I did a force-quit on Safari and moved on with my life, but still… beware.

Quick Safari/Snow Leopard Tip

If you’re having stupid amounts of trouble with your plugins loading in Safari4 on Snow Leopard, go to your Finderand open /Applications. Right-click on the Safari app and choose “Get Info.” On that screen, you’ll see a checkboxto run the app in 32-bit mode. Check that. Restart Safari if it’s open. Now you’ll find that your plugins magically work. I guess this whole 64-bit thing has caught developers with their pants down.

I haven’t used RSSsupport in OS Xsince Safari3, so I decided to give it a new try in Safari 4.
