    Aside from the image it loaded being grainy I'd have to agree with you.

    I didn't notice the graininess on my side this morning, but maybe I didn't look hard enough.

    Googling said username shows that he's been showing up all day on vBulletin forums posting seemingly normal stuff with his script embedded afterwards. Not even a bot, some dude took the time to register for all these forums months ago to post this stuff today. The wonderful world of malware...

    I sent his information to my cousin who works for the FBI... See where it goes from there.

    Any way to prevent users from embedding javascript in their posts to prevent stuff like this or does it take away too much core functionality like embedding youtube videos?

    I'm working on a fix for it right now that calls the FireFox blacklist and prevents those URLs from being entered.
