The Fountain Pen Network Malware Saga Continues…

I know a lot of you dare not go past of the bright red and Google warnings of malware. I went ahead and did it. I work on a mac, so I feel a bit more protected than a PC user would.

For those of you who can’t see it, here is the latest update from the FPN admin:
FPN update 061110

Hopefully they get it sorted out soon. It is such a shame that some people take pleasure in doing things like this…
