While researching "code injection" at Wikipedia, my firewall reported that indeed my machine had become
infected with the "Unix.Penguin" threat, which is itself a code injection type of threat. Very funny
some hacker did this to Wikipedia.
I don't get any threat when going to that page. It was probably a coincidental
attack from elsewhere that you assumed was connected to Wikipedia because of the
page you were reading. If you have any evidence to the contrary, please share.
Interesting - I clicked on the link 3 times and was "infected" 3 times.
The page *talks about* code injection, and the code examples might be triggering false
positives in some firewall or virus protection software. Please report this false positive to the
author/vendor of your software.
I wondered if that may be the case - thanks for the feedback. PS - nice tool this Wikipedia!
