Description Duncan Harris 2007-01-04 13:54:05 UTC
I don't know but the following is mentioned in the quip system:

*** VIRUS Warning ***

(I think):  do not try this without wearing protection:

*** VIRUS warning (again, just to make sure) ***

This needs to be deleted and removed from the quip system (which incidentally
could do with a bit of tidying).  It's been there for a little while with no-one

Sorry I know this probably isn't the way I'm supposed to handle it but atleast
this way it'll get seen by the appropriate person(s).  I tried uploading a quip
to say so but that was ignored.

Note that it doesn't do any harm sitting there, it's just a PHP script (with no
way of being executed either server or client-side unless you go to a huge, huge
amount of trouble).

Since it's a huge pain in the ass to delete anything from bugzilla, there's
little point to digging in the database to kill it and I didn't feel like
shuffling around for the database password at the time. :)

If it makes you feel better, though, I've gone ahead and done it now.
