That Russian Meme thing ....

Hey, all ... I've seen that "Russian Meme" thing in a bunch of Friends' journals, and it turns out to be a NASTY bit of Java coding which (among other things) can snag your password.

I'm glad that I'm a paranoid enough person that I almost never "do an LJ meme" without first reading the comments on the post (just in case other people are bitching about it!). In this case, every post of that Russian thing showed up as "no such entry" when I tried to read the comments on it ... which really made me suspicious, and led me into following the above trail of info.

Anyway ... thought I'd pass all this along here.
