There's been a breach of LJ security using embedded content, where post entries are edited to be public and contain malicious flash content. Please see my post on meta_lj for more details and updates.

Thank you for being patient:)

Jeeeezus, I'm running, AD Block plus, No Script, Flashblock, and Sandboxie, and I'm still a touch paranoid.

I realized the original post kinda sounded eerily like the ones where some journal or community's entries would get deleted and a post would be made saying that the journal or community had moved elsewhere, with comments disabled and a link. And it's definitely not something I've done before--but, it's not about ads, so I felt like it belonged more on . However, has a much bigger subscription base (understandably!), and I felt like this was a pretty important notification to get out.

Definitely a yes on the warning.

I've already checked my recent entries for contamination, and I haven't found anything so far. I'll put off reading my Friends page for a couple of days and see what happens. Whew. *Wipes sweaty brow*

Will Flash Block and no script prevent this exploit from running?
