    .htm = folder deletion

    I was talking to my friend who happens to be the one behine www.safehack.com and he pointed out this very interesting thing to me:

    If you have a file called whatever.htm and in that same location you have a folder called
    whatever_files if you delete the whatever.htm it will also delete the whatever_files folder without asking any questions

    on c:\ i have a file called boo.htm
    on c:\ i also have a folder called boo_files

    if for some reason i choose to delete boo.htm my folder boo_files (possible containing valuable data) will also be deleted without my permission/without asking a single thing.

    for more on this check out http://www.safehack.com/Advisory/ie_files_issue.txt

    what do u guys think of this? It is very interesting and not very bright on the side of microsoft!

    Quitmzilla is a firefox extension that gives you stats on how long you have quit smoking, how much money you\'ve saved, how much you haven\'t smoked and recent milestones. Very helpful for people who quit smoking and used to smoke at their computers... Helps out with the urges.
