FYI, just to close the loop on this item...
Looks like this page was an employee of Zango (see Vitalsecurity.org's story. Guess a bunch of MySpace sites were propagating the spyware (Zango)...tsk tsk tsk.
As of July 14 MySpace those sites were either shutdown or Zango software removed - see Vitalsecurity.org post here
My suspects this wont be the last time we see an online social networking site being used to spread spyware crap.

i got a good question on this topic ... every browser i use ... wether(sp) it's firefox,opera,IE,firefox tux, nautilus, konquerer, mozilla, etc.
it always crashes viewing my profile on myspace .. it confuses me cause it's not just a firefox thing ... it's a whole OS thing... windows and linux.... havent tried mac yet ....
now i'm not tryin to spam my stupid little blog .. but i'm looking for some input on what could be the cause
dont have other tabs open when ya click it .. it may crash whatever you're using

Nope no crashing on my end, left my other tabs open and it loaded fine for me..
Although there was a small spike in the CPU usage, but other then that nothing out of the normal.

any other ideas?
*edit* for crazy idea
maybe that cpu spike is a system call that i havent been able to chase down yet possibly something sound related? cause the only thing i can think of that's odd w/ my system is the corrupt audigy eeprom ... but i cant see why that would only crash the browser and not take the whole system down with it
