Second Post Alert on Referrer bug livecatz

I put this into "help" and now here:
I have found a referrer listed as a URL that starts with http: and continues with the regular code for the URL and ends with livecatz that is very evil! If you click on the link in the referrer list, it will try to insert a whole bunch of malicious javascripts and cookies to your computer. I had to shut down and remove at least 12 malicious cookies all sex and porn links. Hopefully this word will get to the right folks with antville! This is a bad one!

Found several more similar sites listed

This is getting to be quite a concern to me. I am finding other sites with "livecatz" in the URL and ones that have an XXX or "adult" in the address. Is anyone else finding this a problem? The highest concern I have is to prevent another blogger or guest from accessing that livecatz URL and having to go through what I did with the malicious javascript writing to your computer.

i understand your concerns

however, i hardly can think of a solution. certainly, if the url itself contains malicious code this has to be prevented e.g. by encoding it (which is already done, afaik).

but how should antville decide whether the site behind the url contains premium content or installs cookie or insults the reader etc.?

i suggest that the people simply take care for themselves which link they click – anywhere, not only at antville.org.
