Wikipedia catches a virus

Or at least it was directing you to a sick friend. Wikipedia Germany was edited to include a link to a virus laden page, and has since been corrected.

Hardly a big deal – the open nature of Wikipedia makes it prone to this, and I’d be surprised if there aren’t more similar links lying around in there. The big giveaway, perp emailing people and directing them to the page, also highlights how obscure the post was to begin with.

And probably led to the outing.

UPDATE: This is now officially a Web 2.0 attack. Don’t people love buzzwords.
