Viruses on Blogspot?

I am totally lifting this post from Metafilter, just to help get the awareness out.

It may be possible to pick up a virus via blogspot blogs. You're all safe from me, but have a read of these links: 1, 2, 3, and discussion here.

Ten-second Cliffs Notes: stay away from that "Next Blog" button on the upper right...

After looking at the MetaFilter page you linked, it seems like this may not be as bad as it seems. It appears many of the problems can be avoided by using a non-IE browser. Still, many thanks for talking about this.

It could certainly be argued that it might not be worth the risk. You have to click "Next Blog" a lot sometimes to find a something decent. But it's still interesting to try once in a while.
