This is what I was told by a McAfee consumer services tech rep just a week ago.

Sure wish they could catch these little criminals and publicly and summarily execute them. Russian websites are very dangerous to use.

That doesn't sound good. You need a better internet security program.
My Kaspersky Internet Security program blocks the link and stops it from doing anything. Despite the warnings it throws up I have surfed the site for some time today with no ill effects (I have the system and everything backed up so if something goes wrong I can restore it and be back up and running in a short time)
