      IE 11 copy/paste problem

      It has come to our attention that people using Internet Explorer 11 (IE 11) are having trouble with copy/paste to the forum. If you encounter this problem, using a different browser like Firefox or Chrome seems to get around the problem. We do not know what the problem is, but it seems to be specific to IE 11 and we are hopeful that Microsoft will eventually fix it.

We're unaware of any "counter-counter" worm that is looking for Dabber backdoors, but I have seen a significant rise in scanning for it, as well...Likely, someone is harvesting lists for later use..."
