Folks, be careful! Everyone is rushing to the new 90-day-Jane page, which seemed to replace the first 90dayJane page. BUT: There is an unknown executable program, potentially a virus lurking behind what seems to be the link to Jane’s Dress-for-the-Big-Day video. The first Jane’s original video on Youtube has disappeared – removed by the user. So why should there be a link to it on a new blog?
If you click the you Youtube still image, this is what you get:
I am on a Mac, so this can’t affect me…. but Windows user beware, no Youtube link would normally launch an exe – which means: virus alert! Could it be that the person hiding behind the new 90-day-jane.blogspot.com is not the same person that launched 90dayjane.blogspot.com – but someone with even worse intentions?
The original Jane had announced to be setting up something new at http://www.90dayjane.com if Blogspot canceled her account. She then canceled it herself, but the redirect from 90dayjane.com to 90dayjane.blogspot.com is still active – which only supports the fact that the new blog, i.e. 90-day-jane.blogspot.com was started by someone else.
I have hence removed all links to the site, if you want to go there you need to type in the URL manually, at you own risk.
Here is a recap of what has happened so far.
Update! We have a meme! Say hello to 90 Day Tania which is a spoof, rather than a fake:-) Also, they’re hosting a virus free copy of the original blog, in case you’d like to have a look at what it was like.
