    For those of you that use NordVPN you might want to look at this article.

    Apparently someone has created a spoofed site and individuals signing up for NordVPN from it are also getting a load of malware.

    First time I have seen this warning but perhaps it is old news for those of you Using NordVPN.


    A nasty malware is parading itself as one of our favourite VPNs

    Spelling of favorite is from the article's headline. Not sure if this makes the article more or less creditable.

    "Favourite" is actually how it's spelled everywhere in the world... except in the US.

    Ha! I was literally just thinking about that when you posted.

    But whilst different spelling in different countries is understandable, this really aggravates me. AFAIK Solder is spelt Solder even in the US. There is no such word as Soder or Sodder! There's an "L" in there for Christ's sake! Why American's seem incapable of pronouncing such a simple word is beyond me.

    OTOH I'm sure foreigners are equally perplexed with how the British pronounce words such as "Worcestershire". :D

    Funny thing here is even Jonny Ive has been caught pronouncing it both ways...
