Spawns in the room marked #5 (see [1] EQAtlas] map for specific spot)

If you click on the [1] for EQatlas its sends you to a wonderful page that forces you to task manager out of it and scan your computer to make sure you don't have a lovely virus.
thanks for that.

I tested the link and it does seem to use some kind of redirect to lead to a Malware site of somekind. Thankfully, noscript prevented the redirect and I was able to see where it was trying to go and look it up. I'm editing it for now and putting said link in a spoiler below here so that it can be easily restored if I'm in error. As best I can tell, the site originally linked was valid back in 2011 and went defunct at some point since.

If an admin wants to check the link and confirm my findings, feel free to edit my post here to delete the spoiler if I'm right, or revert the wiki entry if I'm not.


Edit: If link tested and confirmed to be a problem, there's a post in the wikipage where it was also linked that will need to be edited by an admin.

Seen some reports about it lately, I just edit posts accordingly for safety reasons.

Since I'm pretty much the only admin around the forums, feel free to report posts and remove the links in pages. I can see a redirect happening using sandboxie.
