This is interesting.
If you think you have the safest OS in the world, you can still go to the wrong place.
https://www.аррӏе.com/ isn't always https://www.аррӏе.com/

Firefox users and Seamonkey 2.46 users can limit their exposure to this bug by going to
about:config

and setting network.IDN_show_punycode to true.

Subject description: A couple of old links
 

G'day,

I thought I'd post links to a couple of old pages discussing Puppy internet/network security - I assume this is the definition of 'secure' in the first post in this thread.

https://unix.stackexchange.com/questions/46287/when-does-the-puppy-linux-security-model-make-sense

http://barryk.org/puppylinux/technical/root.htm

The 'proof of this pudding' remains in the 'eating', or in security terms, lack of any Puppy being eaten.

Happy browsing.

David S.
