Peeking into the Trash

Just to see what was there, I rendered a thumbnail for every URL in my email trash folder. Below are the first 250 (full set is here).

    That’s pretty brave. Wouldn’t there have been more than a few malicious links?

    Hi Magnus, you’re right, I probably should have rendered these in a virtual machine and then destroyed it. But rather, I rendered them in memory on a Linux machine using Xvfb and CutyCapt, the latter being a webkit-based web rendering tool. My hope was (and is) that this activity didn’t infect my machine.
