Strange torrent download from this site – Harmless and corrected.

Today, I noticed that navigating to this site caused my browser to download a torrent file.  Since I don’t want my visitors to receive forced downloads, I did a little research:

The strange torrent download is confirmed harmless and is caused by Twitter’s code for the sharing button that I use on my site.  Until they resolve their code issues, I’ve stopped using the “official” sharing button.

If your browser downloaded this file recently, I apologize and hope you’ll continue to return to my site.  Now, I’ll take off my IT hat and get back to work in the shop.

 

Thanks,

Matt
