Sorry for the late reply, but this doesn't mean your computer is being hacked, a VERY rarely used property is to set the cursor while it's over a section, sort of like how it changes to the normal text selection tool when over text.


Oh I'm sorry, I missed this. I looked at their page code and they changed the color of the cursor with javascript. I did not find any downloads or anything like that. It did, however, increment a counter object on a website... probably letting them know how many people saw it.

It was very strange.

Saw headlines saying full moon on a solstice was going to make all manner of strange things happen - blame it on that?

If you think about it, there's always a full moon somewhere in the galsxy. Maybe that explains a lot?
