I nearly clicked on a rogue but then I thought they would use the GUI of known reputable ones so I chose rogue.

Just took the test again got 100% but noticed the pics were different from before.

Is a good find ronnie, if there was a Malware topic it should be a sticky as a reminder to people.

What about putting it on the "learning it list"?

Not sure if it would apply to that as those are mainly programming and technical courses but only the mods can really decide on those things.
