Whilst Googling for a Crystal Reports solution this afternoon, I clicked a link that exploded...started spawning new browser instances faster than I could close them! WTF | :WTF: Actually, closing them seemed to be causing more harm than good, in a matter of seconds, resources were low enough that task manager seemed to take an eternity to load...long enough that I considered the only option would be a hard shutdown. Bummer! Sigh | :sigh:

The workstation did come back, so far the only damage was a SQL database that went into Suspect mode. Thank goodness it could be restored easily. As I was surveying the damage, and looking for anything suspicious, my mobile phone rang, the call displaying as a 'Private Call'. I answer and an automated voice informs me that my debit card has been suspended and gives the option to re-activate the account. They never identified the name of the bank, never used my name, and never referenced an 'account ending in XXXX'. I chose option 'hangup'. I am sure it was a scam, but could it be connected to the browser mishap earlier? I did check my accounts, and had no messages or alerts.

BTW, the exploding behavior happened on an article from businessintelligence.ittoolbox.com using IE 11. I won't say for sure this website and/or browser is to blame until I can replicate it in a VM. Weird huh?

I checked the website (it still showed up in history) above in a VM and it didn't explode.
