Beware of scams in news area in DISE v0.1.7.3

Dear users and fans of DISE,

I have an urgent message for you, so this will not be a lenghty post.

First of all, I am sorry for the lack of updates and responses lately. I am trying to recover after burning myself out completely a while back... But this is not why I write this post.

I was made aware that DISE shows malicious content in the news area, and I have verified it for myself. For example, I saw a fake Norwegian news site; someone else saw a fake virus threat and a popup message telling the user to call some phone number.

Any strange popup messages you may see right after starting DISE, and anything you see in the news area, is malicious – made to scam people. Please DO NOT click any links in the news area, and do not believe any strange text in there or in popup messages.

In just a moment, I will officially release a hotfix I have been giving people via e-mail for a while.

DISE v0.1.7.3-hotfix1 provides a fix for the issue mentioned in this post.
