Beware Writer Beware, Again

A lawsuit against the operators of the Writer Beware website hosted by the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers Association (SFWA) has been dismissed by the judge in the case. The case was brought by a literary agent ALLEGEDLY noted by Writer Beware.

Writer Beware is a publishing industry watchdog group sponsored by Science Fiction & Fantasy Writers of America (SFWA) which "shines a light into the dark corners of the shadow-world of literary scams, schemes and pitfalls."

Web visitors should beware, though. The SFWA site was hacked and infected with a trojan. This has been ALLEGEDLY cleaned, but be especially cautious if you have an old or out-of-date browser. (Yes, even you MAC owners.)
