I thought by opening with an editor, I could see if it was real file rather
than an executable. I also wondered if it was really the book. Now I'm

and his telling directly aligns with the evidence. This is a very chilling

pdf starts to download. I'm sure they'll figure it out on their own.
Companies should check their own sites periodically to make sure that there
is not something quirky going on. In the meantime, I just add the sites to
my blocked sites list.

the pdf until my connection slows down from the download and my browser
