That I can agree with.
Crash or possible infiltration?
Not even a fair choice - I can handle the crashing longer than I can handle
someone executing code on my PC that does something horrible. Plus - if it
crashes, you repeat and it does it again - going to that page is a no-go
from that point on and that site will get reported in whatever way I can
report it to whom-ever I can report it.
