Remember earlier this month when I was talking about the Update to the mitigation tools for IDN security problems?
Well, it turns out that Wikipedia has an external link to the tools in its Internationalized Domain Names article.
Unfortunately, they are pointing at the old download site of the 1.0 tools I posted about originally. A link that no longer resolves. :-(
Luckily the link is far enough down on the list that people haven't noticed, mostly. In fact if Sergey hadn't mentioned it to me I wouldn't have noticed (not being a paid Wikipedia fact checker does cut into the amount of time I could really spend on such a project!).
I am sure it will all work itself out, and someone will update the link shortly to point to the correct link.
And then also, just as hopefully (and so that no one takes this as a pure Wikipedia bashing blog post!), Microsoft won't move the link next time they do an update. :-)
