This question already has an answer here:
I got a link to
http://220.127.116.11/~naowit/dustin.html, which was masked as a youtube.com link via email. Now I'm not willing to visit it because I know it's probably got some type of malware on it, or at the very least a scam/phishing attempt.
But... I'm always curious when I get these links. I want to visit them to see what they are up to. I have Sandboxie, but is that secure enough if I simply run the browser in a sandbox?
In general, how should you visit links that you are unsure of? I always have NoScript running, but I know that's not enough.
