Housekeeping note regarding weird torrent files

Several users have e-mailed me about a weird .torrent file that automatically started downloading when thy loaded the mainpage. According to Business Insider, this is the result of a bug/exploit in twitter’s share buttons. For the moment, we have disabled all twitter sharing buttons on the site. Please contact me here if you continue to experience a suspicious download from Southern Fried Science.
