    A download file that reads:
    ___

    You have chosen to open "gdoodle.pl"
    From http://nightshadeinteractive.com
    ___

    I always hit cancel, cleaned my chache's and it keeps appearing every hour or so.

    could it be a spyware? or malware?

    See Attachment of the picture. THANKS!!

    Opened at home. Running antivirus and firewall. I saw a blank page and the google logo.

    I decided to check the link for viruses using a single anti-virus company. Nothing was found. Most likely this script makes a phishing page. No more.

    Safari doesn't execute perl scripts. Perl CGI programs are
    executed by a web _server_, not a web _browser_.
    Perhaps a mistake when writing code page. Hope ...
