Do you want me to mention Bing or just keep my mouth shut?

The problem was in the Prolific servers, not with the search engines. They were just reporting what they had found there. It's been fixed, but apparently Bing's searchbots are not as fast as Google's in updating sites.

I guess I must again waste some more valuable time and repeat that I have never seen Funnyfish, and know nothing about it. Prolific probably thanked me for bringing the whole concept of doing screensavers to them, and giving them the code framework that they were based on.

Every discussion you've ever started or participated in about the artistic integrity of the aquarium has always trodden upon familiar ground -- your fear that someone would add whimsical fish, gaudy backgrounds, and silly sound effects.

Something tells me when you found out about this product, it was an "Et tu, Brute?" moment.

Yeah, I stupidly clicke the funnyish link and noticed the hack. Plus, run a virus scan if you wnet there today. It tried to run a background process on me, but I cut it off at the pass.
Bat rays? We don't need no stinking bat rays!

I feel for the folks at Prolific. Looks like they either did not completely clean up the last problem, or didn't find and close the hole that is being used to compromise their server(s?). I do note that they are running Apache 2.2.8 and PHP 5.2.12 which are both somewhat behind the latest stable releases (Apache 2.2.15 & PHP 5.3.2). It's impossible to say if that is the problem though.

Background process? They're using javascript to write the web page using hexadecimal encoding. I grabbed a copy of the raw data and decoded it. Looks like a pretty standard html page with text and one reference to the joke picture they are using:
