WurmOnline / JAVA game-software. Anyone know it?

Don't ask how I discovered this.

Anyway... I looked at some interesting screenshots, and I clicked "Launch" to see the Flash or whatever thing play itself out.

WRONG.

It loaded, via Java, without permission!!! - a slew of Java gunk into my system. The OS asked me a few seconds later if I wanted to launch - as it could not verify the certificate.

I told it know and fired off a violent letter for a file list/uninstaller.

In the meantime, I'm wondering if anyone here knows of this stuff, and if it is safe, etc.

Can't say that I do and probably ought to say I have no clue. But really I'm posting a reply because I noticed no one has bothered to post a reply and didn't want you to feel bad about that.

Don't look at me. I had nothing to do with it!
