Update Our recent story on the MSN Communities bug, which lets outside surfers browse random image files belonging to Community members, contained a link which ceased to work shortly after we posted it.

Naturally, we quickly received a series of alternate links from concerned readers, but those also died after a few hours' use. Clearly, MSN is on top of the situation; but we remain confident that our beloved readers are as well. As soon as we learn of any new, working ones, we'll post them in this story.

The glitch that had been enjoyed here results in a Russian roulette style of surfing voyeurism, as there is a vast variety if material on the Communities site, ranging from the most innocent children's birthday parties to geriatric lesbian action.

Several Register readers informed us that by modifying the URL slightly, it began to work again (we knew we could depend on you guys). Unfortunately, these are now sadly dysfunctional:
http://communities.msn.com/_secure.msnw?ticket=lol
http://communities.msn.com/_secure.msnw?ticket=lo
http://communities.msn.com/_secure.msnw?ticket=l
http://communities.msn.com/_secure.msnw?ticket=a
http://communities.msn.com/_secure.msnw?ticket=b
http://communities.msn.com/_secure.msnw?ticket=ass

Undoubtedly, we'll hear of better ones soon.

Caveat emptor: some of the images are quite irredeemably ugly and you may wish you hadn't seen them. For a more detailed explanation of the glitch, and how it got such a dead cool name, consult our original item below. ®
