comment Can You Get a Virus Simply by Opening an Email?
Hmmm, @LPChip, I feel that's a bad new feature then: yet another thing that people are going to enable without giving it much thought. While to prevent tracking, there is a huge difference in embedded messages and hosted messages :-(

comment Can You Get a Virus Simply by Opening an Email?
"most modern clients won't even load images" is true for linked external images, but all email clients I've used show MIME embedded images without ever asking (and some also show previews of PDF attachments or even the first frame of a video). But indeed, I don't know of examples of abuse.

comment My web server and web browser appear to be using port 80 at the same time
Also, the random port that an application uses (a browser asking the OS for a port) will be from a high range, certainly above 1024.

comment How does ISP know when user force reloads the browser?
I guess the weirdest thing is that pressing Ctrl+R makes the browser get new images (the blurry ones) while it already should have cached the good ones. For Ctrl+R, the Network tab in web developer tools will show you headers like If-Modified-Since or Etag for items that are already cached, which Vodafone seems to be ignoring...?

Which version do you see when clearing your local cache and visiting the page? And does the compressed HTML also have different URLs in <img src=...>?
