I need a little help here. I received this email which I have attached 
talking about a virtual spokesperson. I have been looking at this type 
of tech for several clients recently. When I clicked on the link it 
opened MY localhost connection. What I mean is, when I clicked the link 
and the web page loaded what I saw were my development on my computer.

Kinda freaked me out. So I dumped the cache on my browser and typed the 
url in directly. And again I see my own computer files.

Would someone click on the link in the email and see what happens for 
them? Someone who uses apache on their system could click on this and 
see if it does the same thing, and then report back what you see.

If this is able to do that, this is a MAJOR security problem.
