Checking if anyone else has heard of this protocol. It seems to be a method of bypassing security filtering software.

The reason I ask is that we received a security alert with a link hxxp://pastebin.com/###.

Seems very suspicious and want to know if anyone can shed light. Is this a new phishing/malware methodology?
