QR Codes: The nuts and bolts

Warning! Do not scan the QR code to the right. It will take you to one of the internet's most notorious and infamous web sites. I created the QR code using Kaywa. Maybe I'll make stickers of it and attach them to products in stores. What could you do? You scan the code and - horrors! - you are taken to this infamous web site. Maybe one day somebody will describe for me the defense against this attack. Until then, I cannot see the merit of taking a URL and encrypting it into a non-readable code. Just saying.
