Free computer virus!

Don't know about you guys, but I don't think that I'd click [download] on this sucker, but that's what 409 people did recently.

"Some of them must have clicked on it by mistake. Some must have been curious or stupid," said Mikko Hypponen, head of research at data security firm F-Secure.

Although, honestly, I might well have clicked to the site (hopefully earning the 'curious' label) to see what was the deal... especially given the invincibility of a Mac. </smug>

One thought on “Free computer virus!”

  1. Hahaha. True. My windows PC at work had a virus that was actually my fault (looked like an e-card or something and I stupidly tried to open it). It should be gone, but I think I should reinsall my system anyway just to be safe. Will do that when I have a day with no analysis to do and time to spend reinstalling all my software. Must admit that the peace of mind that comes with the mac as far as viruses are concerned is pretty great.
