Instant messaging everybody on your buddy list with a link to a virus: Priceless
So, yea, somebody on my buddy list, a fellow Informatics graduate, got duped and has a virus! It was even nice enough to try to propogate and catch me off guard on my Mac. But, alas, I am here to tell you I didn’t get hurt. Phew! Instead, I seemed to laugh at the matter.
What seems to make me laugh the most is that it appears that having up to date virus definitions and SP2 would have fixed this problem virus. Duh, just like doing those two things, oh, and not being retarded an clicking random links, is that hard to do. But, hey, we’re mature adults and that’s too much to ask in order to be a part of the Internet community, right? Let’s leave the retarded clicking to our nation’s 12 year olds.
