13 sure ways to get your computer infected big time!
« on: October 26, 2008, 12:22:17 AM »
Hi malware fighters,

Actually there is a thirteenth rule here, and this do everything contrary to what you have learned visiting this forum. Then there are again some twelve golden ways left:

1) Look for cracks, subdivided in illegal software and .....

2) Practice unsafe hex, browse the web for free prOn

3) Look for software that adds smileys to your posts, mail etc

4) Look for kewl skins, screensavers etc

5) Look for spyware removers, concentrate on the kind that makes you pay before it removes anything

6) Install a P2P program and repeat all of the above

7) Look for pokergames, slotmachines and other gambling outfits

8) Look for ringtones and other stuff to bling your phone

9) Do NOT pay for anything, the internet is a place where you can steal anything from everyone without even saying as much as thank you

10) Click on those unexpected links and attachments in email, because you're curious...

11) Do loan your laptop to the next door neighbour for the weekend and give him your Admin account login so he can get his project done with no hassles

12) Let the Babysitter use your laptop for 'schoolwork'

As I commented to Bob, sometime back, those recipe sites can be dangerous. I have yet to encounter anyone who was infected by porn sites.  ::)

So do take care.

That is why there is a smiley at the end, depicting the irony of looking in dodgy sites ;D

I have yet to meet anyone who admitted to being infected by visiting a p0rn site ;D
Then I guess that is the point ;D
