Oh, them virus guys just get more and more clever [Mar. 31st, 2004|12:20 pm]

There's a new spate of viral attachments going around, but I was horribly amused by the text of the message to which one was attached:

Try this, or nothing!

+++ Attachment: No Virus found
+++ MC-Afee AntiVirus - www.mcafee.com


In an extra evil attempt at zapping you, the message pretends that the attachment has already been scanned and deigned clean.

There should be an extra-special level in hell for these people.

There are either several of them, or they rotate the text. I've seen McAfee, Norton..and a couple of other lesser known companies that I can't even remember now. Bah. Stupid virus emails anyway.

I agree. The number of man hours wasted on fixing the messes these things cause.

I wish people would return to doing something positive to change the world they live in, instead of this.

Ah, I love living in a world where I don't receive virus or spam e-mails. =)

Oh, we Mac folks can and do receive such emails. We just laugh in their general direction.

Heh...

Mine said "Norman Antivirus"... That was pretty amusing.

God bless the Mac. I can open these things and laugh and laugh...

Although I'm sure I'll get my fair share of phone calls about this today.
