This is another alert for all of you to beware of certain scam antivirus software that is floating around out there. The way it works is that the unsuspecting web surfer (while exploring some site or carelessly opening what looks like legitimate email) suddenly gets pop-up messages warning of virus infections and malware detected on their computer. This is followed by messages saying click here to download (or activate) virus removal software to remove the threat. It's a scam to sell people virus protection software, though in many instances your computer is ACTUALLY infected with the virus. That's because the people trying to get you to buy the virus software have packaged the virus into the popup routines so that it automatically loads onto your machine (in the form of some kind of malware/trojan). Of course, this is nothing less than outright sabotage. It's like burning down someone's home to sell fire insurance. Luckilly we can't immediately get our hands on em. But you can potect yourself against this by using and keeping updated versions of both an antivirus program and an antispyware program. I happen to use MacAfee for the antivirus software, but it was the antispyware program I had (Stopzilla) that instantly detected the threat, stopped it in it tracks and deleted all of the potentially harmful programming. There are other such programs out there...choose your own, just be safe (and smart) and protect your system.
