OT : Security Warnings

IMHO the biggest vulnerability since the turn of the century.

It's a bad sign when you're made aware of a new Windows patch by a story on the national news.
Although it's quite amusing to hear journalist types trying to use as much computer terminology as they can when covering such stories. (And using stock footage of Microsoft employees putting Windows 95 in retail boxes... ah, brings back the memories...)

WARNING WARNING ! Another fraud email emerges

Don't click on any links on emals that accuse you of being under police investigation.
It will, obscure its real target IP, attempt to resolve to a malicious site and use java to download a keylogger trojan. It will then log keystrokes during netbacnking and send information to a target email in Russia.
