Another crim busted but still no public explanation as to how he managed to infect that number of machines.
Thumbs up for providing useful information the public can use to help protect themselves.
It may be just me but compared to conventional crime (e.g. Professor Plum with the lead pipe in the ballroom at 9am at his residence his victim being Colonel Mustard because he slept with the Profs wife) Cybercrime (e.g. some dude had stolen credit card info and infected 5000 machines) seems a bit opaque when it comes to sharing details.
As someone probably once said. With knowledge comes wisdom.
How will mumsnet know what to ban?
How many of you can give a clear and concise answer when a none technical person asks the question "so where do viruses come from". Ill bet the go to answer is something along the lines of "flash banners, ads, email attachments and porn sites" which is pretty vague when you think about it.
Us geeks can sense virus laden sites almost with superhuman precision but i'll wager most of us can't really explain why.
I like to think I can. But I probably can't.
