Anatomy of a malware scam


Best way to remove it?

I find you have two options when it comes to removing those damn things. The first is System Restore, which is amazingly robust. It saves you reformatting and reinstalling, which coincidentally is option two.

I don't consider option 3 because when you download one, others come. By that time, cleanup just isn't an option.

I found that too. Uninstalling Adblock plus seemed to fix it!

More developments

I've had this festive fellow on my list for a while now. A short time ago, repeating "Eat it" a number of times times prompted Santa to respond with a number of fellatio-tastic golds, such as:

"You want me to eat what?!?

I guess we could talk about oral sex all day long, but it's time to move on..."


"See if you can get someone else to eat it!

Let's talk about something besides oral sex..."


As of very recently this doesn't seem to work! As of 15 minutes ago, he responded with the more mundane...

"If you need a break to go eat, I will be right there when you come back."

What does this mean? That this is quite possibly the FASTEST EVER turnaround time for a Microsoft Patch EVER!
