Infect Your Computer for Free in Helsinki

Reuters is reporting that Didier Stevens made an Internet ad pumping a computer virus. Not anti-virus, the actual thing. He had over 400 people click the ad that explicitly read:

“Is your PC virus-free? Get it infected here!”

Being an experiment, Stevens can only conlude that people are stupid.

    My conclusion also is that people are stupid! Does nobody have any common sense anymore??

    So… I’m just now getting around to commenting on your blog. Been a bit busy unpacking. I guess I should strive to be as avid a blogger as you. It’s not like I really don’t have the time since I’m not “working outside the home” anymore! This stay at home mom gig is okay… I’ve watched a zillion movies as I’ve been unpacking. Well have a good weekend!

    Common sense has long ago become a rare commodity. I long for the days when the phrase “average intelligence” wasn’t a synonym for “pea brain.”

    Movies are good. Any favorites this week? I’ve got to watch Pirates 2 before we (actually, I) go see the third this weekend. Shrek the Third was good.
