Do not click on any unknown link external to your trusted sites

That is the obvious conclusion after reading the blog by johnip:

“In Hong Kong, Gazeley said his team had found a new version of the worm that didn’t use e-mail to lure victims.
Instead, it loaded scripts onto hacked websites where users who clicked on a malicious link would be infected directly. He said it was too early to tell how many websites had been affected.”

Explore new unknown sites only when you know how to deal with worms and hijacking of your computer.

  1. I rarely leave a response, however i did some searching and wound up here . And I do have a couple of questions for you if it’s allright. Is it simply me or does it look like a few of these comments appear like left by brain dead folks? 😛 And, if you are writing at other places, I would like to keep up with everything fresh you have to post. Would you make a list of the complete urls of your social pages like your Facebook page, twitter feed, or linkedin profile?

      1 “does it look like a few of these comments appear like left by brain dead folks?”. Yes, I also feel the same and suspected that those comments may have been made by robots.
      2. My discussion on social issues are only carried out here. I don’t use any facebook or tweeter pages.

  2. I was curious if you ever thought of changing the structure of your site? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or two pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?|

  6. Great advice Tony always telling people whose computers l look after to not just click links and it falls so often on deaf ears … ClickJack or KeyLogger are the worst and always recommending and providing good antivirus protection with a firewall at best prices .. Ian
