24 October 2017. Porn Sites are Full of Malware and Viruses… Cybercriminals Know that Most Men Think With Their Balls, Not Their Brains

________________________

Last night, I came home to a computer with all sorts of dire messages posted on it. A geekly friend had warned me about such, and about how to get rid of them without paying off cybercriminals. Firstly, they have all sorts of warnings about calling a phone number, where a Microsoft-approved wallah would take of your problem (you get someone from Bangalore telling you that they’ll solve your problem for a “nominal fee of 100 bucks”). Of course, it’s a scam. I ran my defence software… it warned me to get off the page ASAP. This happened because my Nicky was cruising porn sites. Criminals like to attach malware, viruses, and Trojans to porn because they know that most men think with their balls, not their brains (as for me, I simply find porn boring and don’t access it… like most other women out there).

So, if your man gets you into this pickle, “control-alt-delete” and bring up the task manager. “End Process” on the browser. It normally ends your problem. You won’t be able to get him to stop cruising porn. That’s a given. What men find so pleasing about it is a mystery to me. However, be aware that most computer malware comes attached to porn. Have a good anti-virus/anti-malware software setup; it’ll normally foil most of the plug-uglies. Don’t be fooled by the messages. Criminals are liars… of course, they’re “approved by Microsoft” (in a pig’s arse). Keep vigilant… not only are there rum sorts about, your man won’t stop accessing porn. It’s a hazard of modern life…

READ N’ HEED! Microsoft Sez Collaborative Viruses Can Sync To Fuck Up PCs

sick computer

______________________________

Microsoft research assumes that two computer viruses that collaborate will be harder to clean from infected PCs. The pair of viruses foils removal by downloading updated versions of their malware partner. Once accidentally downloaded on a PC, the viruses allow hackers to take control over a machine and use it for saleable information or spamming. A blogpost by Microsoft malware researcher Hyun Choi illustrated this close interaction between the two viruses. Mr Choi explained that one often finds the two Windows viruses, known as Vobfus and Beebone, together. Vobfus was usually the first to appear on a machine, he said, and used different tactics to damage its virtual victims. Vobfus could install via booby-trapped links on a various range of websites, travel via network links to other machines, or lurk on USB drives and infect PCs that it’s plugged into.

Vobfus, which installs first, then downloads Beebone, connecting the machine to a botnet… a huge network of infected computers. Mr Choi said, after this, the two malware programs start working together to regularly download new versions of their virus-partner, thus, multiplying cybercrime. He said that was an effective mechanism that helped the virus remain sustainable on infected machines, explaining, “In the case with Vobfus, even if it is detected and remediated, it could’ve downloaded an undetected Beebone, which can, in turn, download an undetected version of Vobfus. The two threat families are intrinsically related”. Mr Choi stated that this “cyclical relationship” helped Vobfus become a persistent issue since 2009, when it first appeared. He explained that defeating the two viruses together was not easy, he said, because Vobfus was very good at travelling via networks. In addition to keeping software up to date, he recommended disabling the “AutoRun” feature on Windows machines, as Vobfus exploits this when it comes via USB drives. In addition, he said, people should be more attentive when they click links on external websites to avoid falling victim to booby-trapped URLs.

Editor’s Note:

Let’s keep it simple. DON’T CLICK ON EXTERNAL LINKS (hey, guys… that means the link with the image of the gal with the gigundo titties, OK?). That should help you a great deal. Secondly, talk to your geek… they can help you. They have the knowledge that you don’t have. Don’t fuck with your machine without talking with your geek first. You’ll probably screw things up worse. Trust me on this one.

16 November 2011. False Warning from Trend Micro on VFR…

_____________________________

A friend warned me that a false warning is being passed by Trend Micro concerning this blog. I’ve pasted the warning below. THIS IS BOGUS. If this site were compromised, ALL of WordPress would be compromised… it’s quite that simple. There’s no malware on this site… I have SEVERAL anti-bug programmes installed, and, trust me, I’d know it if there were ANY problems (and there aren’t). In any case, VFR goes through the WordPress servers, and you can’t “contaminate” a particular blog… it’s technically impossible. Screwy world we live in, no?
