Good News, Bad News

Well, you guys, I've just been informed that my computer has been attacked by a porn virus.

I know this because my computer started talking to me, or a voice did anyway so it must be my computer.  And then there was a warning screen too, with a number I should call or a button I should press or download or something.  (I'm afraid to say I didn't read the whole thing.) 

But it turns out that this porn virus isn't going to install porn for me to watch, it's going to steal my photos and information and infect my software and a few other things that were spoken to me in grammatically incorrect manner.

Disappointing, I know.

But hey, I guess if Siri can live on my phone (even though I turned her off) she can have a boyfriend who talks on my computer and warns me about getting attacked by porn virus.

Technology.

(By the way, it's a "serious hacking issue".... it told me so!)

Well, that sucks. Snicker, sorry, couldn't resist. And yes, I'm 12.

I really hope you caught it fast enough and they didn't get any personal information or any of your data. Good luck getting it wiped...that can be frustrating.

Heh.

Not, actually a virus at all. Just a pop up ad that "talks" and tells me BAD BAD THINGS. Amuses/annoys me every time. And no, it's not even from "one of those" sites!

It never crossed my mind that it would be from one of those sites. ;)

Glad it wasn't a true virus...they can be nasty to get rid of.

Ad Block really makes for a nicer web surfing experience. It's a real culture-shock to surf the net on a browser without it. Unfortunately, it does impact the bottom line of sites trying to make a buck of the advertising, so I have whitelisted a couple sites I enjoy and that don't have too intrusive ads.

But glad you've installed it!

Fair enough Jason. It's really just one site that I need it for coughstreamingcough.

It's a huge difference on some sites Elliot, for sure.
