Neener Neener Neener

Watch out for the Storm Worm.

Yep. There's a new piece of malware out there, and it's a badd'un. It's an email about a big ol' storm in Europe that's killing just scads of people. If you open it you'll find an .exe file attached. If you open that the trojan horse installs on your machine and sends your Visa Card info, shirt size, and the WebMD queries about that rash to some dickweed in Asia.

If you were paying close attention to the above paragraph, you'll notice that the file is ".exe," which savvy Mac users know means "not me."

This means that a lot of Windows folks can upgrade to Vista right away. They're going to be reformatting their hard drives anyway. Might as well boot up the new OS.

You can melt cheddar cheese on Alpo but it's better if you just eat it. The cheese that is.
