“Invite her over and fuck her.”

Have you ever heard of scareware? Well I hadn’t either until today. I’ve heard of what the new term is doing, I was just unaware they gave it a stupid name like scareware. Basically if you use a computer at all, you’ve probably run into some scareware at some point and time. It’s that little “official installed program” looking box that pops up when you’re checking out content that may not necessarily be deemed socially acceptable in some circles, that says WARNING, YOUR COMPUTER IS FUCKED. I’m paraphrasing of course, but you get the idea. If people knew what the fuck antivirus program they were using, you would realize that this pop up looks nothing like it. But since people are on autopilot most of the time, or they just don’t care, scams like this work, and they work well. Microsoft has said they have already cleaned nearly 8 million computers with their Malicious Software Removal Tool. Hey Microsoft, if you didn’t make such an easily exploitable operating system in the first place, we wouldn’t have near the problems we have. I blame you, and the idiots that are clicking on this shit enabling it to spread like herpes in a frat house. They should have named it suckaware or foolware or better yet, pwndware, because the second your brain kicks into over drive running through all the different possibilities of consequences you may end up facing because of the nasty fucked up shit you were looking at online, you click the button, and before you know it, you’re making deals with the devil to make sure no one finds out how much you suck at the Internet while the virus is taking over your system. Again, this is borderline social engineering at it’s finest. The greatest part about it, is that you probably didn’t have a virus or trojan on your computer to begin with until you clicked that fake antivirus message. Then on top of that, some people are actually giving this scareware their credit card information. You just paid to get your computer hacked and completely fucked up, how does it feel? I think the “powers that be” should code up some scareware of their own, but instead of scamming you out of money, it sends a message back to headquarters, and depending on if you clicked the fake pop up or not, decides if you are allowed to use computers anymore. Might as well make it a multi purpose application, and if you clicked on it, you also lose your privilege to reproduce, and drive. Three birds, one stone.
