    SAN FRANCISCO — Benjamin Daines was browsing the Web when he clicked on a series of links that promised pictures of an unreleased update to his computer's operating system.

    Instead, a window opened on the screen and strange commands ran as if the machine was under the control of someone — or something — else.

    Daines was the victim of a computer virus.
