    Hello,
    Anyone falling for that, especially after seeing that "securely protected" thingie should have their Internet access revoked for life.

    Unfortunately, people still click on unknown links in email and various other "tricks" used to siphon information from them.

    Malware exists in sideral proportions because of:
    -Social engineering
    -Use of default settings
    -Serious software bugs

    Hello,

    Malware exists: money.

    It propagates successfully to:
    Bugs / software vulnerabilities

    All comes down to people who click / install crap.

    Right
    Without social engineering, dumb users and serious bugs, malware would only be smart attacks against few people and companies. Malware outbreaks wouldn´t exists. Lamers recompiling/packing known malware wouldn´t have chances

    I could have sworn I posted this same thing on here about a month ago. I know for a fact that I put it in broadbandreports.

    Oops, My apologies for not sharing the info sooner.

    I had a rep from some newspaper in DC contact me about the info I found.

    Here is the link I originally posted about it: http://www.dslreports.com/forum/remark,17157247

    In that link I explain what is installed and what baddies were found.
