    OH NOES!! OMG!!!11!!!!!11oneone!!, everyone quick, reformat all your Ubuntu system, and do an over 9000 overwrite to your hard disk, change all your password in all the forums you are using. Or better yet change your identity and change where you live and start a new life and never ever again install UBUNTU!!!!111!!

    Rofl... after clicking on "Find all threads started by ComputerSaysNo" and reading some of them... I suspect that this thread could well be a trolling attempt.

    With these blank statements you look like a madman screaming in the street. Provide evidence with your posts.

    Do you have any idea how insane you sound posting this without one iota of proof or reasonable suspicion? Are you trying to pull off some sort of really bad Halloween prank? It would have worked better in the privacy section, believe me. ComputerSaysNo, my computer says "Derp."..that is all.


    Edit: There are holes in every browser out there undiscovered, that's not exactly news. One problem at a time though, logs/screenshot/proof of some kind please.

    Better document any similar statements, if any, in future for a better discussion.
