As I have posted here before; If more of our members would go to (Breaking Virus & Security News) and do a little reading a lot of these bogus things would not affect Bleeping Computer members. Nice job keeping us informed Broni.

They just don't give up. I just wonder how people are surprised about this kind of thing anymore. Almost every part of the computer industry has been attacked.
