Santa Claus reached out for a little help from Stopbadware.org this week...It turned out that Santa's website, Santaslink.net had been hacked...The moral of the story is that the Grinches who are looking to spread their unsafe software are willing to hack even Santa’s website.

How wonderful that Santa had someone to turn to! :thumbsup:

Still trying to learn so much more about computers, so may I please ask something? I 'understand' why someone would hack into a site that contained banking info, etc - but why hack into a site such as Santas'? What worldly good could it do except to cause woe from their malice - or am I missing something, I wonder.
Never let your computer realize you are in a hurry or just typing the last few words of a vital document.

While outer events might make one happy or sad, happiness itself is entirely internal, and at all times completely within one's power.
