They said they'd be doing quite a bit to improve Windows Security, this must be what they came up with.

Sort of like the stickers that say "Warning: this house/car protected by this sticker" that you can buy instead of an alarm.

I ordered a free set for my office. Now I can gaze up and remind myself why i have a mac......

Also, I can be credited with instituting a secure computing policy in the office...

Thanks Microsoft.

As of right now the ordering site for the posters is down, you cannot order posters, you can only download them. I hope this is up and running soon, they would make great white elephant gifts.

No bill, even though I couldn't believe this was from Microsoft.. it is for educational purposes however.

Damn, they don't have anymore posters....or at least the ordering is shut down :(

I wanted to get some and give them to my IT guys at work :D

Great stuff!

I'm surprised no one has posted their own Photoshopped versions of signs that more "accurately" describe Microsoft and where they can put their virus-infested software. :)

If they really wanted to educate the public on how to protect themselves from these viruses, they only need one sign that simply says "Buy a Mac." ;)

They were made on a Mac :) (quite some time ago too!)

"Hackers Ahead" and "Internet Worm Crossing"... finally some honest advertising from Microsoft!

Get yours before MyDoom uses MS's own product failings to attack them this coming week :)

I must say the posters are actually good. And they can be funny too... just like all the stuff Microsoft makes. Except, its not that funny; especially when it hurts you. I am thinking that this posters will do more damage than good. But don't get me wrong, the concept is funny. Microsoft does not have a good sense of humor.

*The ordering site has been shut down for maintenance purposes.

Maybe they caught a virus. :D Probably not, since the posters were created on a Mac. :p

Do they even think before doing this stuff? Do they realize how rediculous this is? :rolleyes: Duh!!!

Why did the Chicken cross the road?

Bill Gates' Answer:
I have just released eChicken 2003, which will not only cross roads, but will lay eggs, file your important documents, and balance your checkbook - and Internet Explorer is an inextricable part of eChicken.
