Re: Windows Security Provided by this Poster

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.

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.

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."

"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 think its funny...

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. Probably not, since the posters were created on a Mac.

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