    The saddest part of all this is probably the individuals who actually click the link....

    Now thats the saddest part :p But this is a Windows only virus, right? And not one of those threats that have been surfacing for OS X, right?

    Yes, Windows only and not a Mac scare.
    But since it is email, the Mac could be a carrier I suppose.

    *evil devilish laughter* I'm really glad that I don't have to deal with these viruses on my mac. Even if there is a virus for mac, my dad has a lifetime subscription to norton anti-virus through his work. :)

    I remember a bling dealer called Ratner in the UK many years ago mentioning that his products were "crap" - he went out of business quite quickly.
    Do you think theres any chance of Billy boy doing the same thing?
