    My mom got a previous variant on her iMac. I've since made her a non-administrator. Does this make her safe(r)?

    Actually she got it reading Pride & Prejudice fan fiction. Chew on that.

    Specifically she said she clicked on a random link there and it "did something". :sigh: parents.

    I've seen them (actually, I've seen Windows versions that use the same "Video ActiveX Object" message) on some non-porn sites out there. They start with the pornos, but they eventually migrate out to the wider web.
