I am seeing lots of Microsoft CEO pictures showing up with a flashing red "S".... Any ideas?
It's probably that dreaded Ba11m3r Virus!
I thought Mac's didn't get viruses.
No, but Ballmer does! ... or IS!
Mine had a virus. Don't remember how but I resolved it.
You just have to use some sort of protection.
Not unless you were running OS 9 you didn't.
A sure fire way to protect one's self from the dreaded virus...
But there is no "S" in Ba11m3r Virus......
Looks like there are a couple of letters... just found a flashing "U" also... Hmm
v i r U S (I'm just making it up as I go! )
Ha..... Doh, and I typed VirUS too...that is too funny.
Ha.. I am now seeing a "E"
So we have
You mean demi-gods. I'd apologize for calling them Mods.
And what's up with the apostrophe in Mods?
SouthEnd United F. C. ?
I don't see what the fuss is about, lots of members have pictures of their idols for avatars.
I see that's true for you!
Ba11m3r malware, Macs don't get viruses
Only Malware...As has been posted many times on these boards, there are no known viruses that can infect OSX. That's not to say we should rest on our laurels though...Malware is on the rise.
A common sense approach to browsing / shopping etc. will keep Mac's infection free.
The humor here is priceless
There are no Mac OS X viruses in the wild and Macs don't get Windows viruses.
You can keep your Mac malware-free by practicing safe computing. This has always been true for Mac OS X.
Regardless of what labels you want to put on it, there are two prominent types of malware in the wild: malware that you can avoid by practicing safe computing alone (trojans), and malware that can affect your Mac, even if you practice safe computing, if you don't have antivirus software running (virus). There has always been the former for Mac OS X, but there has never been the latter.
Macs are not immune to malware, but no true viruses exist in the wild that can run on Mac OS X, and there never have been any since it was released over 10 years ago. The only malware in the wild that can affect Mac OS X is a handful of trojans, which can be easily avoided by practicing safe computing (see below). Also, Mac OS X Snow Leopard and Lion have anti-malware protection built in, further reducing the need for 3rd party antivirus apps.
Mac Virus/Malware FAQ
Make sure your built-in Mac firewall is enabled in System Preferences > Security > Firewall
Uncheck "Open "safe" files after downloading" in Safari > Preferences > General
Change your DNS servers to OpenDNS servers by reading this.
Be careful to only install software from trusted, reputable sites. Never install pirated software. If you're not sure about an app, ask in this forum before installing.
Never let someone else have access to install anything on your Mac.
Don't open files that you receive from unknown or untrusted sources.
For added security, make sure all network, email, financial and other important passwords are long and complex, including upper and lower case letters, numbers and special characters.
Always keep your Mac and application software updated. Use Software Update for your Mac software. For other software, it's safer to get updates from the developer's site or from the menu item "Check for updates", rather than installing from any notification window that pops up while you're surfing the web.
That's all you need to do to keep your Mac completely free of any Mac OS X malware that has ever been released into the wild. While you may elect to use it, you don't need any 3rd party software to keep your Mac secure.
Whoops! Sorry about that..... Seems like some of the demi-gods are up to something.....
The apostrophe virus?
GGJStudios has reproduced!
Maybe it's Surface.
If we have SEUFC, then we could have SUFCE, which means we are close to SURFACE.
Am I missing something, or is this a possibility?
We're also close to F. U. C. * E. * S.
The law of unintended consequences at its best
Close, but no cigar!
That reminds me of Jingleheimer Junction
Well, there's an M.
EDIT: And maybe two different people having the same letter means that it's occurring twice? I see two different S.
