    Surfing the internet is fun but when someone crates a site that does this, it's just wrong wrong wrong! Especially if your a windows user!

    Why is it in here?

    Happens quite frequently, I get a laugh, while at the same time knowing there are plenty that take it seriously...

    Whoops. Should be in the web section.

    Yeah makes me laugh too.. Though I think the page designer missed a few things out, how about a simple php-script to divert Mac users to the relevant Mac page cause windows exploreres just don't look right on a Mac.:rolleyes:

    Whoever did it, their English is atrocious.

    "34 items was found"

    "needed to be heal as soon as possible"

    I say we start a fund.

    "Better Education for Computer Scammers"

    or perhaps some sort of mentoring program. If I'm gonna be scammed, I at least expect decent English. Don't even get me started about the emails I get from Nigeria......

    Perhaps the forums admins should create a custom button for vB? Would really be useful, me thinks and it's not that difficult.

    Ugh, Total Security. I have had to deal with that one at work a few times already. It will soon overthrow Antivirus 200x.

    Imagine if malware writers did take the time to make Mac versions. How many Mac users would install the "security software"? 5% marketshare Macs haz it.

    Not with you. Macs are vulnerable to the malware packages - that is worms and trojans - like sites like this host. It's just no-one really cares.

    No one really cares to take the extraneous effort of even trying, knowing, through repeated outcomes, that it will ultimately fail. Why don't you write us a Trojan, and we'll all test it out for ya?

    Sorry? We know for a fact that there are trojans out there that affect Macs and, indeed, have done so. It's been done already.

    http://www.cultofmac.com/mac-malware-trojans-are-nothing-new/5124

    The fact is no-one cares enough to make trojan writing a mass market exercise for Macs in the same way they do for Windows.
