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!




On a Mac, that looks sooo damn fake! ROFL

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......

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?

"Gwerdna concluded that OS X contains "easy pickings" when it comes to vulnerabilities that could allow hackers to break into Apple's operating system.

"Mac OS X is easy pickings for bug finders. That said, it doesn't have the market share to really interest most serious bug finders," added gwerdna."
"The only thing which has kept Mac OS X relatively safe up until now is the fact that the market share is significantly lower than that of Microsoft Windows or the more common UNIX platforms.... If this situation was to change, in my opinion, things could be a lot worse on Mac OS X than they currently are on other operating systems," said Archibald at the time.

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.

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.
