Warning: Virus threat has been detected!

How crude can scaremongers get? Apparently, cruder than I thought. For example, take this screenshot from a Mac Book. They are trying to make the website look like a Windows Explorer window ... on a Mac! Oh, and I am sure there are people out there who will click "Repair all" in a hurry and then the scareware will have won its first battle.

I have a request to make here. If you ever encounter such a screen (you are using Mozilla Firefox, aren't you?), please go to "Help" > "Report web forgery..." to report the website. Visit to learn more.

I hope you are having a great weekend (for those whose weekend has already started)!
