Viruses, worms, trojans, and rogue antispyware software are getting pretty sophisticated. As careful as I am, one caught me today, on a computer I don’t usually use. Usually I use Firefox. But I opened up Google Chrome, right clicked on a link, and open in new window. Suddenly, I got one of those phony webpages telling me that I had a virus, and doing a scan.
Zone Alarm did not catch it, which is pretty disappointing. I set it to deny, as I usually do, but it still executed.
