So, I bought a book, Steal This Computer 4.0, the other day, and started reading it. Not a heavy read. No big deal. But it came with a CD that touted a lot of cool, useful tools to keep one’s computer secure and whatnot. Well, I put the CD in my drive just to get an overview of it’s contents. Cool. Lots of stuff.
Well, then, without doing more, I decided it was late and I wanted to get to bed. Hey, I thought, this would be a good time to do a system scan with Kaspersky. I chose, full scan, which takes hours, and I went to bed.
I got up this morning, checked the computer. Kaspersky was all red and upset. It found two Trojan viruses!! Where were they? You guessed it – right in the E-drive, on the CD! Needless to say, the disc is out of the computer and ain’t going back in for any reason.
Kind of like buying a book on bomb-making and having it blow up your face!
