Social Networking and Virus Distribution
Just a word of warning.
If you use Deviant Art, Gaia or Aiwa, be forewarned. My daughter managed to download an infection of the main computer. Looks to be a Google Redirect but may contain a root kit and a trojan.
I can't get on-line with it, as the CPU usage in normal mode stays at 100%. Safe mode, I can't start Avast AV or get on-line. I'll have to put some diagnostic/disinfectant on a CD so I can fix this poor, hosed computer.
If I were ever to get face to face with a hacker that was responsible, I swear, that would be the last time they would ever be able to use a computer.
