BEWARE ::: Top Viruses - July 15 - August 15 2010

You may want to check and make sure that none of these pests reside on your PC! Run SpyBot or a Virus Scan. You can also perform a "search" in windows... just cut and paste the names of the viruses listed below into the searchbox and see what happens... "Search is complete. There are no results to display" is what you'll hopefully see! (But don't smile yet. Crank up your computer's AntiVirus program and do a THOROUGH scan, at least once a month, and once a week if you're online more than 6 hours a day!)

1.Trojan-Downloader.JS.Pegel.bp Secretly downloads malicious script from a remote server, installs and redirects users to further malicious websites.

2. Exploit.Java.CVE-2010-0886.a Allows attackers to download and execute arbitrary Java on vulnerable PCs by luring victims to malicious sites.

3. Trojan-Downloader.VBS.Agent.zs Downloads and installs new versions of malicious programs, including Trojans and AdWare, on victim PCs.

4. AdWare.Win32.FunWeb.q Displays unsolicited pop-up ads which do not appear to be relevant or associated with the user's browser sessions.

5.Exploit.JS.Agent.bab Uses a Microsoft Internet Explorer vulnerability to silently install malicious software onto the user's computer.

Because, like the fine publication Tablet, whom I borrowed this concept from, I too am committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing I'm able to provide, all free of charge. I take pride in my loyal readership, and I'm thrilled that you choose to engage with me in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse).

I'm asking people who'd like to post comments on my blog to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping me bring you the provocative and/or entertaining articles that brought you here in the first place.

Readers can still interact with me FREE of charge via Facebook comments and Google+ comments! You can also reach me via Twitter @davelucas

I hope this new largely symbolic measure will help create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all! Those of you who choose to contribute, thanks for your support.
