View Full Version : My First Virus

17th October 2003, 12:44 AM
I got my first virus! Finally, Norton was worth the money. It was a trojan called boot.conf. Anyhow, picked it up on the update, it was identified on my birthday. Could this have been a present?:D

I should have realized something was up because my system was running so slow! So, do I look any different? Do you think my co-workers will be able to tell? Should I tell my mom or not?:D

I can't quite place my finger on it... maybe it's the hat.

The fact that you have a daughter led me to be suspicious...

Its was that damn hat which gave it away!

It sucks getting knocked up, but I sure didn't deserve a virus!:D

troojan is not really a virus, it is like a virus egg.

I use AVG, a free edition. It's picked up three viruses in the last couple of months, so that's been worth the money as well!
Oh Denise! You're not a virgin? And there was me believing in immaculate conception, dammit!

tim wanders off, another belief shattered by a cruel world.

Speaking of Norton...
Bought Norton 2003 in July. Sent in everything required for my $30+ rebate. Haven't heard a thing. 'Supposed to have the rebate by the end of Sept.
You think that they make viruses up to sell more product?
Skeptical - I am.
MAC OS X is rock solid. TYVM.
