Anatomy of a malware scam | The Register

This type of malware is very, very disturbing. One can only wonder how many users have been duped into installing ineffective security software, and what happened to their private information and credit card data when they paid for it. The presence of such software, and the overall very high quality of the ruse it presents, is frightening. More than likely, thousands of people have been fooled. In fact, this type of deception has been around for several years now, and it would not still be here if it did not work well.

I don’t htink anyone can say at this point that we’re not living in a cheap cyberpunk novel. Not even a good one.
