And they just now notice...

Post by Dr Jay on Fri Apr 16, 2010 3:51 am

A local news channel in Denver, Colorado, USA has now recognized what rogue security programs are all about.

The link to the "outdated in a sense" article: http://www.thedenverchannel.com/news/23156532/detail.html

A new computer virus poses as popular antivirus software and experts claim it can harm your hardware and compromise your credit.

The virus appears to come from legitimate antivirus programs like McAfee and Norton. It tells users that their computer is infected, then urges the user to enter credit card information to purchase an upgrade to purge the computer.

Greg Cann, vice president of Centennial-based Accelerated Network Solutions, said once you enter your credit card information, hackers get access to your finances and your hard drive.

Give me a break. The actual malware was released over 4 months ago. They are way behind. Goofy

Haha they're outdated alright. It seems that they've never heard about rogues too.

I don't know about smarter. A malware writer is not smart, if he/she is breaking the law and scamming people.

However, skilled would be the word for it.

You're also right, but by the word "smarter", i meant that they are getting smarter in finding ways as how to deceive the users and get their motive achieved.
